Enjoy breakfast/brunch at the Sapphire. You will get a meal and a show. Explore the ship as much as possible. Take the stairs, its easier than waiting for an elevator. Book your excursions as soon as possible. The ship will meet and beat any prices on items from the shore. Do a cash account instead.
If you drink a lot of soda, bring a case (4 people) along with water. You will have access to ice in your room or the Lido deck unless you have a fridge in your room, you can keep it in the fridge. If you do not use it up, you can leave it in your room.
Do not over pack...it will just weigh you down. They do have washing services available for a nominal fee or you can do it yourself. Bring quarters
If you do any excursions that may take all day, make sure to pack a lunch. My love does not eat ham and the lunch they provided was a ham and cheese sandwich with potato chips and a banana along with water. He made it a cheese sandwich and was ok but it was not enough. Bring lots of water.
Decide which way you want to pay for things on board and stick to a budget. For example, you can do a cash account but they will return whatever balance you may have in a check. If you use a debit card, they will place a 3 day hold so you need to make sure not to go over or it will cause issues.
Laminate your luggage tags and also make extra for other items such as flotation devices and snorkeling gear.
Bring a fan for your room if you like it very cold!
Make sure to take a power strip with you for all your electronic needs.
