They play a variety of music. Carnival subscribes to Promo Only, a music subscription service that allows music professionals to have access to hot music before it is released to the public. (as far as i know all ships do this, if i am wrong i stand corrected). Most of what the director will play will be hip hop and rap but there will be some popular rock and mabye a few country. I am sure that the DJ will be more than happy to play your requests.
