I do have pics that I will down load soon and post.
As for the fruit punch the only time we seen any was at the captains party.

I hope your cruise is smoother than ours was we had rough sea. Make sure to take sea sick meds if it bothers you. We were lucky none of our group got sick. But there was a lot of people that did.
we couldn't go snorkleing in cozumel because of it.

The food seemed the same to me as it did when we went June 07. It was good then. The only thing I seemed to notice this time was when you got food from the food bar it was never hot.....
The shows was good the one where they have the show girls was the exact same as june 2007. I thought they would have changed it by now.
As for the water slides my son didn't get to try them because they were closed most of our trip because of the wind. They had the decks closed a lot because the winds was to strong. He was a little up set about that but not to bad he had a good time with the circle C club when we finaly talked him in to going on the 3rd day.

That is weird that the food from the lido deck rest. was never hot becuase on all my cruises it was always hot. It seemed like they were always putting new food up of the item.

I tend to stay away from the buffets if possible. Being the the food service industry, what I know about food safety scares me about eating there. Bob

On our cruise in 07 on the fantasy the food was all hot. This time though it was not. I had cody hash browns not so good and cold fried potatos. Now the burgers and omlets were made as you ordered them so they were hot.
The rest of the food was good.
