lisa..when we were on Caribbean princess, the steakhouse was always booked, but was never crowded. Walk by and catch the maitre'd or reservation clerk and slip them a nice tip and they will take care of you. We did that once and had no problem making reservations for the other nights.

LISA8844, as tncruiseman says, try to plan what restaurant you want on what night before you go, then as soon as you board go by and make your revervation--don't wait until the night you want to go.

The mini-suite is the way to go if you plan to spend a fair amount of time in your cabin. To be honest, any balcony cabin is very comfortable for two; especially the ones on Caribe deck because they have larger balconies. But for longer cruises, or if you like to escape the hoopla on deck, the mini-suite is ideal; much larger balcony, sitting area with large sofa, much more closet and drawer space, and probably best of all, a larger bathroom with tub. No more having to get out of the shower if you drop the soap!

You didn't mention where you are going, but have a great trip.

Wish I could help but I know very little about the Caribbean. But if you post this under Caribbean Port Chat I'm sure you will get lots of responses.
