The LIDO deck was very busy for breakfast - better to use the dining room !

Best food in the Pinnacle Grill, although early nights in the main dining room were good. Breakfast for sure in the buffet, no where else. Lunch in Pinnacle was fantastic!

You'll enjoy sailing a smaller (1400 passengers) vessel rather than the mega cruise ships

The gala dinners don’t require ladies to wear cocktail dresses, and very few did, so leave them at home and save space

When the weather is ok do breakfest on the after deck.

the early night shows/entertainment and the America's test Kitchen shows both fill up quick so I suggest getting there 15-20 mins early.

For this transpacific sailing I was in the perfect location for the poets and in particular glacier bay! But it’s location was great for either the forward or aft activities and access to Neptune lounge, explorers cafe and/or any of the public areas. Perfect ship size

Really get to know the crew and reward them with tips when they've really helped you out. They work HARD for a little bit of money and they should be recognized with praise and tangible cash whenever possible. Some Australians (who don't do tipping where they come from) actually advised us to have our cabin gratuity charges removed because the crew is well paid. I disagree. Also, if the captain opens the bow of the ship for viewing, it's a good experience once. Get your photo with the ship's bell and that will be fine. It's deck 4 forward and you get there through the main theater backstage.

It is a very old ship, and the Ship operations team were not customer service friendly. They are cost cutting to the point, where we do not plan to take them again, and we have about 130 cruise days with them over 5 years - Three Star Mariners.

Do check out the entertainment, and the EXC overviews for the ports. The EXC staff (Josh and Phil) were fantastic - very informative and helpful.
