Bring on the dramamine - Personally, neither of us had any problems with seasickness (although the boat rocking on the first night was a little trippy), but nothing could be worse than being sick while you’re stuck in the middle of the ocean. Bring a little stock just in case - better safe than sorry.
Don’t miss all the fun activities - We spent most nights in the night club dancing and hanging out with the few young people we met along the way, and it was easy to forget about all the other awesome activities going on each night. There are some super talented people providing entertainment on the cruise, so make sure to take time to go see them. Go see a comedian or take in one of the performances going on. There’s a whole itinerary for you to enjoy each day, so take advantage of it. But also make sure you give yourself time to enjoy the things you really want to see instead of rushing around trying to be part of everything.
Don’t be shy - Some of our favorite memories from the cruise were the people we met. Our favorite place to meet people? The 21 and over hot tub. Instead of being surrounded by families, you finally get some space to enjoy other adults.
And let’s be real...what’s better than enjoying the tropical weather, tasty drinks and some quality conversation in a hot tub overlooking the ocean? Instead of being awkward or keeping to yourself, talk with the people sitting next to you. We met people we ran into every other day on the cruise ship and who spent the whole trip joking around with us.
Explore the boat - There are all kinds of hidden gems around the boat-from the mini golf on the top deck to the 21+ deck/hot tub. Hit up the different bars (which offer different drinks and specials), join the line of kids and ride down the waterslide, then head to a comedy club or to the lounge for a performance. Also try the nightclub, piano bar and the room where there’s always karaoke.
Try an excursion at one of the ports - We picked one excursion to go on, which was perfect because booking a trip at both could get a little pricey. This gave us a break from the boat to do something fun, but also gave us time to explore the islands as well.
