Generally you can board earlier than what guidelines tell you.

The special duty-free, discounted prices of items offered on-board were not so special or discounted at all.

Looking for a place to just kick back, hang out and have a great view? Go to the library.

You can go much earlier than the suggested boarding time and its recommended. People start lining up to check-in VERY early and it gives you a nice opportunity to explore whats on the boat before everyone gets on. Bring nice gala clothes - a lot of people dress up.

In Barcelona, book a Delta flight and use their transport to the airport. It makes disembarkation very easy!

The Library had a wonderful view , great mocha coffee, puzzles ,books. but if you wanted to get on the internet to go through your email. .. forget it. That did not work. No Air service.

Dine as you wish gives the flexibility we enjoy. Eat whenever, wherever we choose. Sometimes with large table, other times eat alone as a couple.

The chairs in the "Crows Nest" were the most comfortable. We also liked playing cards with friends to pass the time.

The age of this cruise is much older than expected but everyone was very nice and fun to be with. Try dine as you wish as you get to meet others from around the world.

If you are going to anything in the Vista Lounge, go early as a lot of the seating is taken up by large support poles that cut off the line of sight to the stage. If you come in late you will not be able to find seats from which you can see the stage.

Wait until after November 2017 to go on this ship. The ship will be out of dry dock then.

Balcony in 5053 was not as good of view as in other cabins since next room pushed out and you only had a one way view
