Additional details

Sail Date: Oct 2018
Cabin: Balcony Stateroom

Too many people and not enought things to do. The theater is way too small for the 4500 people. At 45 minutes before an open show, all seats are taken. So you miss most of them. You can get seats at the pay for view shows, but who can pay the fees they want to collect for them. It seems that everything inside has an steep added fee. Just like the airlines are now doing. Indoors only three decks are accesable for people and each only half are available for roaming. Very little indoor places to sit and read, so they use the all the dinning rooms for reading room when not in use. Try sitting on them for awhile

Room service has a service charge of $7.95, so nobody are using it anymore, so the dining rooms are very crowded. The buffit dining room was geared for Asian and Spanish foods and was not the best grade of food. It was usually over cooked and dry. They used powered eggs, so don't order scrambled or omletts, only eggs over are real eggs

The ship is too big and does not have the amenities to handle them
