Why is the Fox News Channel not seen on Royal Caribbean TV? I only recall CNN as being the only choice for news.

Geez, I never noticed. I guess I don't pay much attention to the news when on a cruise.

No criticism please. It's a legitimate question and you may not understand why I'm asking. Thank you cruise fanatic for attempting to seriously answer.

Sometimes we like to have a little fun. Didn't know it was such a serious question.

I would have sworn Fox was on Voyager when we were on her in January

I'm just guessing that the reason is that FOX news is seen by many as a rather controversial news station. The ships may avoid it for that reason; I don't think I've ever seen anything but CNN on a ship. It may simply be because CNN draws more viewers/higher ratings and there may be an assumption that more passengers would rather watch it. Something to let Guest Relations know if it's important to a lot of people. It seems fairly easy to have two news channels available.
