    That's what they will look like from the Pop thread. I saw a video at work. Kind of a version of Art of Animation suites on a budget!!!:hippie:

    It could be possible if they start right on Feb 1st but I wouldn't hold my breath. It really will depend on how many rooms they do at the same time is my guess.

    When we were on the Wonder in 2015 they were refurbishing a block of rooms each cruise but at the same time it was not nearly as extensive a refurbishment as what they're going to be doing here.

    It will be exciting to find out when they start...and where they start! My big decision this September will be whether to request a refurbished room or keep with our preferred location if the rooms we like are not done yet. I'm guessing my choice would be for a refurbished room as there are just 2 in our family + thought of a coffee maker sways me that way! :)

    I'm not sure what the floor is but is is a hard floor and not carpet.

    This is exciting. I am looking forward to seeing a finished refurbished room picture. I saw the mock up one and it looks really nice. Can't wait to stay at Pop.

    This is just a guess. I'm going to say 80's or 90's.

    If renovations start in February as expected, does anyone know from past renovations how long they usually take to complete? I really would like to stay there the end of July but double beds are too small.
