As on most luxe ships, entertainment is not the highest of priorities, and many guests are content to spend their evenings exploring the cocktail circuit, visiting the casino, singing along in the piano bar, or dancing to the ships' elegant musical groups. In the production show area, Regent used to be known for lackluster performances, but lately quality has improved, demonstrating what some imagination and talent will do -- along with a larger budget. Recent shows include Thoroughly Modern Broadway, a mix of musical theater numbers from the 1960s through 1980s; the Beatles tribute Here, There and Everywhere; the outstanding Beyond Imagination, which mixes opera and classical song with sea songs, folk tunes, and pseudo-classical modern hits; the wonderful On a Classical Note, with music by Mozart, Verdi, Rossini, Puccini, Gilbert and Sullivan, and Bizet; and Oh What a Night, with hits by the Four Seasons, Billy Joel, Simon and Garfunkel, Ray Charles, Neil Diamond, and others. Prediction: Regent will soon be known for excellent evening entertainment along with Crystal Cruises.
Occasional sailings provide themed entertainment -- small-group and big-band jazz, for instance, or performances by a chamber group. Check with the line or your travel agent for a schedule of upcoming themed cruises.
