FWIW: I am sitting here with Linda Garrison from About.com Cruises. She said Blu appears to be the sam size to her - however, I noticed that the number of new suites they added with acccess with Blu is just about 40 - not exactly a ton of new people.
I remember hearing in the past the restaurant was always somewhat open. Anyway - please do let u know.
