On the Mariner, no different to most cruise ships, the passengers are provided with a few different types of entertainment. Some of them are not my cup of tea, but I was surprised by a couple of the stage shows, they were a lot of fun and the cast did seem to enjoy putting the shows on.

The first show that I attended (late after dinner) was Film Flashbacks.

Cirque Rock’n’Roll was meant to be have been shown earlier in the cruise, but due to rough seas, was postponed until the last night when we were alongside in Lima. I did not take any photos of the aerialists as even without a flash my camera emits a bright light that could be distracting. The aerialists are former members of the Cirque du Soleil Troop and put on a great show that was very well supported by the rest of the cast. This was a great show with one exception, the male lead singer dressing as the Fonz whilst singing an Elvis song, the should be a law against this sort of thing, penalty keelhauling.

The on-board band is call the Regent Signature Orchestra, same for all Regent ships, playing a variety of music from swing through jazz, then contemporary and pop. They also provide the music for the stage shows. A busy and talented bunch of musicians.
