While some cruise lines stick to the old entertainment standards, such as musical revues and poolside bands, others have taken entertainment to another level by offering unique and creative shows.
Value for money is essential, of course. Food and facilities play a significant role in the parameters by which customers choose to spend their hard-earned money. But for the big operators, the range of onboard entertainment is a key differentiator.
Cruise ship entertainment has greatly evolved over the years. From small talent shows to today's enormous range of amusements, including Broadway musicals, stand-up comedy, celebrity appearances and state-of-the art casinos and nightclubs, cruise lines have upped customers' expectations.
