The ship itself I have no qualms- but wait times for elevators was multiple minutes each time, travelling with an older person made it difficult and frustrating-

Wait time for the day cumulatively for the tender to shuttle was in excess of an hour- Unacceptable. The island was OK hard to enjoy with so many people
