I would like to see a show, contrasting the differences between how cruising was in it's infancy, vs today.

Just eating in the dining room, vs all the pay venues.

How formal has almost disappeared form the face of cruising.

How the onboard entertainment has changed from the Las Vegas type shows, ans simple activities, to rollerskating and aqua shows.

Next......

Several years ago there was an attempt made at a regular cruise television show... called Porthole TV, I believe.

They did a few episodes, and then they were cancelled.

We have a small production company and we are exploring the possibilty. If 15+ million Americans cruise every year that would seem to give you a larger audience than many of these other niche shows that appear on cable channels. We alwso want to appeal to people who have never cruised.

Travel shows are popular. When we sat down to discuss possible subject matter the ideas seemed endless. I know first hand how hard it is to sell a show to even just a regional cable company let alone a major cable channel. We will see....

How about extended comparisons between different lines and different ships within lines..

More thoughts; ports of call, independent touring, emergency situations - what the crew is doing that you do't see, the real story behind "recommende shopping"

Just don't do the "passengers will eat 2500 dozen eggs, 45,000 pounds of beef, 10,000 bottles of beer" or "the ship is longer than 3 football fields" fact fillers. Its really getting old. How about some cooler facts and maybe some cruise ship secrets or tips, since a lot of people have now gone on a cruise?

I personally would like to see less "behind the scenes" crap and more footage of various ships and their amenities. No program has focused on Family Cruising yet, also. Since more ships are lowering their "level of service", maybe less emphasis on the fancy stuff, and more on whats included in the cruise fare. A lot of the current programs are just commercials for the "cruise upsell".
