Head to the Solarium - it's beautiful, quiet, and feels like a tropical oasis. Also - sign up for iFly and other special amenities as soon as you get on the ship!

When arriving at dock in Bayonne find one of the greeters with I pads and stick to your arrival time. Check in can be a breeze if done correctly.

Must make reservations for just about everything before boarding.

We made all of our reservations before we left on the cruise which left us more time to enjoy the ships activities rather than waiting on line to go to dinner or shows. The major problem we had was with the website for making these reservations - we had to call Royal Caribbean several times.

Make reservations for dining and entertainment well in advance (at least 3 weeks). Avoid Deck 6 balconies. Royal Theater is lovely, but there are poles in rear and many seats in the side part of the balcony have obstructed views, so arrive early (at least 15 minutes) to avoid those seats.

The high speed internet was great. I am a college professor and need to be online each day. We were very fortunate that the captain gave everyone free internet access during the entire cruise.

Make your reservations for the restaurants and the shows before you board. Avoid the lines trying to make reservation on board.

Read the review. Any cruise is better than work but this one could let you down if your expectations are too high.

The Two70 (this is the correct spelling) restaurant is a gem, not to be missed if you like good sandwiches and salads. The entertainment is fun but limited.

To many people....to little staff.....and way to many lines. I don't want to pay $5,000 for a vacation and wait in lines. We slept a lot to stay away from all the crap we were putting up with. You couldn't even get a pitcher of ice water delivered to the room. Never again.

Don't choose this ship. You will be disappointed. And broke.

My recommendation is to avoid this ship, but if you decide to go, make your reservations for everything as soon as you make your booking. Plan on eating in the specialty restaurants . Their food is a bit better . It will be a while before I spend my money on a royal Caribbean ship again.
