Default Big Band Cruises?

Besides Crystal Cruises, are there any cruise lines offering Big Band theme cruises?

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.
