The majority of cruise passengers think that the level of entertainment offered onboard cruise ships is "just right".
A recent study by Cruise Critic revealed that 76 per cent of passengers think cruise providers offer "the right amount of entertainment", with just 17 per cent of people claiming that there is too much going on.
Furthermore, 54 per cent of Britons said that they take entertainment into consideration before booking their cruise holidays.
When asked what type of entertainment is the best, 56 per cent of people said that they enjoyed listening to comedians, while 54 per cent of passengers look forward to watching Broadway-style shows.
Commenting on the findings, Cruise Critic editor-in-chief Carolyn Spencer Brown said: "The cruise companies put a lot of money and effort into providing entertainment for their passengers and it is interesting to note how important this has become as a selection criteria, especially among the Brits."
Cruise Critic recently reported that the number of Britons taking a cruise holiday is likely to be 14 per cent higher this year than in 2007.
Furthermore, P&O Cruises
revealed earlier this month that the cost of cruise holidays has fallen significantly in the last year.
