I was on this ship in August and I heard the same thing. New Carpeting, flat panel televisions and Moderno. GSC is receiving major upgrades too. Buzz was that they are planning on building a hotel on the private island where passengers can stay overnight or for a few days.

If the pictures (shown to me last year) of the new design to the buffet area did, in fact, happen . . . it would be a very good thing for this ship.

Yes, was on the 10/28 cruise on Sky from Miami! Not as many updates as I was hoping for, but it was clear that some of the updates were still in progress. They have replaced all the carpeting in the public areas, and they have refreshed the fitness center (all new equipment). I believe they are slowing adding the new flat-screen TVs as well, but no other updates to he rooms that I could see.

Was on the Sky in 2002 then again in 2004 for the first sailing as the Pride of Aloha and now would like to hear and see what has changed. Planning on sailing on her in 2014.
