Born in Calif I've never seen the Eastern seaboard to its fullest and thought this would be a great way to see the fall colors. We were about a week too late weather wise (our problem) but really when you can't use the outdoor areas (pool or walking areas) where you to put 3500 plus passengers? TOO MANY PEOPLE! Ironically, it wasn't a problem when we had to tender (not sure why) nor a problem in leaving or returning to the ship. But God forbid you had their Any Time Dining and wanted to eat around 6:30pm. They give you a buzzer like they do in restaurants. We actually got that eventually dialed in (You can actually make reservations, but you can't get through to the reservation desk - only to find out when you finally do get through they don't take reservations between 5:30pm and 7:30pm it is first come first serve. So we figured that out, but I fully believe this type of dining leaves you with waitstaff that are not engaged with you or invested in your experience...Not the best but most nights not awful. Just need to find another way for us. Plus with that many people, there are not enough public rooms to put people. Too many staterooms, not enough public gathering space.

A nice vacation but unfortunately just TOO BIG!
