Plan your excursions in advance...we didn't because we didn't know what was best to do. Choices seemed overwhelming so we wanted to talk to staff about it however, when we did that...we had other guests hanging over us, staring at us, and rushing us plus rushing the attendant too...and just making an overall jerk of themselves...(they had planned theirs and had a question so we were in the way----you know how people are nowadays, they are rude and impatient.) So we basically discussed all our options with a random third party standing over us and staring at us and we made decisions we may not have made had those guests been told to get in line and wait their turn...which is tough to wait...but fair!!! We waited our turn!!! (Note to staff: Put a rope up that defines a line for people to get in so that other guests do not walk up to the counter where guests are being waited on and be a nuisance to other paying guests handling their personal excursions.)

You will pay for Bottled water. Try to educate yourself to all possibilities of shipboard life. We never found all of the info - they did not provide us with enough info. Read Reviews. Ours is 5-star. Haven't read other reviews yet, but I can't imagine what world people are living in that went on our cruise and gave a bad review.

The Silk Den was always a quiet bar with a great view...an alternative to the Crowsnest.

Book all that you can in advance through HAL's website, such as wine packages, spa packages, massage, etc... it avoids having to rush around when you arrive and you can enjoy just exploring the ship. Whatever happens, relax and enjoy it! You aren't working!
