First Day On Board - Must Do's and Should Do's


Recommended Posts

What are your first day on board must and should do's? 

I will start it off....Grab your free crown and anchor charm.  

(Not talking about standard stuff like Muster Drill, Check-in, yada yada...)

Bonus Question: Is the free stuff like the "Vacation Starter Pack" worth the time?  Is there some sort of presentation you have to sit through like a time share presentation type deal?

This should be #1 for everyone (including getting an NA drink for those who don't drink alcohol)

Think I might try this. As non-drinkers, on our last cruise we didn't manage to use up all our D vouchers, so are going to have to try harder this time round!

I don't drink alcohol at all, and this is my first mission!

We also tried the hot tub when we first got on this last trip, and it was a great filler between embarking and rooms being ready

Get food after that drink?

(I can't be the only one in a hurry to gain 10 lbs. on a cruise).

I'm more likely to hit the gym so that I can eat as much as I like without having to worry about the weight gain! Can you say two desserts in the WJ at lunch and another two in the MDR at dinner? 😆

What is this GYM you speak of?

I go on a diet for about 4 weeks before ever 7-night cruise and then gain it all back in those 8 days.

Two desserts? Pssh... I have early sit down dinner with family in MDR/CK/wherever and then have my 2nd dinner later in the WJ! 😋

I'm maybe an over planner, so I already have a list of boring stuff to do when I get on. We booked a package through Costco that included a free specialty dinner and a free spa experience, so we want to run to Wonderland and the spa to make those reservations. We also have a question about an excursion we booked and the reps on the phone haven't been a huge help so we want to stop by the excursion desk before it gets busy and get everything straightened out. I think we also want to make sure the correct credit card is linked to our SeaPass so we might want to stop by guest services before that gets too busy as well. We're sailing out of Seattle on the Quantum so we would also love to run to the top deck and get on that before there is a line because we might get a nice view of the city. Maybe after all of that we can finally sit back and get lunch. Hopefully while we're upstairs the Solarium Bistro will be open. And of course reserve other North Star times, a Rip Cord time, and show reservations on the app.
