On the second cruise we will stay on the ship. Sorry I'm not more help on this one. I'm sure there are people that have been that can help answer that.
    When first go aboard the ship, does it take a while to get on with everyone boarding at the same time? How about leaving at the end of the cruise? Thanks for taking the time to ask the questions. I am really looking for info now, My DW is looking for those seasickness wristbands already, so I may be going sooner than I thought.

    When you arrive at the port you will get a boarding group number. You will then wait in line to check in. After that you are free to enjoy the cruise terminal until your number is called. Once boarding starts is goes fairly quickly. You will scan your key and then stop to have a picture taken, then it's on to the ship.

    Debarkation works a little differently. You will go to your assigned breakfast seating and then debark the ship once it has been cleared by customs. Debarkation is also quite quick. I highly recommend using a porter to help you locate your luggage and direct you through the line. It makes the process very smooth and is worth the gratuity.

    Keep the questions coming, I love answering them

    I love the idea that They give You breakfast before leaving the ship. I always picture them pushing You off the ship to get it ready for the next set of guest. LOL. Have You gone to the shows onboard the ship. Are You assigned a seat there as well? Do You have a few choices of what to do onboard at the same time, meaning a few shows to chose from? Thanks again for the answers.

    I have been to the shows. You do not have an assigned seat but if you are early dining you go to the second show if you are late dining you go to the first show. There is only one show nightly and on some sailings they offer a matinee of select shows.

    If You had an early lunch and are assigned a late dinner slot, can You get something to hold You over that is included in the cruise? Thanks.

    You can get food 24 hours a day somewhere on the ship. The counter service restaurants are open most of the day and evening and there is always room service. You will never go hungry
