The Fincantieri hull design which provides great stability (as I recently learned in hurricane force winds), reasonable draft and high manueverability is proving to be highly desireable to both passenger and crew alike. The new stateroom configurations are wonderful (i.e. Cove Balconies) and this 130,000 ton class of ship gets into nearly all the popular ports without requiring substantial alterations to the port facilities.
It is an excellent design and should be repeated a few more times. It is adefinite winner!!
