There are two areas in the buffet. Go to the one in the back. It's not as busy until the last couple days when everyone else figures out to go back there. If there are no seats in the dining area, go upstairs to Sorrentos for more seating and it's less busy.
We were glad that we purchased our excursions ahead of time. We did purchase the Coco Cay Stingray Excursion on ship right as we entered the ship when the lines were short. Otherwise the lines always seemed to be long. We chose to carry our luggage off ship the morning of departure...shorter wait.
Include a room freshener in your list of things to take with you.; I did and it helped some.
Enjoy the Talent Show in the Dining room (dining room wait and kitchen staff) and the Parade of International Flags, and most of all, compliment the good service provided by the staff; they deserve it.
