Default List the entertainment for entire cruise on the first day

I think it would be nice if the cruise lines listed the entire entertainment scheddule in their daily newsletter at the beginning of the cruise.

It would be nice to see what nights the shows are early for the late seating and what the entertainment will be each evening. This way I could schedule my nights, if I want to go to the show or another venue.

Also, it would be nice if they would let you know what the entertainer does, i.e. Broadway singer, pianist, violinist etc. IT's usually very vague when they list the entertainment.

Now I've only cruised RCL and Celebrity so maybe the other lines does this.

Does anyone feel the same way?

I think it's a great idea.

It's a nice idea, but many entertainers switch ships mid-cruise. And they do this weekly.

How unhappy would some passengers be if the entertainment announced on the first night of the cruise didn't happen because of missed transfers, etc (think hurricane season and the itinerary disruptions.) While some of us would understand that ship happens, many more would view this as one more opportunity to gripe.

I do agree that more precise descriptions of what the entertainment is would be much appreciated!

I think this is an excellent suggestion, especially a more detailed description of what the entertainer does or what type of show it is.

I have been on many ships that I had no idea what type of an act a singer or performer was until I attended the show and sat there for a few songs.

If the word "Renditions" appears in the description I don't attend.

Take care,
Mike

I am one of the rude people who try to sit upstairs in the back on the aisle so that I can quietly slip away if the entertainment is a surprise and not what I expected.

Mike, I have just read your rendition, and I agree.

Hi,

Your right , they did do this on the Disney Cruise and It was really nice. We made our plans before hand so we could drop the kids and go.

I agree. Now lets make sure the cruiseline hears this.
