Since you weren't real specific I will try to give a few hints that I do. I can't comment on that particular ship as we haven't sailed her. The ship publishes a newsletter daily and it is a great source of shipboard activities. Read it and see if there is something that catches your interest. Try to not plan to do too much. There won't be enough time to do it all. There can be a lot of savings by booking your own excursions. The downside to this is the cruise line won't accommodate you if you are late and are not on a cruise line excursion. You need to see what the cancellation policy is if the ship is late or doesn't make the port call. We try and not let the small imperfections of the ship, service, food, fellow passengers etc. detract from your enjoyment of the cruise experience. I could go on, but I am sure others will have there own advice to add. One more thing I just have to add, we enjoy dressing "formally" on "formal night". It adds to the make believe atmosphere we create onboard our cruises.
