Try Johnny Rockets...burgers were great, all you can eat fries and onion rings, and friendly service. Worth the small extra charge.

We had dinner in the Magelan Dining Room. The food was excellent. Our waiters were Martin and Christian. They were wonderful guys.

Do not buy room 6111 - noisy, door to connected room - you can hear each word. Get your beach towels for private beach day before. We could not get them on day of stop - waiting time was 45!!!!!!!! minutes!

Tip the Staff. Bar staff, cleaning and waiters only make tips. They do not get any base salary. They are out at sea for up to 10 months with no family and work 7 days a week. Dont be cheap on them. Tip them over and above what they tell you too. They do an amazing job.

Johnny Rockets great, Windjammer food is mediocre.

Did not have to wait in long lines to be seated for breakfast in the Windjammer area. At least when you sat down to eat the breakfast was still hot.

We ate most of our meals in the main dining room, but the buffet was also excellent.

Don't forget you can always grab a bite to eat at the Cafe Promenade. They have great sandwiches and cakes.

If you like a more "couple-type" experience, don't go in the middle of the summer on this ship. However, still very nice and had a great time. The ice show as outstanding.

Ask for Luke as your head waiter and Kenger as you asst. waiter. You will have a smile on your face every night for dinner.

It will save you about an hour of time everyday if you skip dessert at the main dining and have it at the buffet with even more selections.

Eat breakfast in the dining room! It is the best food, wonderful service, and not very busy! The deck on the 12th floor is secluded and quiet and you can sit on the outside aisle and watch the ocean go by! The "quiet pool" was often busy and crowded and not much in the sun.

The ice show was definitely worth going to. We also enjoyed the café on the fifth level several times. If you are just looking for something light or just a beverage and cookies or other dessert - free - this is the place to go.

Go to the promenade cafe for baked goods and pizza or a cookie snack.
