However, there’s more to entertainment on board than the show lounge. Smaller groups of musicians and singers are the unsung background to enjoyable nights on board.
In the Lobby Atrium we’ve been entertained for hours by the mellow sounds of Two’s Company—Mary Ann and Rex from the Philippines—pictured here. Mary Ann’s rendition of “I Will Always Love You” sent a shiver down my spine. Rex is equally talented and together their version of “Islands in the Stream” was equally impressive.
To bring the action and sound up a notch, the four-piece combo Music Asia (also from the Philippines) provides rock ‘n roll tunes on the Promenade Deck at the Casino Bar. They’ve proven so popular that tables and chairs have been moved aside to provide additional room for dancing. The range of their playlist is incredibly diverse, including everything from Jimmy Buffett to Santana. Mel and I even joined in when they slowed down the vibe with “Unchained Melody” on Cruise Elegant night. It was like prom without all the fuss.
