Just returned from my second cruise and loved the art auctions. The host gave out a lot of information on the artist and I learned alot. My wife and I attended 3 out 3 of the ship auctions and enjoyed them. We did not buy anything but the atmosphere is fun and relaxed. The host was a Canadian - Michelle. No ones holding agun to your head to go, so if you know you don't like them ........stay away!!!!! I don't like the party type pool games so I don't go or attend something else while this goes on and let those who do like them enjoy themselfs.
Stop complaing about a minor detail of the cruise. The cruise line would never be able to please all the people all the time.
