Default Fasination?

I sailed on her in 96, and I know they gave her a major upgrade not all that long ago. Has anybody sailed on her before and after the upgrade.

I will be getting my first bucket of Bud Light onboard her May 7th and I cant wait,but I am interested what has changed on the ship in 11 years.

Thanks in advance for any info!!!!

13 days and counting!!

Well for example I hear they have flat screen Tvs in all the cabins now. Not that I plan on watching much TV on the cruise but they are nice to pass out to
Did you noticed if they have added a sports bar?
Thanks alot for your reply!!!

I have not been on it yet, but same as you will be there May 7th. I read that they upgraded the T.V's, Interior Decor, and bedding I think? I have been hopelessly trying to find new pictures but have not been so lucky. Carnivals site doesn't offer and "up to date" virtual tours...only a few photos. but I guess in a few days I will take my own photos! 8)

Yes there was a 15" flat screen mounted in the corner in my cabin. It was nice. I think I turned it on once when we first walked in the cabin and that was about it. HAHAHA

The only bar that had any "sports" stuff in it was the Coconut Grove bar at that back of the buffet next to the pizza and deli but very few tvs and since it was in the buffet it didn't really have a bar atmosphere. The best bar to watch sports seemed to be the Beverly Hills bar right out side Putting on the Ritz which is right under the buffet on the Promenade deck. Why? There was never anyone there and you could belly up to the bar and they had screens across the whole bar.
