All of the movies after ST: Generations set a new design principle which was followed into DS9 and Voyager as well. Ships were designed to be smaller,sleeker, and more utilitarian than Utopian, and unfortunately STO has pretty much completely disregarded this.

Anyone that watched DS9 knows the Defiant is a tough little badass and it proved it many times.

Voyager made it what 70,000 light-years

Bigger isn't better and this needs to be translated into the new bridge designs as well as the new ship designs.
No offense taken.

The Odyssey has two bridges included into the pack. A very spacious main bridge which is a variant of the star cruiser bridges and the smaller bridge of the Aquarius. Specifically I was talking about the Aquarius bridge, but not that the layout but more about the style of the consoles. Personally I think a bridge can be kept small and utilitarian and at the same time a bit more futuristic.
