Yes, I understand that but they also took away about half of the Sky Lounge. The extra space was for cabins as was the space they took away from the Sky Lounge. They did not add any space to Blu - only more seating.
I know you are a huge fan and cheerleader for Celebrity but you cannot justify what they have done or try to make it look like they haven't. They have taken away the space and turned it into cabins. They have increased capacity and made the ship more crowded and taken away from the common area.
You can go on about width and tonnage all you want - they changes were for cabins not common area where they have actually removed space.
