Well I think that your "I have heard info" is a little bit behind my "I have heard" info
Here is what I have heard and read. Michaels Club is being turned into a VIP lounge for Suites and Zenith level of the Captains club. There may or may not be other ways of getting in..if you get my drift.
The Beers are in the process of moving to "Cellar Master's" area which previously just had wine. This is happening as I understand it over time. Some ships may be ahead of others. My latest sailing on X has no bearing as the Century has left the fleet.
I have have heard however that they do have some good brands available if the ship has switched over.
PS I hope to have some personal knowledge soon ...but how soon is still up in the air.
