This was our first cruise and we would change up a few things. Paid for two drink packages. Didn't even get close to using the maximum. Waste of money Went on an excursion @ every port. Time wasted in " hurry and wait in line" I would only book a couple and definitely look check to see if the boat can dock or if you have to get transported in by boat. Don't book if you have to boat over!! Dinners: We were unaware of dining anytime... We had a 5:30 dining time and our off ship excursions took to long to be able to enjoy the dining rooms. Ended up eating in the buffet almost every night.... Not recommended. The excursions also took time away from on ship entertainment. Look before book excursion if there is something you would like to do or see on ship. We traveled on the Mid sized ship and still got turned around on occasion. The ship was clean and most of the servers were friendly. We had a few that seemed put out by helping you. Entertainment was good. Only one show had technical issue and stopped before it was over. Definitely take time to see at least a couple of those.
