Default What is the meaning of "cabaret" style

in their entertaining? No spectacular shows-just singers, musicians and maybe comedians?

Their emphasis is on lecturers?

Not that I think cabaret means lectures but do.they not have spectacular Las Vegas/Broadway because their ships don't emphasize the entertainment?

just saw your post
Usually they are 1 person acts like a magician solo musician the show lounge is small & have tables with a few chairs around like a private club atmosphere

If you google the ship name you might find some photos of the lounge
Oceania & Princess also have the same small ships known as R-Ships

Right - a "cabaret" act is generally a singer with a piano player doing torchy ballads. It can also be an impressionist, comedian, etc.

But it is more small-cast - not big showtime shows, which can be a waste of money for small cruise lines since they rarely rate in the ratings anyway.

I fully agree with the other replies in their interpretation of the term 'cabaret'.
On similar ships in the past we have had After Dinner speakers, a small production theatre/er show of Noel Coward's Private Lives, music "Tribute" acts, etc.
These ships do have guest lecturers, but they are usually scheduled totalk during the daytime on days at sea.

It is while off now, but we are travelling on Azamara Journey in August, so will give you a 100% factual answer after that - if I can find this post of course

Hope this helps,
