The Senses Spa has been updated in a soothing contemporary decor and includes Couples Villas, romantic retreats where twosomes can indulge in a side-by-side massage and spend time together in a private, open-air Jacuzzi.
At Marvel's Avengers Academy in the Oceaneer Club, kids ages 3 to 12 can do a multi-day superhero training program based on Marvel comics characters including Captain America, Iron Man and Thor. Disney's first shipboard Marvel tie-in includes a virtual reality game to become Iron Man and missions to fight super-villain Red Skull. Captain America himself makes appearances shipboard.
Dining The new Cariocas restaurant features a Brazilian-influenced menu with such dishes as impressively presented churrascaria-style meats and rum-marinated swordfish, in a space done up with Latin flair including colorful lighted lanterns.
Don't miss the 37-foot-tall AquaDunk body slide. You climb a tall staircase to the top of the ship's red funnel and lie down in a translucent "time capsule." Water rushes down your back, you listen to Donald Duck do the countdown and then a trap door opens and you plunge and whirl feet first -- including a 20-foot section that extends off the ship -- before a splashy water landing. It's a blast. (You must be at least 48 inches tall to ride.)
