Norwegian Bliss to Feature “Jersey Boys” and MORE in Entertainment Line-Up

By The Cruise Web, Inc.

Beginning next summer, Norwegian Cruise Line will feature Tony Award-winning musical Jersey Boys on Norwegian Bliss. As one of the longest running shows in Broadway history with 11 record-breaking years, Jersey Boys will hit the high seas for its first production at sea as Norwegian Bliss sails to Alaska and then the Caribbean starting June 2018.

"Jersey Boys" on Norwegian Bliss

As the first cruise line to feature branded entertainment in 2010 aboard Norwegian Epic, Norwegian Cruise Line is bringing dazzling displays to life in the Bliss Theater aboard its sixteenth ship, Norwegian Bliss. Starting with the 2006 Tony Award-winner for Best Musical, Jersey Boys, together with the new Alibi comedy club, nightlife venue, a new theatrical cocktail hour experience and a rendition of the legendary Beatles’ Cavern Club venue, the cruise line will work to perfect its outstanding musical sounds while creating new and original shows directed, choreographed and styled by the likes of Warren Carlyle, Isabel Toledo and Ruben Toledo.

Jersey Boys “goes behind the music of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, and follows four blue-collar kids working their way from the streets of Newark to the heights of stardom.” It also features all of their hits including:

  • Sherry
  • Big Girls Don’t Cry
  • Oh What A Night
  • Walk Like A Man
  • Can’t Take My Eyes Off You
  • Working My Way Back To You

The Cuban-inspired Broadway-style musical created by Warren Carlyle will be produced specifically for Norwegian Bliss and will feature costumes by famed Cuban-American fashion icon, Isabel Toledo. The show’s art and scenic designs will be handled by Cuban-American artist, Ruben Toledo.

Another new concept exclusive to Norwegian Bliss is Alibi, a re-imagined comedy and nightclub space transformed into a chic nightclub late in the evening for two family-friendly and mature comedy shows six nights a week.

Happy Hour Prohibition- The Musical will hit the high seas after delighting audiences for nearly two years in New Orleans and New York City. It will be performed on select evenings as a happy hour pre-dinner show and once each cruise as a late night adults-only show in the Alibi Comedy and Nightclub. Guests can savor their own Prohibition era specialty cocktails during the one hour performance.

Lastly, Norwegian’s popular rock and roll venue known as The Cavern Club will bring this popular genre back to life with nightly live performances and a Beatles cover band.

booked for bliss cruise sept 15th 2018. I want to see Jersey Boys,Is there a charge and how do I make a reservation?

Hi Jeffrey,
Thanks for your comment. Jersey Boys is actually free to see on the NCL Bliss! Although you do have to make a reservation, they will have multiple performances throughout your cruise so that there are more opportunities to go see this Tony Award-Winning Broadway show! I hope this answers your question but please feel free to reach out to me if you have any additional questions or comments.

We were on the NCL Bliss this past Dec 2018, and saw Jersey Boys. NCL said that the 7:30pm show would be “family friendly”…lets just say there is no way that was family friendly! They said the F word over 20 times. There were several families and adults who got up and walked out of the performance after a few F bombs. NCL, if you’re going to claim “family friendly” at the 7:30 show, PLEASE follow through with what you advertise.

Hello, and thanks for your comment. I think most of our cruise consultants would agree that Jersey Boys (and Havana, for that matter) are more adult-oriented entertainment options. For future cruises, family or otherwise, please give us a call at 1-800-377-9383 to weigh your options and get our feedback on what might be the best fit for you and your family. Our consultants have lots of personal cruising experience, including aboard an inaugural featuring Jersey Boys performances!

I saw that amazing show twice while on the Bliss. I was very fortunate to meet the star Daniel Hope and had some pics taken with him we had a nice conversation as we had something in common. I also had some pics with two of the other cast members .All very talented young men and very personable. Keep those great shows coming.

Hi Joan, I’m glad to hear you liked the show–the cast is very talented indeed. I hope both the performance and your post-show conversation are something you’ll cherish for years to come! For help planning future cruises, please call The Cruise Web at 1-800-377-9383.
