Review Summary

holds too many passengers for the size of its facilities. Everything seemed crowded. Couldn't walk anywhere without shoulder to shoulder crowds. The elevators were the worst. There were not nearly enough of them. We had wait times of 5-10 minutes each time we needed one. Also the elevators were only located fore and aft none midship so it was a long walk from almost all cabins to get anywhere.

Ship held too many people. The public places had a hard time accommodating everyone.

Cabin / Stateroom

Loved our steward. Cabin was somewhat smaller than other cabins I've had on various cruises. Didn't really like the layout. Cabin was kept very clean.
