I lost a diamond necklace on the next to last night and the cleaning service people found it and turned it in that says something for the honesty of the ships staff
Take advantage of the free on-board activities such as trivia, the quest, and late night comedy.
Bring a few extension cords. The room had only a few outlets.
Definitely hit up the Viking Lounge bar, and make sure you take the time to see the comedy shows as well as the game show "The Quest." These were hilarious and worth staying up for (as long as you're willing to get a little crazy).
If you purchase digital images of your photos, ask them to show you the image file before you leave the shop. Once you're off the ship, it is very difficult to get resolution.
Generally, do as much research as you can before you book............
Things they don't tell you. Wi-Fi is $40/day, and no phone service without it. Get a tender ticket early for Grand Cayman or it will take you 3-4 hours to get off the ship. Don't buy Cuban cigars to bring back. (immigration will destroy).
My Waiter Juan always had my favorite drink on the table before I got there for dinner.
The promenade was really pretty. We had an emergency at home and inquired about a ship to shore phone call. Without knowing our details, the front desk offered us a free call.
The ship is so big and beautiful. Look at the layout ahead of time to have an idea where to go. 1st day, go to studio B to get ice show tickets, they're free, but needed for the limited seating shows! Try the rockwall, flowrider, and ice rink! Get to know your stateroom attendant, very helpful!
Bring jacket for ice shows. Virtual balcony was a nice touch for inside cabin.
Always have breakfast at the Windjammer. Great views of where you have been. The pool deck is a great place to relax and meet people.
Room service was so quick at getting exactly what I asked for.
Enjoy the Piano Man. He is much fun.
You will need to bring multi-plugs or extension cords. I also travel with a small fan since I am used to ceiling fans. I kept getting turned around so an in-room ship map would be helpful! Pre-plan your on-shore excursions and book early. The best sold out early!
Eating breakfast and dinner in the dining room is a great way to meet people!
quite spot captain's observation deck, very nice place to relax without the crowd.
Explore every available area of the ship. There is a lot to see and do and if you don't take some time to explore the ship, you will miss something for sure.
Crew members-smiling faces everywhere. Lots of effort, talent & interest in our cruise experience.
Make sure you explore every part of the ship! So many things to see and do.
