I like the smaller ships for you don't get overwhelmed as with the bigger vessels. It's a more personal and relaxing atmosphere.

Get to know the layout of the ship on your first day at sea. It will help you plan your activities.

Staterooms were too small and cramped, but overall it was comfortable. Free room service for breakfast was a great option.

Don't pay extra for a mini suite, they were not roomy enough. The buffets were better than on most other Ships in the same class

Reservations for restaurants will save you time! No need to bring hair dryer because there is one in the staterooms. Plenty of towels in bathroom as well as pool beach towels given to you at the pool.

Timing is everything!! Get your deck lounge chair early on sea days, only book in the dining room if your prepared to waste 3 hours, the main buffet is great but watch your time as it can get crowded quickly and the pools are salt water not chlorine!! Prepare for the SUN, sunscreen is not optional!!

If you go to the 4th deck and make your way to the back of the ship you can get some excellent pictures!

Get up early, before 8 or 9am and the pool deck is virtually empty. All the kids sleep in after partying all night. It's then best time to use the hot tub and the pool. At 6 am, I had the entire pool deck to myself. Like it was my ship alone. Best time to get a sun chair too.

Go to the upper decks for a better chance at getting deck chairs. I slept kind of late on most days (like 10/11am) and didn't have too much trouble getting deck chairs up on the higher decks. If you are an earlier riser then you can easily find one with a good view up on high! Higher is less noisy!

The Garden Cafe is good for breakfast as long as you have patience. The omelet station is great. If you are health conscious then ask them to spray the pan for your omelet rather than use the oil that they ladle into the pan.

Use the front and back elevators not the middle ones, they are constantly in use.

Shows are at 7 & 9pm and last about an hour. Consider this when making dinner reservations . Make dinner reservations for every night asap way before cruise date.Choose shower not deluxe tub. Take a glass of water with you back to your cabin after each meal to save $6.50/ bottlewater. cagney 's#1!
