Our experience in 2005. Cunard Queen Mary has a large ballroom and a small disco next door. In ballroom as soon as music starts male dance escorts ask single ladies up to dance. this encourages people to take to the floor. We found the band could have been livelier. (We are lucky to be fitter than most of the guests and dance a lot).. Royal Caribbean, Legend of the Seas, dance floor was a good size not keen on the music. We danced mainly in the Atrium not really suitable but most of the dancing guests enjoyed the music there..2008 Sea Princess, (2nd visit) 3 areas to dance. We danced every evening in the Atrium (small area) and in the Wheelhouse bar, floor was bigger. The music was great. But take note to us the music makes it. no gaurantee if we revisited we would have the same experience.. 2008 Arcadia small floor. Dance instructors ruled the evening, that's alright if you need to be told next dance is a Waltz, Rhumba No 2 etc. On top of ship Horizon has dance floor. We find not many people dance unless it is disco...not our scene. We just take to the floor and enjoy ourselves. You may be lucky and have other guest that like to dance and will get up on the floor. For ballroom floor and dancing guests, I think Cunard wins. Isobel.
