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.

Embarking was crazy unorganized.

No lounge chairs available for most of the cruise. Many people saved spaces but didn't use them. There was some policing of this, but not enough.

iTV (system on TV) didn't have all my reservations. So, I had to refer back to printouts I brought.

Considering the number of days at sea, the elevators were not sufficient. Less
