Don't overpack. Much of cruise is casual dress.

Book your restaurants early but don't worry if you end up with not getting what you want...we were able to easily book on board for the number of reservations we wanted. Plan your excursions around the in port schedule. We booked an excursion that did not allow us any time in the port to explore..

Grab headphones if you go to the gym for the treadmill. The treadmills face a blank wall and do not have TVs.

This is for people who want lots of personal space - we called it the Ghost ship because you can walk all over and see only a few people.

Overall the weather was overcast or there was rain most days. Transparency about weather and risk needed.
