Paul, our favorite line is Princess, but have not been on a Princess ship in a while because of being able to go where we want for less on other lines. By far we enjoyed the entertainment on Princess the best and LOVED the food. Princess has had the best comediens, muscians and magicians on board. One of the best is a couple named "Live Wire" they are from Ireland and are very good, I would pay to see them on land.
We have enjoyed our cruises with Carnival and I have to say a lot of that has to do with the big screen at the pool, we spend a lot of the evenings watching the movie or concert there instead of being in the theater or a lounge. We do not go to the casino and only I have a drink or two during the cruise.
I realise that you don't have to pay for any of the shows like the Blue Man group and I do think that is one reason I would rather see them in Vegas or Orlando, because they have to be sure they are good or the people will not come to see them and that means no money coming in. Of course on the ship the Blue Man group will have to be good too or no contract. Most of the theaters on the ships we have been on have not really been that great to me, but on the Oasis with the cost of building the ship and with the cost to cruise on it I would hope the venues for the shows would be great.
