I guess I don't understand why people complain about how big/small a ship is when they are able to research to see what the passenger/crew ratio is and how big the ship is.  With regards to the language barriers, I have found this to be on basically all cruise lines and I have been on 5 different cruise lines.  I know that the forum is to make ones comments about their experience, but a lot of what I have/am reading, is pretty petty, ijs.
