Very cool, Kuki. This gives you some perspective on design and comparison. We have been on Voyager and Explorer and loved them, especially the Promenade and Mardi Gras parades. We didn't feel crowded at all, but with Freedom and this new class I'm not so sure. There's also the point made about the ship's population being larger than most islands'. Try one of these on islands like Grand Cayman with 8 other ships in port for the day.
