Very large and crowded, lines every where. Mechanical problems that need to be addressed prior to one customer setting foot aboard. The board of directors and CEO must be really proud. Ship was clean but had a layout difficult to get used too. Serinity deck had too much foot traffic and an escence of sewer at times.
