Everything is a lot more crowded than you expect. You stand in line a lot. Lines for the buffet, lines for getting on and off the boat, lines for ELEVATOR, lines for any and all food or snacks. I would rather pay a bit more and travel with fewer people.

Kids are everywhere unsupervised. People let their children run around by themselves. You can't get near a hot tub or pool. Even in the adult only areas. Kids jump on the elevator without letting people off first. They jump in front of people in the food lines because no one has taught them any better. They crowd into games and events that they can't possibly compete in like Trivia or Name that Tune from the 70s.

Royal Carribean advertises their "private island" like you are going to have this relaxing day on Coco Cay. What they don't tell you is that there will another ship there as well. So you are sharing this private island with about 11,000 people. It's actually VERY crowded and hectic. You are not going to watch a sunset. You are going to watch the back of someone's head. Getting lunch is hectic, finding your chair and family is a challenge. No way to get near the pool unless you get there at sunrise. But to me the worst thing is charging almost $200 apiece for the water park. How many poor kids had to look at that all day, dying to go in, but couldn't? It's cruel to little kids to charge that much. R.C. knows parents have no choice but to pay it or ruin their child's vacation. On the positive side of that topic is that RC has streamlined some of the aspects of a cruise that people dislike: such as the safety drill at the beginning of the cruise. That's a much smother process now. And getting aboard on day one and leaving on the last day is easier.
