They traveled in packs about the ship and took up a lot of 'space'. The library was closed to us for the whole week. Dining times were changed to accommodate them (or 8pm time became 8h30 and 9 on gala nights). Show times were changed to accommodate them. Outdoor movies at night movies were canceled for the whole week. Private parties were held which closed off lots of 'public' space. One day I got kicked off playing ping pong because they had to get ready for a party.
This group has booked again for 2012. The dates are March 3rd - 10th, 2012
I'm not saying you shouldn't book these dates but at least you should know there will be a gang of spandex yoga people who seemed to think they own the ship.
Personally, I've booked an alternative cruise for these dates even though I would have preferred to stay with MSC.
