If you want to eat in the "specialty" dining rooms make sure to make your arrangements when you board for the week as their availability for same day or day before dining is non existent

There are only two stair wells that go above the 7th floor. If you like to walk the steps and avoid the elevator lines, be aware they are only located at the far front and aft of the ship.

Allow extra time to get back to the ship due to tendering in lifeboats at Princess Cay.

If you are anytime dining, make sure you arrive early or make a reservation. Be prepared to wait a while to be served once you are seated. Having a happy hour bite before you go to dinner would probably be a good idea. Also get to the theatre about 30 mins. before show time to get a seat.

Stop and enjoy all the moments. It is very easy to get around the ship. The nooks and quiet spots are worth discovering. It was a beautiful, elegant environment - I would encourage travelers to have a beverage in every bar and snack/meal in every restaurant - it is worth it!

I felt that purchasing the coffee card was a great bargain for those who crave caffeine.

Go for larger balcony stateroom (I think they call it a mini-suite) - but it is really just a larger stateroom

If you like IPA (beer), Princess has their own microbrew that's pretty good. Be sure to ask for it - it's called Seawitch.

Book near the front or rear of the ships if you want access to stairs. Get a drink before you go into the theater as there is no bar service in there.

Anytime dining between 6-6:45 was never a problem. Arrive at the shows 15 minutes early since they fill-up fast.

Don't overly pack. Use the laundry service. That way you can save room for souvenirs or shopping.

Do not expect any help from the Customer Service Desk Personnel. Be aware of pick pockets at EVERY PORT

Enjoy the good food in your formal dining restaurant, or go to Alfredo'S and to the buffett at Horizons. The Agnoleti dish and the pizzas in Alfredo's were superb.

Except for Berlin and St. Petersburg, one can plan to see many of the sites in the other ports on your own!

We figured out after a day or two, when the peak times were at the restaurants and the buffet, and we avoided those times. I have read many reviews that stated that crowds and waiting were a problem. With a little observation, we did not have a problem.
