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.
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.
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!!!
