We just returned from our cruise on the Carn Glory. Yes the live bands on Lido are gone. As part of the 2.0 make over cutbacks. As it is the same with most other areas on the ship .On Lido the DJ plays programmed music to welcome all the Caribbean bound cruisers very loud modern basically today music . It didn't set the mood for us. The big shows are gone , No more vegas type shows , cut back to 8 singers /dancers with computer graphics on screen. The 2.0 makeover has good points too. But music cutbacks suck.We did enjoy our cruise in spite of changes. Since Carnival doesn 't do the island for our next cruise. it looks like th Emerald Princess might fill the bill ,10 days southern caribbean. Any input would be helpfull, our first time on Princess. Happy cruising.
