One of the issues with our ship was having only one pool and as a result the intoxicated college gang took over that area. Next time I will definitely find one with an extra pool.
The ship should offer at least one more complimentary dining option as you will find that you will have to pay to dine at one of the other fee based restaurants to get away from eating the same food night after night.
The other complaint was the port that required you to be tendered to shore was poorly organized and took forever to get to island.
