If you like to drink a lot, a beverage package may be something to consider. The cost of a beer is around $6.00, a mixed drink $7.00, and a glass of wine $7.00. FYI: gratuity's are added on for any purchases you make at the bar.

The Solarium pool area was less crowded than the main pool on most days. The Sea View Cafe was a little hidden gym up on the 12th deck that served made to order diner food - great for a quick snack, especially when the Windjammer was closed between meals!

The Poolside Bar has the best staff. Victor and Rohan were amazing and they make a mean "Sex on the Ship". If you like red beers, ask for a Red Eye so they know what you're talking about. Also, the 5th floor allows you to walk outside the ship 360 degrees - it's awesome!!!

The forward elevators are much less crowded than the midship elevators.

Keep cellphones and iPads away from keycards. We had to have our cards replaced 4 times.

The Captain and his immediate staff are really passenger minded. They are seen more than on other ships.

Breakfast in on the balcony of my room was a great way to start the day!

Go to the Tides restaurant for breakfast - it offers food choices that are not available in the Windjammer in a relaxed and comfortable restaurant setting. There is a small buffet area which includes cereal muesli (awesome) in addition to ordering from a menu. The seating area for the Windjammer extends to the back of the ship - be careful when it's windy - you may lose much of your meal from the wind.

The Seaview cafe has great sandwiches and is opened when the windjamer is closed, located on deck 12 in the back near the basball court and children's pool. Had a cabin near the centrium which did have a little noise doing activites but nothing really to complain about

Don't book a balcony room on 10 at the Aft of the ship...the Windjammer is right above you and you will hear the furniture move around all day and night. Book one floor down on 9. :)

Be sure you look where you are on the ship as elevator banks will block you way to some places and you'll have to back track.

Any room is a good room on this ship.

Deck 11 the Windjammer will be your best friend for buffet style food. If you are ever late for your regular meal time then you can definitely find food.
