My wife and I always enjoy the karaoke on the ship, we just wish they would allow more time for it. If I remember correctly, there was only about a 1.5 hour time set aside for this and many who wanted to sing did not get a chance. I am thinking a whole night in one of the lounges would be more like it.

Yes indeed. I have sung on some 12 different Carnival ships and one of the best times I had was on the Sensation. (Max was a great karaoke host!)

Fortunately, it runs about 3 hours a night now. I can remember when we were lucky to get 1 1/2 hours every other night. Now every ship has a dedicated karaoke host (paid the same as a social host) that does karaoke every night.

Several years ago, I wrote "Uncle Bob" and suggested that Carnival could save money by converting one of the "lounges" from a 3 member (sometimes duo) band (that no one listened to) to a karaoke session (that everyone loved).
So instead of paying a professional band, they pay a karaoke host.

Another tip: You can bring your own cdgs. The karaoke hosts have always been very careful with mine.

I don't sing, but love the Karoake. It is so much fun and entertaining. A mix of young and old, and am always impressed with the talent and even those without, it is fun watching them have fun. There is something about a vacation and especially a cruise vacation that people will just let loose and have fun. Even the not great singers get applauded for their guts and sense of fun. I always check the "Capers" for the time and place.

I tell everyone it is all in fun. I mean, if we were Whitney Houston...we wouldn't be there. But we are just average folks. I know what you mean about even the folks who can't sing. They can really put on more of a show sometimes than those of us who can sing!!

Yes, it all makes for fun. And there is some great un-discovered talent. I am very impressed with your list of Ships you have been on. I really would have liked to have sailed on the MardiGras and Festivale.
