I just found your thread and wanted to let you know we went on our 1st SJC this past February. I can't say enough good things about it. More activities each day than you can get to - meaning music choices. While the ship is larger then I think you were hoping for everything worked out very well. Brian Culbertson would hang out in the buffet area and was very approachable. We saw Rich Braun with his wife and so on ... IMO you owe it to yourself to do this cruise just once if you love smooth jazz music. I would call the travel agent who charters the entire ship because they are going to release the 2020 smooth jazz musicians sometime this month.
