I felt they were both worth going to.  Haven’t seen an ice show yet on any ship that I regretted seeing.

1887 has cool skating, but it's plot is hard to follow.  iSkate is cool as it's the skaters as themselves showing cool tricks.  I always have enjoyed seeing the ice shows for the skaters, they are amazing! You should go!

Personally, we did not care for 1887, it was just strange. (A lot of RC’s entertainment is strange, but we just did not care for this one.)

 

We did really enjoy iSkate. That was fun because it was the skaters picking their own music and making a routine that showcased their talents.

 

That being said, everything is personal taste, and I say go to all of the entertainment to see what you like the best!

 

Make sure that you go to Columbus! It was hilarious and the music was good.

I agree with you on the plot for 1887. Out of all the ice shows I have seen, this was the least enjoyable, even though the skaters were very good.

The ice shows are always worth seeing,  especially if you enjoy professional figure skating/dancing. The quality of the cast is outstanding, and it's always amazing to me how they can perform such acrobatic, athletic feats on a moving vessel. Like others said, it's not so much the plot as the talent of the performers. Definitely go!!

Agree, I always enjoy the ice shows.  Amazing what they can do on that little rink.

We saw 1971 and iSkate on Symphony a few weeks ago.  Both were great, but we liked iSkate better!

It's not about "plot".  It's about the skating.

 

Yes, that is what I was saying: to go fro the skating, which is amazing, not the plot for that one.

Yes, the skaters are very good.

I saw both and thought they were excellent and entertaining!  I suggest you go to both, if your schedule allows!

We love the different ice shows we find them all amazing. That is a must we sometimes see it twice.

Do you need reservations for both shows (on Symphony)?

You only need reservations for 1971.  Reservations for iSkate are not available - just show up early!

As a recently retired competitive figure skater, I LOVE the ice shows.  Knowing how much room we need as skaters to set up a jump and they do it on the tiny little rink is incredible.  And with how hot they must get, it's even more impressive.
