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!

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.

It is well worth it to travel as a Neptune suite guest or higher. Great perks and lovely staff concierge Hector and Irwina.

The pool and hot tubs are best used earlier in the morning before people are up and about. There are two pools, one amidships with a retractable cover and one at the rear, each with lounges for relaxing and sunning. Each pool has adjacent hot tubs.

Don't. The ship is old and it broke down. The tiles in the Lido had gray stuff oozing up through the cracks, and the floors were constantly wet. Verandah rooms have regular hinged doors (as opposed to sliding glass doors) that folks are constantly slamming.
