Nice ship, but too big

Sail Date: March 04, 2016

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

Beautiful ship, attentive crew.  Loved the spa and spa crew.  Was disappointed with the shopping, however.  Too many high end stores, and no standard souvenier or clothing shops.  Not enough crew members on board either.

Cabin / Stateroom
Very nice, very clean and spacious. Our attendant, Ronaldo, was EXCELLENT! Great service!
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Took too long from the time you gather in your section for emergency orientation upon embarking. we are made to wait well over 45 minutes before presentation begins.
Ship Quality
Very nice and very clean.
Destinations and Excursions
No destination for comment.
Onboard Activities
Again, mostly sold out. Was unable to participate and disappointed that they do not accommodate all guests for all rides...
Children's Programs
Lines are too long. Bumper cars are great but when you have to wait 1 1/2 hrs for a 2 minute ride, it's not worth it. yet it is the ride the kids want.
Most activities were sold out when we arrived. it is ridiculous that the ship does not accommodate every guest for offered activities. Bottom line, i was unable to participate in any of the entertainment other than shows.
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
Food was very good except for the morning eggs. Hated the powdered eggs. They were runny, mushy and tasted awful! Most foods were very good, however.
