Here are a few points that I will make.
1. the new sunshine class ship is the same size as Freedom class; but with more passengers
2. I loved the Allure of the Seas; I did think Central Park was a waste of space and never really used it; I did love the Boardwalk and spent time there. Even when the weather was chilly; the boardwalk was fine;
3. The rising tide bar is a novelty; something that may not last; once you've been on it; that's it; no so for the carousel on the boardwalk.
4. The taxi's in Ft. Lauderdale are still cheap; and our driver stopped at the Walgreens on the end of the port, so my wife could go shopping; after stopping for supplies the price still low
