This being our third trip on this ship my wife and I find the experience normally quite pleasant. Get specialty restaurant reservations when you first get on and don't be shy about going back for more as the cruise goes on. Participate in one or two of the on board cooking classes, The artists loft offers free classes on sea days. Collect your Big O Points and cash them in for hats, shirts, etc. at the end of the cruise. From 5 to 6 in the evening drinks are 2 for one in most of the bars, take a glass of wine to dinner. Wash your hands. (Note: If they start increase sanitation they will shut down the self service laundry. But you can get 20 items washed in 24 hours for $26)

Americans should bring electric adaptors. Although there are a couple of Edison (USA type) outlets we needed to do some sharing with our one adaptor. Brush up on your French as some Islands' people don't speak English.

This ship has an extensive library where you may exchange your books. It was the best we've seen, and I will remember to take books for the exchange next time.

Airport transfers and excursions are the weakest parts. Wish I had checked where there were hop-on, hop-off busses available as better alternatives
