Awesome cruise, would highly recommend it. No Regrets. Some recommendations: 1. Ladies bring an extra dressy sweater or shawl/wrap to wear in the dinning room, I brought only summer fancy dresses and had to buy wraps to keep warm during dinner. 2. Bring an insulated water bottle to take with you to the pool deck. Grab some juice or water from the WindJammer Cafe for free and fill the bottle, then take it to the pool... there is only expensive drinking otherwise. 3. Book the later sitting of dinner.... or else you'll miss all the sunsets!!! And ask if you can sit on the main floor (deck 3) for the dinners, much better views. 4. Make reservations for the Portofino restaurant on the first or second day (the fancy restaurant) if you want to eat there any time during the week, it fills up fast. 5. Tip for keeping the eating to a manageable rate... when you get to the Windjammer cafe, you'll notice they use "platters", not plates. Fill half of your "platter" with salad every meal and it will help you to portion properly. 6. Must go to Magen's Bay in St. Thomas, definitely not to miss.... the most beautiful beach we've ever been to. 7. Don't waste your time at the "Discover Shopping" seminars given by shopping shelby on the ship... its really boring, and she says she gives away free gifts to the first 100 people, but what she really gives is a certificate that you have to go and find the store to pick up your 0.50$ earrings cheap. Don't be fooled by all the Jewelry stores. If you really want something, just buy it in St. Thomas... but don't waste your time window shopping unless you are looking for something specific. If you think that the "royal caribbean approved stores" are the only place to shop, think twice. In order to get approved, the store pays the ship to give a good recommendation... so basically Royal Caribbean approves the store if the store pays Royal Caribbean a fee.... :( (for example, Tiffany's and Coach are NOT recommended stores in St. Thomas, but we all know these are quality stores, they just aren't dumb enough to pay the advertising fee) 8. They say you can't save chairs/loungers at the poolside decks, but everyone does anyway, so on an "at sea day" go to the deck at around 8AM, throw a towel and book on a few chairs, and you've got your seat set for the day. But Really it was a most awesome trip.... don't MISS THIS ONE!!! :)
