I will start you off and many more tips will follow...all the drinks you buy will include a tip on the bill.

Buy travel insurance..your peace of mind is worth the small investment.

Check online to see the dress code suggestions.

Bring a power strip for all your electronics.

Gratuities for the staff such as your server and your cabin attendant are generally what is that is referring to. As Trip mentioned, when you goto the bar and order a drink (even a soda) there will be a 15% gratuity added to the charge.

Go to insuremytrip.com,and enter all the information pertinent to you, you will get a quote...and you can get side by side comparisons, so, you can determine the best coverage for you...Medical/medical evacuation is the most important,,trip interruption and baggage loss is also part of the coverage.

You will have to either comb thru the internet pages to find the dress suggestions, or, pick up an RCI brochure.

Hubby and I are leaving on our 8th cruise next Saturday (yea) and we have always felt very comfortable even sometimes over dressed in casual on board during the day. Casual meaning, shorts and T-Shirts for men and either shorts and shirt, skort and shirt for ladies. At night in the dining room, I would suggest Smart Casual. Meaning, nice pants and polo type shirt for men except on formal night and ladies, nice pants and shirt, or dress, here again, except for formal night. When on the ship, they realize you are on vacation and pretty much anything goes. It's just the dining room that I would recommend a little more dressy. Dark suit for men is perfectly fine for formal night and women something sparkly (cocktail dress) or long gown would be ok. I know alot of ladies we have sat with at dinner wear the dress they wore in one of their kids weddings... There is usually 2 formal nights on a 7 day cruise so plan accordingly. To wrap it up, I would say, pretty much anything would be ok during the day, just step it up a little at night.. Most important, HAVE A GREAT TIME!!!
