There are always a whole host of different types of entertainment on-board different cruise ships. Generally, the larger the cruise ship is, the more choices of entertainment you will have, so there is sure to be a style of entertainment to suit everyone.

Every larger ship has a theatre on-board, where you will be treated to many different styles of shows. Some ships have Broadway style musicals, comedians, big bands and guest entertainers from all over the world. I’ve seen some great production shows on different cruise ships, sometimes so good you forget you aren’t watching it in a theatre at home!

Wide Variety of Entertainment

On-board some of the largest and most modern cruise ships there are a wide variety of types of entertainment that you probably wouldn’t expect to find on a ship. Some ships have ice rinks, where the guest are treated to ice shows, and can even have a go at ice skating themselves during the day.

Royal Caribbean’s newest ships, Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas, both have open-air Aqua Theatres at the rear of the ships which features shows by high divers and imaginative water shows. If the sheer size of those two ships doesn’t appeal to you, then some of Royal Caribbean’s smaller ships also have interesting entertainment options.

The newly refurbished Vision class of ships, which are smaller and more intimate, have aerial acrobatic shows in the centrum areas. Definitely not your traditional style of entertainment on a cruise ship!

For more traditional styles of entertainment, most ships which have lounge areas offer live music in the evenings. Some even have cabaret style shows and bands playing where guests are encouraged to get up on the dance floor and show off their moves.

Piano Bars and Nightclubs!

Most larger ships will also have a nightclub, which is perfect for those on-board who wish to dance and have fun until the wee small hours. However, if you’re looking for a more relaxing evening on-board after a long day of sightseeing in port, then most ships usually have a piano bar where you can recharge your batteries with someone tinkling the piano keys in the background.

Some ships even have dedicated sports bars where you can watch live sports matches during the day, or in the evening if that is where your interests are.

With all of these options available, you might have trouble fitting it all into your cruise holiday!
