Does anyone have experience with one of those? Is the ship "fully operational" or do they lack a lot of the normal things to do (no enrichment, live entertainment, etc.)?

I have done them at least three times. The ship is fully operational . Some of the activities designed for longer cruises won't be done or the time is reduced . Can't remember but there might not be a formal night.Port talks and enriches aren't done . They also have good sales on merchandise from the locations . SB they have a great sale on Alaska merchandise . NB they have tropical things greatly reduced.
This cruise is great for myself & DW as we only have to fly once. A lot more younger couples and families on these cruises. There is more of a party atmosphere as well.
