Well unlike previous "big announcement" teases, this one is actually a big announcement. Aside from refurbishing The Liberty with updates like the Serenity Deck, HiDef SeaSide theater and a Blue Iguana bar/Mexican food restaurant pool side, Carnival has announced some big ticket items. The biggest being George Lopez becoming the comedy club "manager" if you will with George finding the talent and running the venue across the ships. ALso Guy Fieri is coming to Carnival and opening Guy's Burger Bar's (starting on Liberty) that feature Guy's burgers and onion rings (no extra fee). The sports bars are becoming EA Sports bars with their gaming. And they have signed an agreement with Hasbro to provide some form of game shows (with prizes). It sounded like these updates will migrate through out the fleet (much like the Serenity deck concept did) over time.
At least they are trying to keep the product fresh and entertaining.
