Stay in the midship. Don't buy the drink cards, they are expensive. Also Excurisions are overly priced. I was able to find all my excursion on either Orbitz or on my own. On Kauai, we booked a helicopter trip, they wanted 325.00 on the ship and we found it for 189.00 per person. I highly recomm
Order room service breakfast on those mornings when you have an early shore excursion. The international cafe is our favorite for lunch--light, healthy food choices. The sun deck adjacent to the serenity spa is the perfect quiet place to read your favorite novel and be away from the crowds.
We were booked for the fixed dinning but when we got on-board they had changed us to anytime dining. That worded out well for us because we go there when it opened and there wasn't much of a line.Later (around 6:30) had longer lines and wait times.
Highly recommend anytime dining. The $7 drink plan worked well and balanced the time we were off the boat.
Be sure to check out the international cafe on the bottom floor of the piatza--open 24 hrs and has the best desserts on the ship.
Tea time is a great experience and even if you are not a tea drinker, we suggest you try it. It is wonderful to take the time to set and talk with each other and with other passengers having tea. You might be surprised how much you can enjoy a cup of tea at tea time ;)
To get around the crowding at dining on the 14th floor for breafast or lunch, just go relax in the main dining room and be served a wonder meal in a relaxing environment with fighting for a table on the 14th dining area.
