Default Onboard Entertainment -Show Styles - Risque or Conservative?


My wife and I are considering our first ever cruise on the Crown Princess later this year (November) to the Carribean. She's very conservative and gets unsecure/upset around scantily clad women. She doesn't mind shows with bad language or adult themes, its just the women... For example, once in Vegas, she got offended by the Circue de Soleil Mystere female acrobat wearing a thong-like red leotard.

Friends, help me out, I really want to go on this cruise but I need to know the culture/entertainment onboard. If we do go, what types of activities do you think we might mutually enjoy? Or is this just a waste of our money? Perhaps Princess is not for us? Is there another cruise-line that would be more "conservative" that you would reccommend?

Lots of questions -- any insights would be appreciated.

I don't think you will have a problem. However you must remember that nobody glues you to your chair. You do have the right to leave a show that might not be to your collective taste. Have a great cruise.

P.S. Most of the cruise lines have very similar types of entertainment. It is seldom racey. Or so it seems to me.

The most "risque" outfits you'll encounter will be by the pools.

No need to worry, like Kuki said, the pools are where you might consider staying away from?

The 'Vegas' style shows in the theater will also have scantily clad women on stage. Stick to the Comedy shows, go to the Disco or Piano Bar.

There are so many things to do onboard, you both will have a blast!

Sweet Sailing!

Entertainment onboard is so diversified, there is something for every

And Kuki si sooo right..once by the pool a woman got so involved in singing, she popped right out of her top... Also the speedo ratio, sometimes runs high....hiding behind sun glasses is a good thing

Trip, with her book & tea!

Cruising entertainment is usually aimed at families, There will be scantily clad dancers during big show productions. As everybody has said.. there are piano bars and other spots for entertainment.. but the most hysterical bodies can be scene by the pool, espcially men in their Speedos and European women over a certain age in two piece bathing suits... Also, beware if there is an area where nudity (brassless) is allowed.

Kuki is so right, the pool area might be more upsetting than the shows,
but have a great cruise anyway.

It would probably help her self esteem issues if you closed your mouth and picked your tongue up off the floor.

For the pool area, do what I do, and invest in a pair of mirrored sunglasses..

i totally agree with the others, if you are worried about scantly clad women the shows are the least of your worries, you will see less clothing at the pool, in the gym, at dinner and on the beaches. FYI if you go to any island that is french (St. Maarten for example) the beaches are topless and there are also portions that are clothing optional

Not sure if the Caribbean is the place for her though is she's offended by thongs on a stage. You're going to see a lot of them and skimpy tops on the islands.
