(9:20 a.m. EDT) — Leveraging the experience of sister company Norwegian Cruise Line, Oceania Cruises plans to enhance the entertainment on all of its ships by spring 2017.
The upgrade will result in a full range of musicals, theater and comedy productions, the line said in a press release. The stage shows will be implemented as the ships go through dry dock.
"We are fortunate to be able to utilize the talented entertainment team at Norwegian to enhance the quality and diversity of shows offered on our ships," said Jason Montague, president and COO for Oceania. "Both the level of production and caliber of talent performing on our ships far exceed what we’ve been able to previously offer. I’m confident our guests will be pleasantly surprised the next time they visit our theater onboard."
Passengers onboard the line’s newest ship, 684-passenger Sirena, will be the first to experience the new shows. Sirena makes its maiden voyage April 27, 2016.
The shows slated for that ship include:
Tuxedo: A musical take on the Rat Pack and other crooner songs from Tony Bennett, Natalie Cole and more, this show will be backed by a nine-piece orchestra.
Cabaret Cinema: This show looks at music from the movies, featuring classic movie themes, pop hits and Academy Award showstoppers.
Acoustic Sessions: This live band show will feature musicians presenting pop music an "an immersive musical experience."
On the Floor and Dance: Reminiscent of "Burn the Floor," a popular show on Norwegian Cruise Line, that’s also being rolled out to Regent Seven Seas, this show features music from artists like Gloria Estefan and Michael Buble, brought to life through sultry choreography.
