7. Skip the extra cost restaurants!

The main dining room has lots of great food on menu. No need to pay $30 more for a meal.

Do not over pack! The ship is kept spotlessly clean, clothes do not get dirty.
The days of formal dress nights are disappearing.

Do not over-eat. It is easy to do because there is so much free food available. Be sure to pack Tums.
Do lot of walking, which burns up extra calories and then you can eat some more haha.

Coffee & Tea is free, but pop and booze are extra cost. Booze prices have gone up.

Do not miss the evening shows. Get to the theater 20-30 minutes before show time to get better seats.

5-7 day cruises are the best vacation value around. We have done around 30, we started going before kids came, took kids when they were 5 and 3 years old and they always had a great time and only time we saw them was at meals during the whole day.
