Sail Date: Nov 2022

We selected this cruise for a 50th-year reunion of college frat. Entry to the ship was very organized and quick as was exiting the ship at the end of the cruise, The problem was the cruise. They are not designed to handle 6,000 people on this ship. all of the venues are too small to handle the crowd. They have one main show at night but have 2 main dining sittings, Does management have enough brains that if you have two main sittings for diners you need two shows at different times to handle the passengers? No instead they have smaller events that you cannot get into even the bars are standing-room only, Forget about breakfast unless you want to walk around windjammer restaurant for an hour looking for a seat with a plate of food in your hand, Of course, you can eat in the 3-floor restaurant for breakfast and wait one hour to get your eggs. Central Park and the Boardwalk were very nice but lined with stores to sell your something, not venues to entertain you, The ship is not designed to entertain 6,000 guests. The pools were crowded but that was expected. Too bad as the ship's staff is very nice and will try and assist you, but they can do only so much when management failed to plan correctly when this ship was built.

This was the first RCL ship I sailed on but have been on NCL Carnival and Disney ships before with smaller ships and enjoyed them more, Maybe a smaller ship will be more enjoyable than a larger ship.
