After pounding the pavements in port all day (Viking Homelands) I'll be lucky to be able to stay awake for any evening entertainment. Not a deal breaker for me.To be honest, in two cruises I have seen two shows. By the time dessert came to the table each night, I was ready for quiet time. It had nothing to do with the shows themselves; I was just done (in?) for the day. On the other hand, DH, who is in bed by 9 pm most nights, did not miss a single show, even if it was the second time he was seeing it.
In July we took the Viking Homelands cruise, and we enjoyed the entertainment. Philw1776 is correct - the shows are not the big glitzy shows that one sees on other cruise lines. There were 3 young men and 3 young female singers, and a young couple who were the dancers. The guys did a Rat Pack Show, the entire cast did an ABBA show, the young ladies did a show, and there was a Broadway music show. In addition, as Philw1776 indicates there is a guitarist, a pianist, and a classical music trio who perform in different locations on the ship.We had the same rotation when we went in June. We saw all the shows and tried to relax for the early entertainment and they were all great. On our tour, we also had a very funny comic. So sometimes, you get guest acts.

We just finished the Homelands cruise and agree with Spursgirl- we thought the singing acts were weak. Heather Clancy, the cruise director, performed one night and she was fabulous. The music in the atrium was pleasant. I think there might have been a movie or two under the stars, but I'd need several heated blankets and a small campfire in order to brave the very cool temps we had. Sometimes just watching and talking with fellow travelers was the most enjoyable way to pend our time.Movies under the stars is by the pool and if the weather is too cool, they close the roof.
