Agreed the pool was not large enough to accommodate the volume of guests. The entertainment there was good.

You know how you look at the cruise line's photos of the ship and you've got giant pools that everyone in the photo is enjoying? Now realize that the pools seem to look bigger in the photos, and that there will be an absurdly large number of people at the pool. It's crowded, sometimes so crowded that pushing and shoving your way through the crowd to reach the pool just so that you can wet your feet because it's standing room only in there seems like more hassle than it's worth. But there's music (sometimes live music), and bars available (even though the lines at the Pool bars can sometimes be ridiculous due to the huge number of people on the pool deck). They also don't have the water slides open regularly. One of them was broken down, causing an excessive wait time at the one that was working, but even then they open and close the slides intermittently. You might wait 45 minutes and have them close on you before you get "your turn". Much of this isn't the fault of the staff, there's only so much that can be done when faced with the sheer numbers of passengers all trying to enjoy the pool area at the same time. But these factors did make the pool area far less enjoyable than I had expected it to be.

Need a better chair system. The Speedway and Laser Tag have taken away sundeck space. Constant fighting for chairs and people "holding" chairs with towels for hours while never using them.

Not enough room, either in the pool or around the pool. If you don't get to the pool early, very early, you're not going to get a lounge chair.

No bar service on top deck above pool area and "Jake" who served around pool rude and did not even acknowledge when we said Thank You. Chair seating horrible , so close together makes it difficult for any person of size to get into chairs

Very small area with 2 Pools. 1 is considered an adult pool but I can imagine a full ship of people trying to huddle around that small pool. The kids pool adjacent to the splash zone again very small and at capacity kids will be bumping into each other.

The main pool seems very small for so many guests however they are a lot of lounge chairs and bars!
