The breakfast in the dining room was excellent. We went there the last 2 days...wish we had done it sooner.

Don't buy drink passes till you get on the ship, you can buy them daily for the same price and be aware the ship will run out of bottled water but you can bring it on at each port. Free sandwiches muffins brownies and pizza along with free water and iced tea on deck 5,very good service and food.

Don't get in a hurry to buy gifts or extra services (spa, upgraded dining, etc.) Each night you will get a sheet outlining the next day's activities that will have specials - like half price spa day! Significant savings.

Do not travel to Bermuda in April. Wait until May/June for nicer weather...wore warm clothes the whole trip!

Go to the windjammer café for breakfast and lunch. It's a buffett style set-up. They always have plenty to choose from, ample seating and excellent service.

Visit the Stairway of the Stars in the forward stairwell. It's all pop music memorabilia.

We really liked that we could get a drink, cup of coffee or snack any time at the Promenade Café.

For those who want a veggie burger, just ask at the hamburger counter. You will have to wait about 10 minutes.

Use the outside deck to walk from end to end - less people and a gorgeous view
