We pre-book any must have excursions, plan to be at dinner in the dining room then leave the rest to whatever we want to do at the time. We always book a balcony and that’s where you’ll most often find us. Must have seen a couple of hundred flying fish by now and 3 dolphins. No sharks yet.
In port we enjoy finding a taxi or bus for a quick tour of any port we have not visited before but mostly like to wonder around freely and shop.
I like to hit the port and shopping presentations to make sure I know enough to not miss anything but after that, whatever we decide to do. Often we don’t even go to the production shows in the evenings. Just depend on what we find interesting.
