    If you did not book prior to sailing on the cruise planner and would like to book spontaneously during sailing i recommend what i did below:
    you can save some money by hunting down those specialty dining salesmen that walks around the windjammer asking people if they're interested in buying. Most of the time they find you when you don't want them to but in your case you'll have to look for them.
    I saved more money going through those "salesmen" that actually going directly to the restaurant itself because they kind of 'negotiate' pricing and are able to lower the price or even increase the incentive of booking through them.

    What me and my S/O found romantic was pigging out with some delicious tropical alcohol beverages on our stateroom. (with a ocean balcony view)
    Both marinating in the hot tub until we're raisins at 2:00am (Very peaceful and no one else is awake)
    Gambling side by side on tables in the casino.

    I assumed the key came with a fast pass system to save time in waiting lines for flowrider/rock climbing/abyss slide/water slide. BUT it does not which would have made it worth it.
    You still have to line up and all the other benefits seemed almost useless/unnecessary personally to us.

    Snack Shack's Chicken Sandwich with all the fixins  with side of fries. I do not know how they make it so crispy outside and so fluffy inside.

    That's actually really smart lol.
    I saw people riding up with all their luggage and was wondering where they were going since the buffet is on the other side of the ship.
    Now I finally realize these were pros.

    TJ! got a reaction from ChrisK2793 in Wonderland on Harmony .....   
    I tried wonderland last week, just got back from my sailing so it's still fresh with me.
    To be completely honest you're going for the experience and getting out of your comfort zone during your vacation.
    The service was great, along with the entertainment staff and atmosphere. (Great for pictures)
    BUT the food was a bit odd for me and I eat just about anything.
    Most of our food was also lukewarm which seems to be the pattern here. I had a view of their open kitchen and the lukewarm food could be due to the cause of the time spend staging the plate for presentation.
    the dessert with the chocolate molded like mushroom was delicious along with the melting caramel ball peanut butter ice cream.
    It's a toss up and I would definitely go again if we had a great deal or it was free haha.
    The wonderland themed alcohol looked great but tasted awful in my opinion. I started ordering alcohol I was comfortable with after the first experimentation of wonderland beverages.

    TJ! got a reaction from Ogilthorpe in Almost ready for our cruise, what am I missing?   
    I set an alarm with a note to turn phone on airplane mode before ship sailed.
    (that way I was able to still take pictures and make calls 1 last time before we sailed off)
    Bring water shoes they were a game changer for me. They're fairly affordable, I went with a brand called aleader on amazon.
    Take note of the time of when the casino closes daily. They always close when heading closer to land due to the laws.
    Example: I was playing roulette and was betting strictly on colors, it hit 7 consecutive black colors and I was going to bet red the next spin but they ended up closing the casino and I lost the chase for hitting a red.
    Put on the cruise luggage tags after you've arrived at the cruise terminal to avoid confusion with airport luggage tags.

    TJ! reacted to Traveler in Casino Point/Reward System?   
    This is one of the top secrets of RC , no one know how it works (some times I am not sure even the casino people know).
    All I can tell you is that since they do not track it automatically it is always better that the pit boss will know you, see how much time you spent and most important your average bet ... (they count the money you rolled on the table during the play not how much you lost). One tip which I am not sure how it is relevant to Roulette (as they have only one table) -always play on a table which has a minimum bet which equal to your minimum bet. If you are playing minimum 50 $ on a table with minimum of 5 $ and they have not updated your average play in the system you will be registered playing 5 $ average ...
