I too thjink it is interesting. There is something about strange/bizarre/loud decor. It draws attention to itself.
The one ship that has what I would call tacky decor is the Valor. Sorry folks, look at it from a foreigners perspecitve. it throws "Im American" in your face and it appears all over the ship. Even though the theme is Heros/Heroics, it seems that the main focus is on the US only and little else. I have seen pictures on Webshots and that decor put me off that ship. I will gladly sail on other ships, but unless the Valor has a route that I can't miss out on, I won't be sailing on that ship...
My first cruise was on the Holiday, and the bus on the Promenade was interesting and always a popular spot for people to take pictures.
