The ship itself was not the problem. It was the number of people crammed on to the ship that made it less than ideal. There were long waits for buffet lines at lunch and breakfast. This was tough with four kids! The dinner service was painstakingly were lucky if you got a drink and a roll. The food was not very good.
The common areas were so room in the pool. The little kids could not go on the kiddie slides because teenagers were taking them over. Of course\, the teens also were too crowded in the pool so they needed somewhere to go!
