Additional details

Sail Date: Nov 2017

The ship itself is very nice. It looks and feels new.

The decor is almost entirely green and white with accents of gold and silver (mirrors). The overall effect is very feminine. I would have appreciated a bit less flamboyance, but of course individual taste always vary. The modern art on the walls is very strange for a cruise ship-subjects range from motherhood to murder. But again, of course, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

That said, the Leopard lounge was a bit more subdued than the rest of the vessel-though, oddly, the ship's pool is only accessed by going through the lounge. The glass surrounding the pool turns opaque when someone goes in, though you must wave your hand at a sensor every so often or else it begins to clear up again, presenting you in a "fishbowl" of sorts. No hot tub on board, though there was an adequate gym.
