Most ships in all the major cruise lines go through a refurbishment about every 3 to 4 years, so it really depends on where your ship is in the cycle. If it's due for refurbishment, then it will look a bit old, dated, and worn from the tens of thousands of passengers. Obviously, if it just came out of refurbishment, then it'll look fresh, new, and bright.

As for size, some people like the smaller ships better, because they provide a more intimate feel. Plus, the food is normally better on the smaller ships, because they don't have the huge quantity of passengers, like on the larger ships. Then again, the smaller ships are limited in the number of amenities for their passengers, so there are less things to do.

It's like I said, some people prefer the smaller ships more, while others prefer the larger ships. It's the same for cruise lines; some prefer one cruise line over another - just depends on your lifestyle, budget, and requirements.
