What has everyones experience been? Do you feel the waves more? More/less crowded? Not as many experiences on board?
We have steered clear of the floating bricks. We prefer ships with 2,500 or under capacity but have gone up to 3,000 capacity once and suffered no long term ill effects.
The biggest issue we have, as has been mentioned previously, is that the mega ships are floating amusement parks which attract too many screaming children for us. We work around that by booking longer voyages on lower capacity ships.
