Wonderful Service and Ship; Cruise Crowd not Always a Match

I would have given this review 5 stars if it were just based on the ship, service and quality - excellent! I am only giving 4 stars because there were often times where the cruise crowd ruined my experience, so I ...

First timers; we had fun with a couple of issues.

I'll put this first on the off chance celebrity will read it and fix it---There should be cocktail waiters at the pool and more bartenders at the pool bar! Very hard to get a drink! Too many people with 123 go ...
