Nice to be back onboard this year, I missed all my pals. Well, some of you. Some bullet points from my view:

-Lots of good music, maybe not enough weird music. How about some DJs that aren't members of a non-EDM band?

-LOVE the new boat. Nice to be smaller again, you don't go without seeing peeps for days and there are no brutal distances to cover between sets. Centralized location of everything is great...LOVE the Spinnaker.

-Lights are too bright in the ol' eyes. They got better by the third day, not sure if my suggestions got through or I just went somewhere else. Pool Deck and Theater moving heads were brutal, they don't need to be in our faces that much. Takes away from the experience, which is the opposite of what they're supposed to do. Dial it back a little, guys. You have the technology, make some cues that won't burn our retinas while trying to watch someone play.

-Atrium is awesome, I love the relaxed layout of the room and the larger indoor stage. Great to be able to get some food and coffee and chill inside while a great set is happening.

-Good call on skipping Grand Cayman, way better than dealing with a lot of crappy weather. AND we got our two consecutive days at sea that we've been asking for since 2005. YAY!

-Staff was very nice, patient, etc. More of a language barrier than some previous years, but not a big problem. Very nice that they weren't already weary from Holy Ship!

I have more input, it'll come out when I think of it. Feels nice to post here again, Facebook has ruined the world.

Welcome back, pal. We missed you.

I would also have loved some DJ action that was made up of actual DJs. The music was all great, but I never really felt creepy at all...and I kind of like being creepy.

I loved the new ship, the size was fantastic. I spent many minutes of my life in the spa, which was awesome...but it was fast and easy to get back out. I would love to see the disco moved to the theater. The Bliss was way too small (even removing 75% of the chairs in that room would help for sure) and WAY too far away from the Spinnaker. Another option would be to have some kind of TV stream setup outside of the venues so that you can see what's happening elsewhere on the ship without going all the way there just to find out that it isn't happening.

The music should go later.

We did kickball onboard this year for the first time ever. Sunrise, day 4. It was easy and fun and lots of people were able to be there. I think it may always be on the ship from now on, provided we have a space to play. The sports deck was perfect.


Again. so glad you're back AB.

Welcome back on all fronts. :DANCE: :CLAP:

The new ship is definitely a good thing, let's keep it!

I wrote this in my survey. We thought this idea was brilliant:-) Why not? We HAVE the technology? It would be awesome to stop in the room for a chill and then check the theater channel to see if the next set had started yet.

It keeps me centered and unpopular.
