Seems like they're making innovations for extra revenue, but I could be wrong.

I got a picture of the Radiance docked next to the Oasis in Cozumel. Quite a difference in size. And to think that the Epic is the same length as the Oasis, is just mind boggeling. What's even more amazing is that the extra 6' in width holds 700 additional passengers.

Not happy to see Starbucks invading the ships.

I have never had Starbucks coffee. We've had one in Athens for about 5 or 6 years but I've never felt the urge to stop. I guess I just can't get too excited about paying a lot of money for a cup of coffee, although I do like good coffee.

Not a specialty coffee fan period.

I am a little excited about Samba's and Rita's for a little change.

They definitely need to do something with the older ships. There were two of them in Nassau along side the rejuvenated Carnival Fantasy. They looked pitiful in comparison. They looked like they haven't been painted in years.

There is something about paying $5 or more for a cup of terrible coffee that appeals to some I suppose. I have tried the Starbucks and hated it everytime. Of course, the guy running the marketing of that company must be a genuis. He or she has proven that you CAN make chicken salad out of chicken poop!!!

I'm not a coffee drinker, so have never had a Starbucks. Lots of people love them. I wonder if they replacing the "Seattle's Best Coffee" counters on the ships, or adding some competition.

I've heard of some that get the jitters and/or heart palpatations from drinking the brew..I've never really liked it much.
