I liked the Jamaican music that was poolside when I cruised Carnival. However, when we cruised the Grand Princess last year, I noticed that we were seldom treated to the Jamaican Steel Band at poolside. Occasionally the band would play, but mostly what we heard was either recorded easy listening music or country music, which I thought was a big let-down. When I am at the pool, with the sun, wind and water, I WANT to hear Caribbean music, not easy listening! I don't even care if it is not live. That really disappointed me on the Grand.
