Seabourn is a luxury cruise brand with small, exclusive ships. The Odyssey – launched in 2009 has a capacity of 400 passengers and the challenge that Seabourn faced was how to introduce entertainment that suited this exclusive environment, had an international feel and was of the very highest quality. Our response was to create – for the very first time for a cruise ship – a contemporary ‘vocal group’ who would perform ‘shows’ for the guests. The group, consisting of five young West End calibre singers and a dance couple to form a cast of 7 to perform five or more distinct shows with original musical scores with a live band. The response has been tremendous from day one and we now produce all of the shows on board Seabourn Sojourn and Seabourn Quest.
"The entertainment has also scored very highly. The theatre is not designed for big Broadway shows, so rather than just scale those down for its cabaret size, we have concentrated on vocalists. We have five top-class singers who are going down a storm with passengers.”
