Yes, the past cruisers party has not changed.
I honestly can say I don't remember the traditional calling out of the officers onto the stage thing. But I may not have gone to that nights show. I skipped a couple of shows on this cruise. The thing about the new way they do the Captains "meet and greet" is that you can meet more than just the captain. All the officers were mingling about on the promenade deck, so you could talk to any of them instead of being limited to the Captain, 1st officer, CD that used to attend the captain's party.
