What worries me is that often when it's bad weather and every one has to remain inside it 's next to impossible to find any seating.

We've never found this so on Ventura, Gemma, because there's so much happening all day. The theatre has one or two new films a day-even 3 on the extra sea day, plus lectures are in there; then there's all the craft, dance, choir classes as well as sports. We go to the Sunday services, also in the theatre, and saw some great films which we'd have to do a round trip of 70 miles to see at home. The indoor pool is a must for us, and there's plenty of seating around, where many bring their meals from the buffet. No, I never noticed any lack of seating, just a lot of very busy people!

I have always found the large ships are less crowded than small ones. :mrgreen:

In my experience, all those (alleged) seminars are just sales pitches for Spa Products, and don't constitute an 'activity'. :evil:

No films? No lectures? No choir?
No, I'd not be a happy bunny with that lot for a sea day....
Perhaps you missed out the film?

We did Ventura to the Caribbean and loved the ship we found there was plenty room and loved the evening entertainment on there,
we were in different ports most days to didn't spend much time on her during the day.
