Big might not be better

Sail Date: February 02, 2014

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Pros- Big ship with many things to do and all the old standards.  The ship is clean and well kept by a responsive housekeeping staff.  No waiting in the buffet line.  Sit down meals are best in the specialty restaurants.  Main diningroom uses the same menu daily with changes to the specials.  Rooms had more than adequate storage.  Leaving the ship was smoothly and efficiently.

Cons- Too many people on the ship, at the venues, in the casino, on the decks, at the activities, etc.  Especially vexing were the elevators- long waits for people who could not climb the stairs and crowded once they stopped at a floor.  This is a problem that is structural and will not be solved by anyones comments.

The ports of call for this voyage were dismall but the ship will reposition in Europe and have better destinations there.

Bon Voyage- Pat
