Default Cruise entertainment

What is your favorite form of entertainment on a cruise ship ?

We cruised with friends earlier this year .There preference is 50's music .

I normally only listen to classic rock but when on a cruise I like to listen to jazz .

I thought you said the bands you listen to would never play on a cruise ship, have you not been reading my articles about the rock legends cruise?

On cruise trip you will find yourself spending more time eating than doing anything else. Food is one of the main stars of any cruise trip.
