Default New Ships.

Now that Reflection is almost here and the fact that it takes a few years to launch a new ship, are there any plans for a new class or any new ships. Thank you and good luck in your new position.

One of the things I would like to see is a promenade deck. If you do decide to add to the current fleet, will you ensure that the new ships include a promenade deck, something, which in my opinion, and this is possibly the old romantic in me, enhances the cruising experience.

Best of luck in your new role.

I love walking a promenade deck. Holland has wraparound promenade decks and we enjoyed walking there in the morning and after dinner.

We second both of the above.
The lack of a usable promenade deck on our recent Equinox voyage was a great disappoinment, even though we had a cabin with wonderful large windows.
