Strange. That's not what it looks like in all those ads I get in the mail.
Oh yeah, the pictures of 8 very attractive people around the pool and 2 waiters with trays full of unclaimed Mai Tais.
The first day, I walked into the pool area and I think I actually glimpsed some water through the sea of humanity, most of whom were hovering around waiting for a chair to open up.
It's the gluttony that bothered me the most. In the dining room you can order anything and everything. People would order one of each entree just to try them all, leaving plates full of food everywhere. Thousands of people stuffing themselves day after day with minimal to no physical exertion.... It's not a boat so much as a big shiny poop factory.
Just my experience of course. I'm sure there are good times to be had!
