Just know you will have to be back on the boat by 7:30pm. You do not need an excursion everywhere you go esp. Mykonos and Rhondes since you pull right up to the ports unless you have something far you want to see.

Book shore excursions early!!!! Also make sure you get familiar with the layout. It gets kinda confusing.

Do and wear what your comfortable with. If it means wearing a second hand creased tux (as the majority seem to do) floats your boat then go for it. What is really annoying are the sideway glances at those that don't, even though we were wearing Armani slacks and shirt and my partner wearing her Louboutin shoes and bag, totally out of order and pathetic!

When there's a storm at sea, go to the pool tables on deck 6 to see how they're stabilising to make sure the balls don't roll by themselves.

Take the time to explore the ship, check out the restaurants and enjoy the amenities. The on board shopping was pretty poor, but it almost always is.

I would say choose another ship. RCI has ships that are much nicer and more comfortable ships with great food and wonderful entertainment.
