And that doesn't answer the question: "Then what prompted that delayed outburst when you'd already replied?"

My posts are about the ships.
I do not post personal remarks. It does not make sense and it is forbidden by CC guidelines.
Therefore I don't aswer personal remarks especially made in rude and disrespectful manner.
Sorry.

I didn't make that claim.

I think MSC added something new to the industry. I have not been on their largest ships however I was impressed by the size of bars/lounges of Poesia. When you have spaces like this it is easier to provide smaller scale entertainment for larger number of people.

No. It does have a wraparound jogging track though. But that's not the same thing.

Your post replying to the other poster that "this ship does not exist" when it did, was said in that manner.

It seemed odd that after replying you needed to reply again some time later solely to be apparently disrespectful.

The Allure of the Seas does have a wrap-around promenade.
Call it jogging track or whatever. It's not exactly what the Freedom class has.
It's not as luxurious as Cunard or HAL promenades.
Nevertheless it's a promenade deck.
It's located where promenade decks should be, it looks like promenade deck and it is used as promenade deck.

No. It looks like a jogging track. And has lots of walls. There's very little space for seats and very few of them.

Even your picture above shows how inadequate it is. Can you imagine sitting in one of those? You couldn't even sit properly in one!

Squeezed into the rail, your legs either bent or squeezed through the rails and being bumped by the traffic behind you?!

Not really. It's used as a jogging track.
