And if you do.. STAY AWAY FROM MY CABIN!

Addition- Susanmaz said to bring your own Pepto- She is right on there. Even if its upset stomach due to the above mistake and you make a second mistake of going to the infirmary for some (or Imodium) you will be "confined" to your cabin for a couple of days "just in case" you have a virus. Even though you don't have all the symptoms, and even though you say "but I just ate the mexican buffet after 2 helpings at dinner" they will still quarantine you... save your vacation and bring your own meds...

Absolutely DO NOT believe what you read, check it out for yourself first. I read nothing but bad reports about the Ryndam and we had a great time without a stitch of problem. If you drink a lot of soda, DO get a soda card. It saved me quite a bit of money and actually 2 of us used it. DO wear sea sick patches even if you dont think you will be bothered if your ship does any swaying, better safe than sorry. DO enjoy yourself and you will be hooked after the first cruise. I have done 2 in 3 years and am already planning 2008. DO take an Alaska cruise. Its great.

One more thing, DO NOT use a debit card as your credit card for the ship. Two years ago when we sailed we met someone on our ship that could not use their debit card to purchase anything as the bank froze their account. If you do not have a major credit card to use, pay cash up front.

You won't have a problem as long as you notify your bank BEFORE you leave on your trip.

DO book your next cruise on the ship (your TA will "take it over" and get credit) and you'll often save money.

DON'T try to do every activity offered - remember, you're on vacation - take it easy!

DON'T rush to get to the dining room 15-20 minutes early if you have assigned seating. If your dining time is 8:00 pm, then arrive around 8:05, those who get there early end up standing outside the doors for 15-20 minutes, you have assigned seating your table and chair will be waiting on you when you get there. DON'T arrive 30 minutes late either it is not fair to your waiter.

DO smile when coming in contact with your crew members, remember a smile goes a long way. A bad attitude gets you less than desirable service, and you get back exactly what you put out there.

Do stand up before flushing!

Do take the stairs, if physically able.

Do not smoke in a no smoking zone.

DO be polite to the staff. They work long hours and are away from their families for extended periods of time. For many of them, this is the best way they can support their loved ones.
