Its a huge ship, much larger than the usual 2500 pax cruise ships we are used to. This particular sailing had 4500 plus passengers onboard and all the crew as well. My biggest issue was the queuing up for food almost everyday at breakfast and all lunch time. It felt so demeaning and strange. If you make a cruise ship so large then you must obviously make the eateries for bigger seating as well! Entertainment was decent, but we have seen much better in the Celebrity line.Swimming pool was so crowded that we completely missed to chance to enter. Loved the I-Fly experience we have pre booked online and the Flow rider. North star was ok. Bionic bar is different and a good one time must see. Loved the Virtual Balcony Interior room. made the room feel spacious enough to not experience any claustrophobia! Kids enjoyed the kids club, where in the kids are taken in first come first basis as they also brim upto capacity

Great big ship!
