Yes, there were several problems on the Mayflower. The ship was overcrowded with around 102 passengers, leading to unsanitary conditions and limited space. There were also storms that damaged the ship, causing leaks and making the journey more difficult. Additionally, there was tension and disagreement among the passengers, which resulted in the formulation of the Mayflower Compact to establish order and unity.
