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.

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

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

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.

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

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

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!

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.

Be aware that a set of stairs are missing in the center elevator area so book accordingly.

Room was good except for bunk beds that were in the way of getting in and out of our bed,

Wear tennis shoes with good treads to go to the Acropolis--dangerously slippery walk

There is no stairway in the center of the ship. So you will need to use an elevator which can take forever.

IF you are going on a long cruise I would recommend a balcony. Interior rooms seemed small.

I think the Balcony Cabin was a bit smaller than on other ships, however we managed to exchange places to move around.
