Crowded but lots of Options

Sail Date: August 2013
Destination: Bermuda
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)

There are things I like about this cruise ship, and there are items that I did not.

Good:

- Departing from NYC was amazing!

- Number of restaurants and, mostly, the quality of the specialty restaurant's food.

- Waterwalk. This is underappreciated. It was a nice place to hang out when not sunning.

- Paperless. No tickets for shows.

- Waterslides (e3ven for a 52 year old).

- Service (everyone was very nice, made an extra effort to call me by name).

- Disembarking, considering the number of passengers, was pretty good.

Bad:

- Much smaller scale than Epic (e.g. hallways are very skinny.h smaller scale than Epic (e.g. hallways are very skinny.
