I'm cruising with my best friend (girlfriend cruise!) in September and we are wondering what type of music they play in the dance clubs?

Is it all hip-hop and rap and new music these days??
We are hoping for some oldies/disco/70's/80's music to dance to.....

All contemporary pop/hip hop/house.

You can find the other type of music in some of the other places on the ships though. You won't find too many people dancing though (at least on the cruises I've been on).

We were on the Fascination in November. For one hour was 70/80's music, which mostly consisted of 70s. Then after that, straight hip hop. Like 5 Lil Wayne songs, one Rihanna song, 5 Lil Wayne, back to one Rihanna, and so on and so forth. We left.

On our cruise last year on the Dream, there were certain nights that earlier in the evening...say 8 - 10 they would play different types of music. Then after that it became the hip/hop dance music. This was all listed in the FunTimes!!

Thanks everyone!! I appreciate the advice!
We will try the dance club earlier in the evening, and I'll keep my eye on the Fun Times for music that might interest us

"There's something different about people from the coast of Carolina. It's like we are our own race. We love things people that who aren't from here hate...like the salty water, the sting of a sunburn, the sand. We never see the sunrise but we watch it set from the harbor. Our blood is a mixture of salt water and beer. We love classic rock, country, and Jimmy Buffett. We wear Rainbows, even when its 40* outside. We work hard all week, but we play that much harder on the weekends. We are devoted to our friends, the water, beer, and music. See that's the thing I have learned about being from the coast...I could never guess where life will take me, but I will never forget where I came from"
