Personally, I am really looking forward to it (I disagree with Kuki). If you look at the size of the ship the number of passengers is not so unwieldly. At 5000 berths, it holds about 25% more passengers than Freedom, but is almost 1/2 again the size of Freedom.
And in all honesty, RCI is very family oriented, but so far I see this ship appealing to more young adults than families. It is likely to be pricier, and so far they have not revealed a lot of true kids-only types of features. I see above average income, but still young enough to be active/sports oriented, passengers.
I forsee the Voyager-class becoming more affordable once this is the new standard, and that will be where families with kids will go.
This will be a "stay onboard" kind of ship. Why go into Jamaica when you have all the activities you need onboard?
Oh, I totally plan on staying onboard in Nassau. No need to be there. With 3 sea days, and nassau, I will have plenty of time to explore. I am really looking forward to this ship. Thinking we are gonna go for my 39th b-day in January 2010. That which will be my last year of my 30's. lol.
