Pretty good review. Like you, I was greatly disappointed by the desserts on this ship. The chocolate was some brown-colored tasteless goop and nearly all the desserts lacked flavor. Most of the desserts made with fruit were pretty edible but the baked goods--the pies, cakes etc.--mostly awful. Just because it's sweet doesn't mean it's good. We stuck to the Cupcake Factory for the good stuff. Also agree with the quality of the ice show. Those Russians sure can skate.
