hi guys

just wondering how often royal caribbean change their shows etc, friends of mine went last october on eastern caribbean and we're all just back from western caribbean and the shows and the ice show were all the same, a bit disappointing seeing as it was a different route.

anyway of finding out about entertainment on board before you travel? as I would hate this to happen to me.

Don't be too disappointed. I know there are times when I'll see a show a second time and see things I didn't remember from the first time. The cruise lines spend a lot of money to produce the big shows. The stage props, costumes, back drops, and just the time involved in learning the new dances and songs routine. It all cost a lot of money and it isn't uncommon for a cruise line to have the same show a whole year.

On a recent RCI cruise we were told by the CD that the production shows take a couple of years to develop and get ready for public viewing. They also have multi-million dollar budgets. RCI has a land-based theater in Florida where they put it all together before releasing the new show. Given all this, he said a show will have a 3-4 year production run before it is retired.

totally understand that, but when in october 2007 you do eastern caribbean, and in oct 2008 you do western when the itinerary is different you would expect a different show?

I would have no pity for them if they did western again as the show was running their last year, so to run it on a particular ship on a particular itinerary would be ok but not diff itinerarys im afraid...sob

Many ships alternate though. The same ship may do Eastern one week, Western next week. They wouldn't change the show for the different itinerary. Someone doing a back to back cruise on the same ship, will see the same shows they just saw the week prior.

A show is a show is a show....when they are bad, I don't want to see it again, if it's good, Show it to me again....It's just a small part of a cruise....Happy Sailing...
