You should plan ahead where to go before arriving on every port. Some are easily accessible through local trains & that will save you money.

make the most of your day, peruse your Cruise Compass that is left in your room for the next day so you don't miss out on anything that you would be interested in. Don't be afraid to try something new. You can bring onboard 2 - 750ml (standard size) bottles of wine per stateroom. we had a glass while getting ready for dinner in the room. You can also take it to the dining room and they will serve it with your dinner. Bring extension cords in your carry on, you will need them. And a night light if you have an interior room...it is pitch black when you turn off the lights.

Water stations are throughout the ship and a few on Deck 5 (the promenade) were our favorites. Both in the Starbucks and Sorrento’s they have flavored the water with lemons, oranges or mint along with having plain ice water available. It was a great place to grab a drink to stay hydrated without going all the way to the Windjammer. Premium drink package was worth every penny!

The salad at the Cafe on the Prominade was great. Fabulous amaretto cookies at Sorrento's.

Room service breakfast on days in port is the way to go. The buffet is packed with everyone wanting to get off the ship early.

Don't race to get off the ship at Belize ... the lines are long and poorly organized by the cruise staff ... Belize City is really an undeveloped dump with a very nice ship terminal (but don't leave the terminal!) ... good shops & bars. There are four pharmacies at the terminal selling cheap counterfeit pills to tourists ... beware!

The ice show is great and very popular. It should be booked in advance so as to get a seat.

If it is your first cruise watch the cruise ship channels. Pay attention to the port of calls and the map. Plan every evening for the next days schedule. You can't do everything so plan out your day. Take pictures. The ship is beautiful!

Totally eliminate INDOOR smoking. If people want to smoke, let them go on deck. There were several entertainment groups we could not watch because they were in the smaller bar/pub areas where smoking was allowed.

No need to rush to book the ice show, it plays 4 times during the trip, and if you didn't book it, you can alwasy go 15 min before the show start and just walk in.

I cannot stand cigarette smoke and although we avoided the casino we were often assaulted with smoke on the stairs from decks 3 through 5.

Found free coffee and tea at Starbucks the last night,which would have been beneficial had we known the first night.There is a white dress up night we didn't know about until that day,be prepared.It did have a wonderful gym.

Seriously consider pre-reserving show times online. You can due this from 90 - up to 4 days before your cruise. You can do it on board also but do so right away after you board. You are seated on a first come first serve basis. Without a reservation, you aren't ensured a seat in the theater.

Windjammer Cafe had plenty of food variety & no waiting to be served, move at your own pace, good tunes playing in the background while you eat. Take the stairs every time instead of waiting for the elevators & you won't have to worry about what you eat! :)

Sign up early for rockclimbing as the lines get long and they take a 2 hour break at lunch. When it's time to debark, if you don't have a lot of luggage, carry it yourself at the earliest timeslot or just expect to wait in very long lines.

I think the informal buffet was the best place to have dinner if you wanted a relaxed atmosphere with great food choices. The quality was great everywhere but the lines and crowd was non-existent in the evening.

Saturday Night Fever Show was amazing! Don't miss it.
