He may shake his head, but this is the best way to keep him moving without crossing long distances, leaving you more readily available to help customers as they order.
Bonus 6 – 10
Bonus 6 – Heat Wave!
The sun is burning, and the customers are thirsty.
Focus your service on the slower customers. Slower customers will enter with red “!” marks over their head. When they order or wait to pay, their order bubbles will be filled with color that will gradually drain. Make sure to serve them before all the color drains from their bubble. Normal customers and table customers can wait.
Bonus 7 – Slow Down!
It’s one of those days where you just have to take it slow.
Everything will take more time to prepare today. Restock your cake immediately at the start of the day. Try keeping popular items, like cola, wine, and a serving of pasta on your tray to save time and stay ahead of the game.
Bonus 8 – Breathing Wild!
Stacey’s requests are tiring. Find any moment you can to take a break!
Isaac is exhausted. Don’t let him tire himself out today! Any action – whether walking or preparing a dish – will take up his energy. The lower his energy, the slower he’ll move. Today is all about balance. Try pacing yourself and serving customers in paced groups. Take a break every few seconds. In the long run, it’ll make you faster.
Bonus 9 – Too Darn Ripe
The sun is burning and it’s affecting all organic products.
Deliver items before they go bad. You have approximately 7 seconds from the time you pick up the product to the time it spoils. Fruit bowls and drinks will both go bad. Photos and hats will not. If the item starts to go bad, it will begin blinking on your tray. At that moment you will only have 1-2 seconds left. Quickly deliver it or remove it from your tray before it spoils! The best tactic to use today is to keep an eye out for orders with drinks and fruit bowls. Serve them separately if need be. Remember you only have a handful of seconds.
Bonus 10 – Tip, Please!
To earn your pay by tips alone is hard, but Isaac is determined to dazzle every customer with his skills!
Only tips count toward your score today. Serve full orders and quick orders to earn tips from individual customers. Check multiple customers out at the same time at the cash register to earn combo bonuses.
Bonus 11 – 15
Bonus 11 – On the Double
Everybody loves Isaac’s food and drinks. They just can’t get enough of them!
Table customers will be placing 2 orders in a row every time today. After serving a table’s first order, the table will eat, then request the second. Bring them their order, keeping in mind that you’ll need to be quick. Any previous hearts they lost will not replenish the second time around.
Bonus 12 – Order Diversity
Isaac wants to try a new serving technique. Let’s see if it pays off!
Alternate completing orders between seated and standing customers. This challenge is particularly tricky – you’ll need to keep close track of which customer you served last: table or counter. If you start with a counter customer, you’ll need to serve a table next, followed by another counter customer. If there’s not another counter customer (or table if you did it the opposite way), you’ll have to wait for one to show up, or else you’ll fail today’s challenge. If you find yourself with, for example – two counter customers by the end of the day and no more tables, you’ll need to let one leave angry to complete the challenge.
Tip! Circle the next customer you need to serve with your cursor, or hover the cursor over them. This will help you keep mental track of which customer type you’re currently serving: standing or sitting.
Bonus 13 – Bad Memory
Isaac is tired and not quite himself today. He’s having a hard time keeping up with all the customers’ orders.
Today’s challenge is to remember your customers’ orders. A handful of seconds after a customer orders, the orders above their head will be replaced with “?” marks. Quickly memorize the order and make it before you forget what it is! It’s best to not worry too much about combos, instead making sure you serve the correct orders in a timely manner.
Bonus 14 – Over and Out
It was a great party! But now Doc has his hands full with a lot of hungover patients…
All the patients who enter the clinic today are hungover and start with 3 hearts. The only way to increase their mood is to serve them their complete order quickly! Best not to keep them waiting at the register today, either. In and out!
Bonus 15 – Who’ll Cure the Doctor?
Doc doesn’t feel that well today, his arms are weak and heavy. He’s only able to carry one item at a time.
Doc can only carry 1 item at a time today! That means no full order combos and no keeping extra items on your tray. If you accidentally put the wrong item on your tray, click on it to remove it. For patients who require multiple items, you’ll need to bring the items to them in multiple trips.
Bonus 16 – 20
Bonus 16 – Ahoi! Mousies
Carl’s family on board! Can you find them all?
There’s so many mice aboard the ship, and you must catch them all! Catch 30 mice before the end of the day. Keep an eye out for their cute whiskers and listen for the telltale squeak. Mice will pop up in random locations. For an overview of some places where mice can appear today, visit the Mouse Locations section.
Bonus 17 – No Repeats!
Variety is a barista’s best friend.
Don’t make the same product twice in a row today. If multiple of the same item is ordered, first pick up another item, followed by the one you need. We recommend one of the sunglasses beneath the counter, provided the item you need isn’t the same as them. The less preparation necessary, the better!
Bonus 18 – Sick and Tired
There’s a nasty flu circling around the cruise! It’s best to treat those first and stop it from spreading!
Treat the flu-ridden patients first. Patients entering the ward with the flu will have a red “!” mark over their head. Upon entering, focus all your attention on them! Serve them first before helping any other patients.
