Review summary

I will remember this cruise for a long time as I chose to pay extra to disembark from it! I feel that I spent my time waiting in line: - 2h line to drop the kids to the kids club (38 spots for 6-9 year old age group for a 5,000 people ship!) - 2h wait in the theater to disembark in Orlando for excursions as the door was broken - 1h to get on a tender to get to the Bahamas island, and 1h wait to get back Forget about dining in specialty restaurants if you haven't booked on Day 1 as everything is full My wife got the flu on the boat... Shared my feedback with the ship captain, Jamal, who said he agreed boat was over-crowded and they had issues, but apparently "it's always like that for the holidays!" Besides Casinos, there is not much to do on the boat, sea days are very long when it is to cold to go to the pool
