Keep in mind the staterooms are considerably smaller than on the larger ships. We upgraded to a junior suite because of the balcony, but we're so happy we did because it is about the size of the regular balcony cabins on other ships. I peeked into some of the regular cabins and they are TINY, barely room to move around, and some of our dinner mates complained about that.

If you book a room that is near the lobby staircase...beware! That is where a lot of the entertainment happens (on all levels). It was pretty loud on Disco night and hard to sleep. The noise travels down the hallways.

Choose your room wisely and not above any clubs

Seek a cabin on Decks 7 Or 8 aft as there is less noise from below and above. Ship”# renovation was great.

This is a small and older ship but the cleanliest and staff was great!

It's a smaller ship which is nice in that you can easily and quickly get anywhere on the ship.

Find out the time that the ship returns and allow lots of time between the ship's return and your flight home.

There are no irons on the ship. You need to pack wrinkle free clothes.

I really enjoyed this trip because even though the ship was full, we had plenty of room and weren't bumping into people. There were no lines to get into the restaurants or at any of the activities. There was someone serving frozen yogurt cones most of the day and no matter what time we came from an excursion we were able to go into Windjammer and get some food and able to rehydrate after the hot sun. The waiters in Windjammer were constantly cleaning tables to make room for more guests, but they weren't in our way. We have taken the River Cruise on the Danube with only 150 passengers on board so we were concerned about 1600+ passengers, but it was a non-issue. I would strongly recommend this cruise.

Be mindful that it's an older and smaller ship. There aren't a lot of bells and whistles. The pool and hot tub area is small

Just enjoy it for what it is. Especially if like me you have been on all the huge ships like the Anthem and the Oasis and the Allure, then go expecting a major downsize, relax, find something in that Compass that you can take part in or enjoy watching others participating in, and decide to make it one of your best vacations. The shore excursions can help to make your vacation on a small ship fabulous too.

Deck 4 was on the same deck our dinning room was. Made it an easy walk to it.
