Don't overlook Cunard's Queen Mary 2. While not a "big band" cruise, there is ballroom/swing dancing every night in the largest ballroom at sea. On transatlantic crossing there are also two afternoon tea dances.
The music tends to be mostly foxtrot, swing and cha-chas, but they do throw in a few rhumbas, waltzes and quicksteps each night. There is also strict tempo recorded music playing during the band breaks.
