While we realize that the company has to make a profit, we found it a little off-putting to have as much selling going on as there was. For instance, instead of the nice coffee stand we remembered from a few years back, there's a Seattle's Best shop. While there IS still complimentary coffee, it's tucked away in a corner of the pool bar. Similarly, the soft-serve self-serve ice cream machine (which my kids loved) is hidden away, while the Ben and Jerry's shop is prominently advertised on the ship map.
Pros: wonderful food and service
Cons: unplanned 'day at sea' due to weather
