Sign up early for everything. Show up early to the port and get your services in order immediately...WiFi, dining times and table(s), excursions. Bring a jacket for the cool nights on the Atlantic Ocean.

Very easy to access all points of Bermuda by public transportation. The island is very safe. Buy yourself a two day pass for $31 and it will give you unlimited access to ferris/buses. Visit Horseshoe Bay for the Beach, Hamilton and St Georges for a glipmse of the culture, food and souvenirs shops.

Plan your excursions .... we had to make a couple of changes and many were already filled. Make sure you bring or buy the Evian water package -- hydration is of supreme importance. We went through 12 large Evian bottles on the trip. Bring a light sweater for walking around at night.

We always stay at the Hilton Galveston Island resort the day before the cruise. They have free parking during your cruise and free shuttle to the port as long as you stay a night at their hotel. Very clean and nice staff. Our debark and embarkation was very quick and staff was very friendly.

the first day there should be a general orientation about the procedure for excursions. If there was one-- it should have been better publicized on the T.V. - we wasted time going up to the pool deck to get towels when they were at the exit pt.- water should be provided free with each excursion

Platinum Theatre fills quickly. Plan on arriving at least 30 minutes before show. Casino was always overwhelmed with smoke except for the single no smoking day. New Hop On Hop Off buses in Jamaica makes getting around easier- but traffic has increased dramatically in Montego Bay - plan for it.

Be prepared for unexpected delays when boarding or disembarking. If you keep your luggage with you - you avoid delays on having it delivered to your room and you are able to disembark quickly.

They have a secret Indian/curry menu in the main dining room. GOOD STUFF.

You would be better off booking excursions through RC - we missed out by not doing that. Not sure the drink package is worth the value when you consider days in port - do the math.

Make sure to sign the activity waivers on the RCI website before you board, you'll save a ton of time. There's a volume control know on your desk in the cabin. yo can turn it on to hear the announcements normally heard in the hallway.

When disembarking you can save some time in line if you get a porter to haul your luggage out. We were in the first line and they were allowed to skip the first line and go to the second line. When you get in line there you have one more line to get to customs and then you are out to catch your shut

Patience is a virtue! We got to port early, but waited in the line and it was HOT! Once the line opened, it went smoothly for the most part. I might avoid the wind jammer and just have breakfast before boarding. Oh and ALWAYS pre-book your excursion. DO NOT wait until you are on the ship

When I called prior to the trip, I was told no shorts at dinner in the my time dining even on casual days, so I brought all dresses, but I would have really liked to wear my nice dress shorts. Tip: You can pack nice shorts for dining except on formal nights.

Just go enjoy yourself, you will have a lot of activities to keep you busy throughout the day... from pool party, street party, quest game, salsa lot of shows. And the specialty restaurant is the best'.... shout out to the Italian restaurant.

The water slides and rides on the top deck are A BLAST! Take advantage of them while people are at port, because it can get crowded.

Make sure to read the schedule for the day so you know what is happening on the ship..

Get trip insurance, check weather, buy drink package (its hard to find good bartenders who know what to do). Try Malcom in the Hoof & Claw (for chocolate almond martinis) and Joey in Sky Bar for pinacoladas with Meyers rum.
