There are definitely pros and cons of this large a ship. There are more dining and bar venues. But the wait at the elevators can be annoying. The first day you should make reservations at the speciality restaurants because the seating before 9:00 will fill up by the end of the first day.  Also the shows will all be booked by the second day.

The crew is very attentive and helpful. Everything was new and clean.

One thing annoyed the hell out of me. The website says you can bring wine aboard and pay a $15 fee per bottle. However if you do they treat you like a criminal.They rifle through you luggage to get the wine then leave a letter that says they have confiscated the illegal products. The instructions on how to get your wine are mostly inaccurate. We ended up getting the wine back the last night.

Because you pay for everything with your room key it is easy to lose track of how much you spent so the final bill can be a big surprise.
