The best place to sit in the Windjammer restaurant is outside on the very back of the ship. It was always breezy and not crowded.

Italian restaurant is better that chops. Dining room breakfast is very nice & very good Late dining at 8:30 was to late for me, got done by 9:30 - 10 and then so full wanted to go to bed!

The Windjammer is a great place to have a meal or a quick snack. Always plenty of options and the food changes daily.

My Time dining is great. Didn't think I would like it but it worked out well.

Wait a while (an hour or so) after the ship docks, the lines are shorter, elevators are faster and less confusion.

Portofino's Italian specialty restaurant was excellent. Service was very attentive. Food from starters to dessert was way above average.

Nice to eat outside at back of the ship on lido deck or one deck above at Sea View Cafe. Had a "chocolate breakfast" special menu at main dining room one day on the cruise

Sea View Cafe on deck 12 was a godsend - food prepared fresh and menu is good. Try the Grouper Salad or Cuban Sandwich. We went there in afternoon as we anticipated we would not be eating much in dining room. Pit Stop Sports Bar is a good late afternoon alternative - live sports and cold beer.

There were six of us in our group and it was difficult to find any location to play cards.

Before you book a certain room number, make sure you are not over a lounge area. They play music until about midnight. We didn't find the Sea View café until the 6th day of the cruise. They had the best sandwiches and snacks.

If you're sailing from San Juan, get there a day early. We booked flights to arrive mid-afternoon, but ended up getting there just before it sailed due to flight delays. We missed the first day- in port on the ship because of this.
