Belinda King Creative Productions was founded in 1984 and has been trading as a limited company since 1996.
Starting in Asia, the company rapidly expanded to providing international entertainment to top European venues including Le Sporting Club in Monaco and Casinos Solverde Portugal.
In 2001, we partnered with Cunard Line for the launch of the Queen Mary 2 and established ourselves as industry-leaders, bringing Broadway quality productions to the high seas.
Since joining the cruising industry, our shows have featured aboard Seabourn, Holland America Line, Princess Cruises, Crystal Cruises, Silja Line and most recently, Color Line.
Our strong foundation has enabled us to hold a Tier 5 Grade A-Sponsorship with the British Home Office and our cruise division is compliant under the Maritime Labour Convention (MLC).
In October 2020, we were awarded a grant from the UK Government’s Arts & Culture Recovery Fund – recognising our contribution to culture and the viability of our business.
Our productions have featured on 26 different ships across 7 different brands – as well as forming an integral part of launching 9 individual new builds:
- Seabourn Ovation, Encore, Quest, Sojourn & Odyssey
- Holland America Line’s Koningsdam
- Cunard Line’s Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoria & Queen Elizabeth
2020 will see 68 of our shows feature across 11 different ships – including 8 brand new creations.
Internationally recognised for our quality and exceptional attention to detail, we have won various awards including:
- Travel Weekly Gold Magellan for Best Entertainment, Best Luxury Entertainment and Exclusive Production
- Cruise Critic – Best Entertainment
- IoD London Business Awards – Director of the Year
- As well as features in Forbes Magazine, The LA Times and USA Today
Our casts are renowned for achieving some of the highest scores at sea – consistently reaching guest scores of 9/10 and above.
“An Evening With Sir Tim Rice is hands down the best show we have seen on a luxury cruise ship.”
