Book the specialty dining rooms in advance of boarding the ship or immediately when on board. You're not limited to the number of times you can dine in them but reservations fill up ultra fast. Transportation is NOT included to and from the airport/ship.
When given the opportunity to book specialty restaurants ahead of time, do so. Spread them out so that you can check them out early, mid cruise, and near the end when they are usually booked full. Enjoy the happy hours and various tastings if alcohol is in your plans. They are a great way to save.
If you're an early riser, coffee is available in the Horizons Lounge. Don't miss afternoon tea in Horizons -- but get there early for the best seats! On days at sea, take breakfast in the dining room -- it's more relaxing than the buffet in the Terrace Cafe.
Older ship, so be prepared for things to go wrong, they will! Spoke to so many passengers who were unhappy with their rooms - leaks, smells, etc...
The card room was very well equipped with mahjongg, puzzles, all kinds of cards and games.....better than most!
Book the specialty dining rooms in advance, or as soon as possible after boarding - there is no charge, but seating id limited, and reservations tend to fill up fast.
Excursions can be booked 'al a carte', or if you plan to take several and book in advance, a discount is often available.
Bring a sense of adventure to this route; weather is unpredictable and the ocean can be rough at times (11 feet waves). The temperature changes very quickly, on land and on the ocean, so highly recommend to pack for dry/wet and warm/cool weather.
1) Book a specialty restaurant for the first night of the cruise. It’s easy to get the table of your choice at the time of your choice. And you won’t be tired of eating yet!
2) The Cuban Affair by Nelson DeMille was fun to read on board. Some of protagonist’s experiences will parallel yours and you’ll recognize the specific locations in Havana.
