During the refurb, most of the public areas were updated in colors of black, beige, blue, and gold, with lighting installed that is stylish, as well as softer and more flattering to passengers.
There is a small casino near the Compass Rose with a few table games -- such as roulette and blackjack -- and slot machines, as well as a tidy library where you can borrow a wide array of authors and DVDs.
On the top deck is an indoor forward observation room known as the Yacht Club (formerly Constellation Lounge). It contains a Euro-style coffee bar that offers espresso, cappuccino, sandwiches and pastries -- at no extra charge. There are tall, curved, see-through bookcases filled with nautical art and books, as well as world maps to peruse. You can walk outside from there for a sweeping view, but there are no chairs outside.
The Signature Shop on Deck 6 stocks clothing and other goods from brands such as Gucci, Bulgari and Tommy Bahama.
The outdoor curved Star Bar (formerly the Sky Bar) on the top deck has new stools, lighting and an awning. Nearby tables and chairs were cleaned up and given new cushions.
A computer center is near the winding staircase atrium. If you've brought your smartphone or laptop, note that there is ship-wide Wi-Fi, but the connection is slow and the per-minute fee is steep (for example, $100 for 250 minutes). At that monetary ratio, forget Web surfing. You'll find that checking emails and uploading Facebook and Instagram photos can quickly eat up the allotment.
The elevators are small and the ship is not, as a whole, wheelchair-accessible.
