Dear DCL, please...

I would love to have ballroom dancing lessons during the day for adults please. Free classes or a small fee like the tastings.

What would you like to see/experience on the ships?

The entertainment staff could hold drama or improv workshops or mini shows.


Ps give more room on the end of cruise survey to write comments.

Send them an email...or two or three! Comments made in emails do get reviewed and if commentsvare made about specific cruise staff it does get back to them!

I'm game for ballroom lessons! The drama ideas are great too!

I thought I had read somewhere that they did indeed offer ballroom dancing lessons already on longer cruises - I was kind of looking forward to that ... Not true?

Funny, I was just thinking that they should offer ballroom dancing classes like they do on other cruise lines. We just got off the Wonder (9th Disney cruise) and I really think they need to offer more as far as entertainment/activities throughout the day and evening.

Our Panama Canal cruise last December had ballroom dancing classes (which we managed to miss each time), and late in the cruise there was "dancing with the officers" in the atrium. We watched for a while, and it really was very nice!

On our next long cruise, I think I'll pay a bit more attention to the schedule and try to do this if it's offered.
