Another example of Orlando not understanding what his core base wants.
Gosh, isn't this just one cruise? Perhaps if will attract like minded Oprah followers, but the next week there will be another sailing, perhaps with featured speakers on Russian ballet, for example...you never know, do you?
Don't see the fuss and blaming HAL for trying something new. Who cares, we all choose the activities we want to attend, be it needlework, Bridge, ping pong. This could start a thread about "doozy" HAL speakers..I could name a few, and many are boring!
My first cruise, a TA on the Nieuw Amsterdam, the shows were aimed at a pre WW2 audiences..hey, they were old but not that old! And how about the screaming worn-jean wearing musical cast on the Eurodam? Hip hop isn't that appropriate on a TA.
MESSAGE: lower your expectations and go to the movies or the Dance lounge...if you get the wrong speakers or performers: you will still have a great cruise for a myriad of other reasons.
