What can we tell from this?

Customers seem really happy about the variety of sea life at the aquarium. They frequently talk about the variety of species of sharks and fish and this increases the rating the customers give the facility. 

Visitors seem to think the facility is overpriced. Many customers mention the admission fee and this drives down the average rating. Another factor driving a more negative rating is the number of people in the facility. Could there be periods where peoples’ experience is limited by overcrowding?

However, it is worth mentioning that the complaints are not increasing, indicating that the it is not a growing problem. L’Aquarium is great for children and families. Many reviews concern children and this is a positive driving force in customer satisfaction.
