The latest Broadway adaptation by Royal Caribbean Productions will bring Grease and all its crowd-pleasing music to the high seas, including “Greased Lightnin’,” “Summer Nights,” “Beauty School Dropout,” and more.
Grease will debut aboard both the Harmony of the Seas and Independence of the Seas in 2016. “Grease is a show that speaks to families of all ages and is sure to get guests out of their seats, singing and dancing, which is why we made the unprecedented decision to have it debut on Harmony and premiere it onboard Independence immediately, starting in July,” said Nick Weir, Vice President, Entertainment, Royal Caribbean International. “As the first cruise line to bring Broadway performances onboard its ships, it’s only fitting that we would also be the first to bring Grease to the hospitality industry.”

Carnival Cruise Lines recently announced that comedian Kathy Griffin will be the latest act to join the line’s star-studded Carnival LIVE lineup in 2016. The two-time Emmy and Grammy winner will bring her distinctive comedic styling aboard the Carnival Fantasy and then the Carnival Breeze when the two ships are docked in Cozumel, Mexico in February 2016.
Kathy Griffin is famous for using current events and pop culture to build her ever-growing comedic resume, which now includes the Guinness World Record for most stand-up specials. We’re thrilled that cruise lines continue to go after top-tier talent for their live shows, and we can’t wait to see who Carnival books next!
Tickets for Kathy Griffin’s highly sought-after Carnival LIVE performances need to be purchased in advance. General admission tickets are only $50 per person, while VIP passes are $200. VIP ticketholders will have access to seats in the first four rows, plus a commemorative concert pass and exclusive photo opportunity with Ms. Griffin. Both ticket options present a significant discount compared to the going rate for Kathy Griffin’s shows at land-based theaters.

A compilation by The Cruise Web employees.
One of the best aspects of cruising is that you’ll never run out of opportunities to do something new and adventurous (unless you’ve done it all – in which case, stop bragging). Aim to do something that makes your friends back home jealous! Need inspiration? Take a walk on the wild side and explore our favorite adventures!
“I have had many wonderful adventures while cruising. Some of my top memories include snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, caving with glowworms in Dunedin, New Zealand, zip lining in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico and skydiving in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Ice-skating in the middle of the Caribbean is always a fun adventure too!” [Read more →]

I’ve often felt that the most bittersweet hour on any cruise vacation begins once the ship pulls away from port and starts sailing towards its next destination. You brood over all the memories and magic of the day and wish you could have spent just a little more… time. You had a glimpse of paradise, and now it’s gone.
It’s amazing, though, because the moment you step away from that railing, and stop staring at that rapidly shrinking island, it’s like you find yourself suddenly transported onto the nexus of Las Vegas, Broadway, South Beach, and your local ‘Good Times’ bar, all rolled into one! The nightlife on contemporary cruise ships is incredible and simply has to be experienced. [Read more →]
