My bathroom sink kept filling up and I called and reported it the first day. it was never fixed so the next day I had to go downstairs to guest services and request (again) for it to be fixed. That was GROSS.
The daytime activities were very poor unless you were sitting by the pool but you cant get a spot by the pool unless you get there at 8 am! And 3 VERY small pools would never be enough for 3000 passengers so that needs to be remedied.
That said\, food and night time activities especially the comedy club and piano bar were tonnes of fun!
