Going back many years I remember the steel band playing on deck for hours day after day and it seems over the last several years they are playing less or not even there.

Do you wish they were there more often?

Absolutely! Especially for a Caribbean cruise, at sailaway, its a must have. Cruising out of Miami (or whichever port) with a DOD in hand and the steel drum band playing.......

Yes...This thing with the big screens on the new ships....Well, I really won't say what I think of it but, yes again. I say no more big screen music during the day and give me some cool steel drums.....

By the way Steve...This might be the first pole you get a 100% yes on....

I would rather have more live music and less of the bigscreen. The movies at night seem popular with some people, but the music videos they have during the day don't do much for me, just background noise.

Yes, this is why you are cruising to the islands and part of cruising to the islands are listening to those steel drums.

I am in shock. A Stevaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa poll that actually makes sense. Yes, definetly they should bring back a full steel drum band.

I would rather have bands yes, but not so much of the steel drums. I actually voted no here. I don't mind them from time to time, but in the past they were overdone in my opinion.

Absolutely yes, more steel drums. Should definitely have more live music during the day like years ago. Dont really care for the big screen movies. Live music is what is should be.

CARNIVAL, BRING IT BACK!!!

Unfortunately, it's been so long that they played frequently that I don't remember it ever being overdone. They could play from morning 'til night and it is still wouldn't get old for me.

We have not cruised yet, but I did vote yes. On some of our Florida Beach Vacations we have stayed at hotels that have had the steel drum bans out by the pool. This alone has added so much to the relaxing feel of the vacation. IMO, I think that folks would be more likely to spend more at the pool bars if they were in the vacation mode -VS- a blasting TV screen.

Definately bring the steel drums for sailaways! More emphasis is needed on the live music, whatever kind it may be during this time. Having some sort of barbecue would also be nice (one of the NCL ships did this during their sailaways).

 

When the ship is underway, the large screen can then entertain the sunbathers.

Our last cruise was Jan 2008....we're going again Aug 2010.....didn't realize the 'big screens' replaced the live music....can't imagine not enjoying the 'festive atmosphere' of the live music and DOD 'to get the party started' while the ship is still docked.....we have WONDERFUL memories of those first few hours...and the steel drum, reggae-style music is what I think of when I enjoy those memories!

 

PLEASE...bring back LIVE music! Movies at night only...?
