Public Restrooms on the Wonder?

Planning a cruise on the Wonder about a year from now. My elderly father (now 87) is telling us he does not want to go and my sister thinks it may be because he is worried about not having clean restrooms at a close distance from him most of the time on the ship. My sister cruised (I think on Princess?) with her elderly father-in-law this past summer and she mentioned that restrooms were sometimes a long walk from places they frequented like the main dining room. We can try to encourage our Dad to go by presenting a favorable public restroom situation on the Wonder if they are readily available. Anyone?

As you can see on the map, restrooms are available all over the ship. At Animators Pallate and Parrot Cay they are right outside the door. At Triton's they are located just past Promanade Lounge (not very far).

Seriously. There was almost always an attendant in every restroom I went in. I think someone lives in the bathroom on the pool deck of the Fantasy . She was always in there mopping up the wet floor and sanitizing. I almost felt bad using the facilities she had just cleaned! But man do the cleaning staff do an amazing job!

I'm a germaphobe and the bathrooms on the Wonder were so clean--almost every time I went in there they were freshly cleaned. Only *one* time did I go in and see a problem (and it was a gross one). I immediately left the bathroom and found a cast member and notified them of the issue. They were horrified and immediately notified the correct personnel and the bathroom was cleaned immediately. I would venture a guess that the problem I saw was a very rare one.

I will add to what everyone else has said. I rarely walked by a set of restrooms that weren't being cleaned. The restrooms on DCL are by far the nicest public restrooms I have encountered.
