If you check out the deck plans of Voyager Class to Freedom class ships, logistically there is very little difference in size of the WJ, Royal Prom, ice rink etc., but they have to cater for vastly increased passenger numbers. I have been on 5 Voyager Class cruises, Navigator & Mariner and never queued once for ice show tickets, never needed to get to the theatre early, never had problems finding a table in the WJ..........Need I say more..........Wilba

Thank you for that Malcolm, we are booked on our first RC cruise after 12yrs of using other cruise lines. It is useful to have that confidence before we set sail.#Keep up the good work!!
