Cruise ship band was terrible! Felt like we were at a wedding, listening to a cheap hired band. Yes, they actually played "Celebrate" and "We are Family"; no "Proud Mary", though. I'm sure our group was not the only one to feel that way because I saw numerous people arriving at the clubs trying to listen to decent music during the deck party where the wedding band was playing.  Unfortunately, all the DJ's and other bands were given the time off during the deck party so we were forced to listen to the weddding band. Yuk.
