-Buffet- head straight to the back and make a right... you can sit in the Italian restaurant where they have an extra beverage station set up.. it's not as crowded. -When getting tender tickets for Great Stirrup Cay, get down there early as the line wraps around the ship.

Join the spa! For ~$115 you get unlimited spa access for the week on the GEM. Well worth it, especially if you're looking for a more relaxing time (the pool decks are always packed with kids and roudy adults, while the spa has a very large jetted-pool and hot-tubs).

Get up early to enjoy it all...plus make sure that anything you want to participate in you must get there at least 30 minutes early to get a good seat

Buffet: head to the aft and turn right for extra seating and for your coffee and drinks Duty Free Shop: Get there 10 minutes before it opens. It's a mad rush like a K-Mart blue light special! Dinner reservations: Make them asap! Specialty restaurants sell out quick

If you order a bucket of beer, it's buy 5 get 1 free. The "free" beer ends up making them a much more reasonable price each.

Go to the nightly shows. They are spectacular. Late night entertainment is a must. Try tennis on the sport court.

The Grand Pacific was a nice free restaurant. Ask for the more private section if you want to talk. The Garden Cafe buffet was perfectly acceptable. Dine in or bring a plate back to your suite. Le Bistro has a cover charge - ask for a more private section on dress up day and your elegance will be enhanced. Cagney’s was a nice breakfast/lunch amenity when you sign up for a special suite. Eat in or order out.
