Study the layout and find out how to get from one place to another - our cabin was in the back and to get to the middle of the ship, you couldn't walk thru the dining rooms.

TRY TO BOOK A CABIN IN THE CENTER OF THE SHIP. IT IS A VERY LONG SHIP. WE DID NOT GO TO THE SPECIALTY RESTAURANT. THERE WAS VERY GOOD FOOD IN THE DINING ROOM. THE SPECIALTY RESTAURANT IS A PART OF THE BUFFET DURING THE DAY. IT COULD HAVE BEEN A BIT MORE EXCLUSIVE. THERE ARE 2 STANDARD DINING ROOMS, SAME FOOD, BUT THE LA FONTAINE SEEMED CLASSIER.

Not too bad if you can put up with kids and Europeans with a mixed bag of different languages and attitudes. Service is great compensating for some of the flaws and annoyances. The ship itself is awesome with great interiors.

Lunch buffet is the best food of the day.

Roll back and enjoy yourself. The lines are not large and shore excursions are pleasent.

Pick "late dining" when there isn't as many children screaming as during "early dining"

As the cafeteria is only open 20 hours per day, familiarise yourself with its timings to avoid disappointment.

They upcharge for everything (ice cream, movies, etc) so be prepared to spend some extra cash.

The Jucuzzi's are not hot and are way too small. There should be many more and hotter. Even the ones in the Spa are not hot at all. I was willing to pay extra, but when I checked if they were hot- they were not.

You'll have a fabulous time- take note of whether your cabin number is odd or even and you won't get lost!

Book a Balcony cabin like we did. It's well worth the extra money. Take advantage of all the facilities on board and if you're fit, explore each port. There is such variety.

Do not get excited about the food! Only basic shampoo and shower gel in your cabin so take your own.
