I think some thought should be given to the intinary that the ship is following. Local musicians or entertainment that reflects the up coming ports of call, would get you into the proper mood for exploring. Not in evey lounge, but featured as part of the theme for that particular cruise. Perhaps in the Grand Concourse or buffet area of the ship. It would be a great way to add to the experience of the cruise, especially where port time is limited to less than one day.
