Default Entertainment on Oosterdam

How is the entertainment on Oosterdam? I've been on RCCL Voyager and Mercury Celebrity. We like the broadway type shows with dancers and musicians, but also like a good clean comedian as well. Any feedback appreciated.

We jsut returned from a cruise on the Oosterdam. There singers and dancers were enjoyable but I wouldn't call them Las Vegas or Broadway style. They also had a comedian who managed to be both funny and clean...there were several children in the audience and the comedy was not offensive. They also had a singer, Eddie (can't remember his last name). He sang "Lonely Girl" in the early sixties. He was pretty good. I liked the Vista lounge, most seats were comfortable but several support poles limit the view from some seats. They had an "American Idol" type contest that had nearly everyone on the ship talking. They had to move it into the Vista Lounge because the audience got so large. All in all, not spectacular entertainment but very enjoyable.

Hi grandma kr,

That would be Eddie Holman.

Here's a link to the "Lonely Girl" song:


I loved that song!

Thanks, Fern. You know how sometimes you KNOW a name but it just won't work its way out of your brain! I did enjoy Eddie Holman, and he can still hit that HIGH note.

Was on the Oo in March.

Good entertainment for the whole family.
We don't prefer Broadway type shows...But there was plenty of other entertainment for everyone's taste.
