ENTERTAINMENT


ENTERTAIN YOU T


LET US


Goodbye cabaret, hello comedy – and a lot more besides. Jane Archer looks at the latest in onboard entertainment


he times really are a-changing when it comes to cruise ship entertainment as companies up the


ante and move away from the cabaret acts of old in favour of bringing big-name artists and shows on board. These days, passengers


can watch Mamma Mia! on stage on Royal Caribbean International’s Allure of the Seas or the musical Rock of


Ages on Norwegian Cruise Line’s Norwegian Breakaway. They can rock with chart- topping bands, be wowed by acrobats and laugh with well-known comedians. New this year, Crystal Cruises has teamed up with award-winning producer Kevin McCollum to take its entertainment to a new level by bringing Broadway artists and directors known in the US onto its ocean ships


Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity. The downside of more


professional entertainment is that it is no longer always free. Passengers who want to see the stars often have to pay, although ticket prices are very reasonable compared with charges on land. This summer, for instance,


Boyzlife team Brian McFadden and Keith Duffy will be performing in the


Limelight Club on P&O Cruises’ Britannia. Their shows cost from £49 including a three-course dinner. Chesney Hawkes, of chart-topping The One and Only fame, will be playing the Limelight Club on the same cruise – a 14-night voyage departing Southampton on August 6. His shows cost just £25 including dinner. Coming up this year, MSC Cruises will have the





Rock of Ages on Norwegian Breakaway
