Here! Here! I realized after our 3day Dream cruise it was just as much work to prepare for a 3 as a 7. Won't make that mistake again.

Try new foods and don't be afraid to order more than one thing if you want. Relax and have a great cruise.
THIS! I'm just going to keep rebooking every cruise until DH catches on to my scheme. He can't turn down a good "deal."

Keep walking further on CC - just keep walking to the end of the family beach and you will get the best spots.

Pee everywhere! - no seriously, use the bathrooms everywhere on the ship! So much fun to see the different themes!
Love your suggestions! I marked quite a few as things we need to do on our next one. Agree with all of the above. Thought I was the only one checking out the different bathrooms. Too funny! Dh thought I was preggers again I was peeing so much! :-)

Yes. This is our absolutely favorite vacation swag.

We loved doing this! Found this suggestion on the boards before our trip and DH was hooked the first night. So yummy!

I'd also recommend bringing a highlighter to mark up the Navigator. Bring a bottle or some sort of mug for the drink station.

You need small bills to tip room service, porters, etc.

Pack ziplock bags of varying sizes. I thought this was just silly and I did it this time around and I can't believe how useful this was. Our DD is 16 mths so this may have something to do with it.
