Well we are big jazz lovers, and music is played in our home/car everyday.
We are not big fans of steel drum music, but I do like it a little...to get me in the mood of being in the caribbean.
I suppose...and this is a bit drastic...you could wear ear plugs around the pool area.
But I do agree with you sometimes the music is over the top.
We have really enjoyed the art auctions, but the Princess ones were a flop. The RCL ones called Park Lane ???? were actually a real auction, and were very educational. We bought quite a few pieces and we get big compiements on them.
