Don't sail on this ship if you want excellence in food. Beware of the duty free gimmick. If you purchase anything over your allowance the ship reports it to customs when you land and you will pay a duty tax. THey tell you it's a random selection but you are tagged before you leave the ship. Do all your expensive shopping in ports of call. This is dishonest to try to dupe you into making purchases.

We booked our shows before we sailed and my time dining is the way to go and as soon as you get onboard go and organise your off shore tours

Make your dinner reservations when you get on board at the main dining room entrance. Even if you don't show up for that time it will save you any waiting. The larger your party the more difficult to get a table for everyone when you want it. Harmony has about 3 sit down restaurants for free.

Not surprising given the size of the ship, but there were a lot of people on the ship. Having a cabin on a floor close to where you spend the bulk of your time can help save time if you can take the stairs up or down a flight VS having to wait on one of the elevators.

Don't forget a rain coat, walkie talkies to keep up with one another, dining room dinner is about 2 hours so dine early if you want to make the 8 pm shows. Take the stairs, elevator lines can be long! Must make reservations for shows before you board or you may not get to see them all.

Don't worry about having a lot of cash.

book everything in advance. you can always change stuff when you are aboard. download the RC app. bring lots of sunscreen. no "drug" type store on ship only VERY minimal items in one store. You do not have to wear formal attire if you do not want to. it may be fun to dress up but it is not necessary - you can wear shorts.

I made all of our on board entertainment reservations and dinner reservations prior to arriving. This made things much easier I also downloaded the Royal IQ app.

If you need help with excursions once you are on the ship, ask for Gerrson...he was very nice and informative. Do not miss Columbus...one of the best productions on land or sea! Consider Windjammer for sit down meals. The main dining has helpful wait staff, but can't beat the Windjammer view

We found it very helpful to make our reservations for dinner, entertainment, etc. before arriving. This was one less thing we had to think about.

TIP THE CREW!! Don't be cheap! They work hard to make sure you have a memorable cruise vacation. A few bucks won't kill you It's big! You simply will not get to everything. Don't get overwhelmed - plan! Definitely get the alcohol package. Definitely try some or all of the specialty dining options.

Reserve the shows in advance, to make sure you get into to see them. I also highly recommend the dining packages as an economical way to get better food and better service than the MDR.

I don't think I would suggest it if the individual loves food like I do.

Avoid this ship if interested in the peaceful serenity of the sea... It's a mobile bar, restaurant and super mall. quiet spaces don't exist. Even room service comes with a fee.. You are nickel and dimed to death.. Check out Oceania and Seabourn and Vilking for cruising as It should be, and when all is said and done==the cost is not that significantly higher than what you will end up spend on this moving city... Best time to be on ship is when it's visiting a port and most of the passenger on on shore... (this was my 19th cruise-speaking from experience)
