There is a tiny dance floor in the bar where one can do spot dances like swing, cha cha, rumba, etc. The piano player does decent music for dancing. Not enough room for a proper waltz or foxtrot, but if no one else is on the floor, one can improvise, if you dance in a circle instead of in a straight line. The space in Panorama is about the same size; there was music there less frequently on our cruises.
There is sometimes dancing during the welcome and farewell reception and then you can use the main stage of the show lounge. If that's the case, there is room for proper smooth dancing. On occasion, they've had some fancy decorative displays on the stage during those events, so then there was no room.
Usually there's one night where there's dancing out on deck after the deck barbecue dinner. They usually play good music for swing, cha cha, hustle, etc, and the deck gets crowded.
So - limited, but some opportunity. We love ballroom and wish there was more, but we manage with what's there.
