Females who want to try the FlowRider, you might want to consider a tee shirt over your bikini. I've seen a few tops come off. Guys make sure that your trunks are on tightly for the same reason. Have fun! They help you get started & demonstrate tricks for you to try.

If you wish to try out the ice skating rink you will need to wear long pants. Be sure to bring a pair of comfortable one. The ship provides the skates. I'd bring heavy socks too for comfort.

If you are booking an inside cabin consider the Promenade staterooms for a little more money. You get a large picture window overlooking the Royal Promenade. These have an excellent view of the parades, dance shows and Meet the Captain events. They have a more open feeling.

Seriously consider pre-reserving show times online. You can due this from 90 - up to 4 days before your cruise. You can do it on board also but do so right away after you board. You are seated on a first come first serve basis. Without a reservation, you aren't ensured a seat in the theater.

Even if you don't want to try out the FlowRider yourself, go up to Deck 13 and watch the action. There is stadium seating and the "show" is very entertaining. You may even get up your nerve to try it yourself. Bring your camera.

Look for the complementary soft ice cream cone machine on the pool deck. I loved the swirl chocolate & vanilla.

Be sure to try the pizzas at Sorrento's in the Royal Promenade. They are much better than most other cruise line pizzas. They have yummy desserts also and they are complementary.

Sign up for activities on day one or you risk missing out. Also, if you have issues with your fine dining seating correct it on day one.

Ship is large so when you book it be sure to get a Stateroom on Deck 7 near the Elevators or else you have a lot of walking. Be sure to avail yourself of the off ship excursions especially in Jamaica on a bamboo raft on one of the many rivers on the island..

A clock in each room would be helpful.

Breakfast in the dining room was great. Not noisy and crowded

If you complete your pre board paperwork check in will take less than 5 minutes.

I like the main dinning room for dinner, but the line-up for breakfast was some times too long. Windjammer restaurant was my favorite for breakfast and lunch.

If you want to participate in any of the games get there really early otherwise you will not get a seat. The ice skating show was wonderful don't miss it. Make sure you explore everything. You have to go to the front of the ship on deck 5 at sunset, take your camera.

Zipline on Labadee was fun, my first time! I would have gone again if it were not so expensive. If you like sea turtles go to the turtle farm.

For early morning coffee and muffin, stop on Deck #5 at the café (24 hour). Happy servers ready and waiting with hot coffee and treats! Loved it.

Do the 6 o'clock dining or my time dining. We did 8pm dining and missed several shows we were interested
