I think it is a visual mess.. The overhang above the dining room is extremely ugly.
I wonder if the ducktail did the same with the stern..
The facilities added are great though, but the ships are not getting any prettier for it. (The R class ships are spoiled externally due to the awkward way the spa windows are placed above the bridge, eventhough the views from inside are great)
Maybe it is just this angle, but it does look a bit awkward. Maybe the dining room should be extended to meet the overhang on the future S.O.E. refits? Reminds me a little of the Norway (ex France) after they put those extra decks on top of her in 1990.
I still want to sail on her though. The rest of the improvements look great, especially the Lanai cabins. What a difference from a basic outside cabin!
I’m very disappointed. First of all the nice pool area on the veranda deck disappeared and secondly the once very nice vessel became quite tail heavy, and therefore very ugly.
Are there any balcony details available of the new ducktail? I booked one of those staterooms with a upcoming cruise…
The retreat pool looks pretty amazing. The ship has much more of a resort feel to it now. There is still the lido pool for those who want to swim. Seeing the SOE results really makes me want to book a cruise on this ship.
