Here are some photos of the new look in the Chart Room. I personally don't have a problem with it, but it did lose its Art Deco look with this new plush furniture. Many critics on the cruise forums are comparing it to QV and Princess' ships with "off the rack" furniture.
I believe the main reason for the redo was that the old room never had enough seats and was standing room only when a band was playing. The old room was also considered cold and "dusty" by some accounts that I have read.
What do you guys think?
