Just a quick observation from our cruise last week that I meant to throw out there for comment.
I already stated that I didn't think the shows (RCCL Singers and Dancers, as well as the comedian and other entertainers) were up to the quality exhibited by the singers and dancers on the Radiance when we went to Alaska in July 2005. During that cruise, if you were not in the theater at least 20 minutes before the show started, you didn't have a seat in which to sit.
Last week, we strolled in a couple of times 5 to 10 minutes after the show started and had a choice of seats (none, however, within the first 10 rows).
Is this a function of the itinerary, the quality of the shows, or a combination of these and other factors? We did not make the welcome aboard show, and I can't imagine that show dictating the attendance at the rest of the shows for the week.
So, do Alaskan cruise shows, for whatever reason, have a generally higher attendance level than Caribbean or Mexican itineraries?
