slynn1967 -

here's some pointers -

1. pack very light - not a lot of space in your room - your room is very small!
2. Do not take a hairdryer unless you have an adapter - the Information Desk has hair dryers that you can check out and they are nice - you sign papers when picking it up and returning it.
3. The Rio is where we ate and it's buffet - that's what was available when we checked in - they give you a slip of paper - do not lose it - as that's your admission to whichever dining area you are assigned. The food was good and there is a lot of it.
4. The adult pool is very small and there is one small hot tub (4 people fit comfortably)

If there are more specific questions don't hesitate to ask and I'll be happy to answer.

I did not know restaurants were assigned. There are 4 on board, thought we could eat in any. I do know 1 you have to pay extra for.
How expensive are the drinks?
I am looking to getting away and enjoying the sun and relaxing.
thanks for the info

Regarding the drinks sometimes there are specials - but mostly the drinks were around $7-8 dollars and if you had the souviner glass you got a disc on your next drink. You might want to get the pineapple souviner drink holder and that was I think 8.75.

Restaurants - The Rio is buffett, The Crystal Room is the main dining room and then there was the Italian Trattoria (?) anyway they had pizza, and other Italian dishes which you could eat there if you wanted. But when we went they were assigning either Rio or Crystal and because we didn't get on until 3 p.m. we were assigned to the Rio. The food was good though and there was a wide selection. I really don't know where the 4th would have been

The italian place is open seating, and is open till 3am most nights. It is right next to Rio. The Crystal room is over by the Pub and casino. It is really nice. We got to eat there 2 nights on our 3 night cruise. But it does book quikly but we ate at the late sitting. The Cove, which is the "pay" one, is in an area within the Crystal room.

we were not on the ship long....one full day in Nassau. One short evening before, and then disembarking on Friday. So...the ship was nice really. The entertainment was fun. I don't remember the food much for some reason, but I think it was good LOL

The ship was VERRRRRRY ROCKY. Take non-drowsy Drammamine or Bonine (reg Dramamine will knock you out! LOL) and be prepared for movement. IF it will be getting rocky, the crew will line the rails along certain places with bags (you know...THOSE kinds of bags)

Other than that, have a wonderful time!

Oh, the floors aren't marked very well with the numbers. We would get out of the elevator and be looking all over for them. They're kind of hidden it seemed.
