We used Le Soleal from the Ponant group which was not one of the choices so I just picked the first one so the review could be submitted. The ship was excellent with the exception of the dance band. It's the same problem on all ships these days. The band starts out the evening with a familiar slow waltz tune and there are 25 couples on the floor. The band's next number is something that no one recognizes so about half the people sit down and the other half struggle through the tune. As the band continues to play other non-recognizable tunes (for the age group), the dance floor becomes vacated and soon everyone retreats to their room to watch CNN. Note: please pick bands that play music that we as baby-boomers recognize and will dance to.
