Ask to sit in Anthony's section in the Michelangelo's dining room!!
The food on this trip was so good. I wanted to try everything. Grab some pizza at the pizzeria let at night and chat with friends.
Love the coffee bar and staff !
Angela, the pop choir director and her husband Dave who is also a cruise employee are a hoot!!!
The Newlywed game is a must see. Hilarious. Need a balcony on this ship. Some beautiful sites to see.
Don’t miss the balloon drop in the atrium – very fun!
Don't forget to try out the mini golf on the sports deck!
Explore the entire ship. There is an aft elevator hidden away which goes all the way to deck 19 for golf, BB, and a great observation deck. All the way forward on deck 14 there is a door that is not marked which leads to the observation area on top of the bridge. This area gives the best view along both sides of the ship, and of course a panoramic view forward.
I had NO desire to go on this cruise but my wife and family talked me into it. I figured I would just go along with the program and enjoy myself. In the end, I loved it and can't wait to go again. To me, 7 days was not enough! I feel like there was so much more on the cruise that we may have missed. With all of the activity on the ship, I found our at sea days to be just as fun as the port days.
Anytime dining was extremely complicated to utilize in dining rooms and reservations were hard to get yet it seemed that many parts of dining rooms sat empty.
Take a power strip! There is only 1 outlet in the cabin and if you need to recharge phone, tablet, laptop, etc you will want access to electricity!
Take advantage of the optional dining places to eat. The Crown Steak House was a teriffic place to dine. The food, the ambiance, and the servers were super.
The Trident Grill and the Pizzeria are not to be missed. Both are opened for lunch and dinner, It saves the hassle and crowds of going in to the Horizon Court.
If you want an "Anytime" dining reservation for 5:30 p.m., you need to phone Reservations right at 8:00 a.m..
The international cafe is a great place to meet and have a nice snack. The Gelato is great, treat yourself. My opionion is the three scoops is worth the $1.50.
It is well worth the $25 cover charge to dine at the Crown Grill. Joel was an a wonderful server, and was very helpful in recommending places to see on our upcoming trip to the Philippines.
Ship's foods ,entertainment were great but need Buffet to be opened until Midnight and add more Dance floor area in the Wheelhouse Ball room .
Don't forget to order a specialty coffee from Roweena with the design in it .
If you are a smoker - (or even if you aren't) don't miss out on the Riviera Deck, It's the gem of the ship.
Don't waste your time trying to do an excursion in Victoria, BC. There just isn't enough time, go enjoy the shopping within walking distance instead.
