I thought the desserts were wonderful.  The best dinner we had was in the Windjammer - we ate there the first night.  All they had was pasta but it was delicious - probably the best we've ever eaten.  However, the Windjammer staff grilled us re why we were even eating there!  They wanted to know why we hadn't eaten in the main dining room.  (We had had a very very long day getting there and just didn't feel like eating until later in the evening.)  Also, on our '94 cruise soft drinks were included in the cruise price but this time they were extra.  We don't even drink soda pop so this doesn't affect us - just thought it was interesting.  The real disappointment were the flight arrangements made by Royal Caribbean.  It took us about 12 hours (yes 12) to get from Pittsburgh Pa to San Juan.  This was due to not having direct flights.  We had one three hour layover.  We were told that this was the best they could do.  I thought cruising from San Juan was a great idea, but I would not recommend it unless you can get direct flights.
