Hey, you can watch TV at home. No need to pay $1000/person to watch TV while on a cruise. When I worked in the hotel industry, we'd often get complaints of TV's being on too loud and the places I worked at still had real walls. Can you imagine what'll happen with those thin walls on a cruise?
That said, if this must come to pass:
The Travel Channel - duh...
Fox News (so that we can see the real news)
CNN (so that we can see the slanted version - ha ha)
CNN Headlines (just so that I can continue waking up with Robin - hey, what can I say, I'm a faithful guy!)
CNN en español (because there's tons of Spanish speaking cruisers nowadays)
It would be nice to have a channel that shows only good documentaries of the ports one is visiting. None of those "shopping" oriented ones or paid for by the excursion people or even the local travel boards, but the ones that truly give a deep insight into the ports. PBS like stuff, which would really go into deep details of the history, culture, geography, plant & animal life, music, foods and current politics of each port area. Again, this should be available in several languages.
However, again, I think TV should be minimized on vacation. We watch too much as it is...
