I would think different cruise line and ships play different tunes. I couldn't believe it on our last Carnival Legend cruise, they played the theme from Titanic!

The song you might be referring to is "1492: The Conquest of Paradise" by Vangelis. It used to be tradition to play this song on Celebrity ships while departing ports, although I haven't heard them play it for quite some time. I believe the band Onxy is the only one that still regularly plays it.

On Summit in Alaska in May seems to me they played a variation of "Over the Rainbow" - at least I seem to remember hearing that being played as we departed from several ports.....someone said it was their "signature song" -

They played "Over the Rainbow" during sailaways on the Millie in December. It is the version from the musical "The Wiz."

Cheers,

Don't they have live music for sailaway? If so, is it outside anywhere, or just inside in a lounge or atrium area? No matter how great a song is, live beats canned, in my opinion.
It's certainly more festive.

On the Century the band was playing on the stage at the pool area-the band was Xtasea and they were fantastic.

Was the band Onyx great too?
