Remember to check the fish on the carpet, they swim towards the Bow except the Red one who bucks the trend IE Freestyle :-) Study the deck plans on the NCL website prior to cruising so you know where everything is and how to get there. I often saw people looking a bit confused. The only thing I wonder about is why the corridor on port side from the atrium to the center elevators is block by whatever is behind the door. I don't remember that on the Jewel, and the Star and Dawn do not have that blockage, I was always going to the wrong side when departing the elevator, but you can always exit the door to the prominade and go around outside. Also note that deck 6 has the Galley between the 2 MDR's so you cannot walk thru from Center elevators to the Aft MDR. One elevator in the Aft bank does go to deck 6 but otherwise the steps from Deck 7 to the aft MDR are the best way to get there. I would suggest that any Handicapped persons avoid this venue and dine in the midship MDR.

The Spinnaker Lounge; Sherman and Gary are amazing bar tenders and made us feel like we were at our local hangout. The Spinnaker is at the front of the ship and has an amazing view. It was a great place to watch our arrival in Bermuda.

It is a relatively small cruise ship so be prepared for a great time. Can get a little rough in high seas.

Bring a good book or two and relax. Plenty of deck chairs, a quiet library, and a board game room. It's not necessary to spend a ton of money to enjoy a cruise.

Stay away from the casino! The buffets are ok. Get the dining package if you can. Eat at Cagney's and Teppanyaki. The O'shehans is not open 24 hours this food can be worse then the Buffet.

Take advantage of all outdoor places on the ship for amazing views of the water. There are places to sit almost anywhere on the ship to just relax read a book or look at the waves.