Bonus 19 – When the Doctor’s Ill
The sickness from before seems to have caught Doc now as well. But he can’t take a day off and he can’t work fast.
Doc’s feeling a bit under the weather. He’s got to take it slow. Today is just like any other day, only Doc will move and prepare items just a bit slower. Treat it like any other day and you’ll complete this challenge with ease.
Bonus 20 – Time’s Ticking
Doc is back in action! He’s got no time to waste, either. No time to stand around!
Don’t stand still for more than 8 seconds! It’s important to keep moving today. The easiest way to keep Doc on his feet is to alternate clicking between the cash register, and the restock box for the pill bottle. This way he’ll move back and forth without you needing to remove any items from your tray, and allowing you to easily go elsewhere if helping a patient.
Bonus 21 – 25
Bonus 21 – Cash Out
The cash register keeps jamming! And the tune isn’t all that pleasant I’ll say!
Unjam the cash register to check out customers! A “!” bubble will appear over the cash register each time it’s jammed. You’ll need to click on it and give Isaac a little time to restore it to working order. There’s a meter in the upper right corner that will keep track of how long it will take for Isaac to unjam the register, as well as how soon the register will jam again. You’ll need to unjam the register repeatedly throughout the day to check out customers.
Bonus 22 – Up and Downs
That special serving technique seems to have paid off the last time around. Now that we’re in a new place, time to try it again!
Alternate between serving standing and sitting customers. This challenge is exactly like Bonus 12. Don’t serve the same type of customer – sitting or standing – back-to-back. Instead, alternate. If you’re waiting on a sitting or standing customer, keep waiting! If you serve the same type twice in a row, you won’t complete today’s challenge.
Bonus 23 – Just the Tip
Management wishes to see how effective Isaac’s work is. They’ll only count bonus tips from customers, so make sure you have enough!
Only bonus tips count today! Serve quick orders, full orders, and check out customers in groups to earn tips and bonuses. You can also choose to upgrade the restaurant at the start of the day to help give you an extra advantage.
Bonus 24 – Forget Me Not
It’s one of those days, when your customers are so relaxed they themselves can’t remember what they ordered.
Customers can’t remember their own orders! Shortly after ordering today, any items a customer asks for will be replaced by a “?” icon. Serve orders quickly to avoid challenging your memory too much! When in doubt, leave one “?” customer and focus on serving the others. Today is not an easy day to play catch-up if you fall behind.
Tip! Restock all items at the start of the day to give yourself an extra advantage!
Bonus 25 – Flight Path
That smug seagull is back at it, flying around like he owns the place! He doesn’t even look where he’s going!
Avoid the seagull or you’ll drop your tray! A rogue seagull is flying around the restaurant today. If he collides with you, you’ll drop everything on your tray. A collision with the seagull also means Isaac will stop whatever he was doing and wherever he was going, so keep on top of your tasks to pick back up easily. The seagull’s flight path is somewhat random, so be ready for the unwanted encounter at least once or twice today.
Bonus 26 – 30
Bonus 26 – Fragile Equipment!
Someone seems unable to keep proper inventory and left a bad tray around. What foul luck you had to take one!
Play with a breaking tray. Throughout the day, your tray will steadily break and become smaller in size. Make sure you serve full orders at the start of the day, because you won’t be able to earn this combo type by the time the end of your shift is near. Be ready to make multiple trips the later it gets in the day.
Bonus 27 – Wedding Festivities!
The party is still going on, lovebirds or not.
Serve all the customers and don’t let anybody leave angry. Today’s challenge is all about management. Focus on one table at a time. Serve a full order, then follow through with the next order. If you notice a particular item that takes extra time to prepare is popular, try keeping an extra portion on your tray to serve time.
Bonus 28 – Supply and Demand
The crew seems to be hoarding all the magazines. Be careful not to run out of them!
Don’t run out of magazines today. Newspapers also count toward today’s challenge. To make things more difficult, crew members will show up and remove all the magazines from the rack. Keep an eye out for them and whenever you see a 0 in the bottom right corner, quickly click on the restock drawer on the left to replenish your stock of newspapers or magazines.
Tip! Restock the magazines at the start of the day to give yourself an edge!
Bonus 29 – Gopher in Trouble!
Some people pack too much for a cruise. Help out Gopher with the heavy ones.
Help Gopher with the luggage. Every time Gopher needs help, he’ll stand at the base of the stairs and a “!” bubble will appear over his head. Click on Gopher to help him with the luggage. Keep in mind this will keep Julie busy for several seconds. It’s best you check out any customers waiting at the cash register before helping Gopher.
Bonus 30 – Boss on Deck!
Don’t waste any products or have any extra, do not overspill a glass, bring only full orders, and make sure all your customers are ecstatic!
Play the perfect game! Keep items in stock and make sure every customer leaves happy. Remember! Full orders, quick bonuses, and combo checkouts will all help you with your score. Don’t forget you can also upgrade the Lobby to help your day go just a bit easier.
Congratulations! You’ve completed all the Bonus Levels!
