It is on during the day but you need to wear head phones. The sound comes on for the afternoon film then is on all evening. They mainly show films but when we were on board we saw the England Football match. You get free pop corn in the evening shows and blankets. The staff are there with the drinks so you don't have to get up. Our state room was on the same deck as the TV but never heard it when we were in our state room unless you walked out on deck. You cannot sunbathe underneath it when it comes on as it is loud.

The ship was looking a little tired so its no great surprise she is having a refit. She entered service in April 2008 so definitely time to hav...
