Favorite guest entertainers and lecturers

Recommended Posts

Dr Roger Cartwright  always has interesting topics

 

We enjoyed some of the solo entertainers that they used to have  ..more on the classical music side

we did see Lovena Fox a few years ago

no others were memorable

We saw Lovena Fox too! She was good. I wasn't impressed with the lecturer on the only other Oceania cruise we were on, which might explain why I don't recall his name. We also enjoyed the crew's production at the end of the cruise. Some of them were better than the paid entertainers!

The best lecturer we have ever had on Oceania was for our 2013 Beijing to Bangkok cruise. Harry Chittick was amazing....not only did he give informative practical lectures about the Far East and its culture but he gave a great lecture on travel photography. His lectures were always “standing room only” and there were no snores to be heard😁

Ken Beatty was one lecturer on our Marina cruise. Enjoyed him a lot.....his wife comes along and helps at the 9am needlework group.

Harry Chittick is a consensus favorite lecturer. Entertainment tends to vary every cruise and year...

Legendary announcer/commentator Verne Lundquist was a guest lecturer when we were on Marina a few years ago. His behind-the-scenes sports stories were one of the highlights of that cruise.

Is there a reason for your question since you just spent 7 mths onboard?

Just curious

 

Usually you do not know  ahead of time who the guest lectures will be or the guest entertainers

(some exceptions apply)

They have been touting our guest lecturer for months, and our cruise doesn't leave until October 30th!

On our cruise coming up we're supposed to have one of the Cooks from Oceania. Jack somebody or another.

Verne Lundquist. I am not a big college sports enthusiast, but my son is very familiar with him. I think he should be entertaining.

No particular reason. I'll be on the Marina in September, 2020 and was curious as to who might be worth going to see. I'm not a big fan of some types of shipboard entertainment (on any cruiseline)...such as magicians, ventriloquists, hypnotists, or production shows, but I do like musical acts and the string quartet. 

 

If I see several positive posts here about a certain person or group then I might decide to see them if they're on my next cruise...that's why I'm asking.  And maybe others are interested too?

 

I did enjoy a couple of the lecturers on the world cruise but wasn't impressed with several others.

I am not a fan of  comedians & magicians either  

Somtimes you do not know  who you will see

Before  they changed the entertainment company they had a lot more solo  musicians   which we enjoyed

DH became friends with some  & still keeps intouch 

Hope you have some good acts

Enjoy

I like comedians if they're clean...not a fan of "adult" humor or bad language. Sometimes hard to find that in a late night show.

You know how some people absolutely hate clowns? Well that is how I feel about magicians!

No, I wasn't meaning that there was any of that on Oceania...was speaking in general.  Have experienced it on a couple of mainstream lines, though.  Just my opinion...not meant to judge others' tastes.
