What should I do on the first day of my cruise?

Here are some things you need to know about those moments just after you hop onboard.

  1. Head to the Windjammer Marketplace and enjoy a meal before heading to your stateroom.
  2. As soon as you enter your stateroom, you’ll find our Cruise Compass with schedules for all the onboard activities. And, if you’re a Crown & Anchor Society member, your benefits will already be loaded to your SeaPass card and ready to use!
  3. If you're traveling with family, pass by our Adventure Ocean area to register your kids in our fun, interactive, and age-appropriate activities. In addition to your Cruise Compass, you will receive a daily Adventure Ocean Kids Cruise Compass with specific youth program activities.
  4. Before departure, you must attend the mandatory pre-departure assembly muster drill to familiarize all guests and crew with the location (muster station) where they are to assemble in the unlikely event of an emergency.
  5. If the spa or fitness classes are your thing, we suggest making your appointments on the first day, as the most popular treatments and times fill up fast.
  6. Quench your thirst onboard with a beverage package. The ultimate in convenience and value, pay one set price and enjoy a vacation of endless refreshment.
  7. If specialty dining is more of your thing, check out our dining packages where you can experience several unique restaurants and enjoy great savings.
