I am very interested in one of the 9 day European Cruises.
Names notwithstanding, is it not considered bad luck to rename a ship? I have heard of a few cases where ships were renamed, and then had something unlucky happen.
My daughter said rumers had been flying that the main lounge was to be removed completely. I'm glad to see not completely. But with the aft lounge gone and the main lounge smaller this must be signaling the end of the big production shows that I like so much. Too bad. If it is sailing out of New Orleans Carnival had a great show "Big Easy" that can probably not be done without major reduction in the WOW factor.
I will probably not sail on the Sunshine
