In the old days of cruising, “entertainment” might have been limited to a lone guy chained to a piano, belting out the same old hits night after night.  And there are only so many times you can hear “Rocket Man” before your stomach begins to churn.  Today though, cruisers have sophisticated, discerning tastes when it comes to entertainment, which is why ultra-luxury line Silversea recently announced it is launching a unique entertainment program created exclusively for the company by Choozi Entertainment.

Silversea has built its reputation on continually exceeding the expectations of its guests, and that dedication to quality extends to their newest venture. Moving away from the more traditional production shows, Choozi has created a series of new concert-style entertainment options for the line’s seven luxurious ships that run the gamut from rock to Motown to opera.

What’s more, these new entertainment options aren’t just designed to be performed in the elegant onboard show lounges; instead, they’ll also utilize popular spaces like the Panorama Lounge and the ship’s outdoor pool deck.

So just what can guests partake in? Here’s a look at the new production numbers and their venues:

  • Signed, Sealed, Delivered – A musical journey through Motown’s prolific songbook. Capturing the essence of this musical genre, the cast recreates the iconic choreography with a contemporary feel, taking the audience back to a time when America captured the world’s imagination with this fabulous music.
  • High C’s – Classical music and well-known arias take the stage to enchant and delight. From Puccini to Verdi to the most popular songwriters of today, Hi C’s takes the classics and gives them a fresh twist, in the same manner as Il Divo, Josh Groban, and Sarah Brightman.
  • Fabbalicious – The music of ABBA comes alive as the cast faithfully recreates the original sound and iconic look of the legendary ’70s Swedish pop group. Designed to get the audience on their feet, singing and dancing along with the cast, this show celebrates what is arguably the most infectious and fun music of our time.

The Pool Deck:

  • Decades – From Madonna to Lady Gaga, and almost everyone in between, this fun-filled deck party is a tongue-in-cheek look at pop music through the decades … from glam rock, to electronica, to dance pop. Famous stars come to life as costumes are pulled from a trunk and the performers become one music legend after the next.

  • Composer’s Songbooks – The Panorama Lounge will play host to performers who will showcase the songbooks of different composers or musicals within the cozy, intimate atmosphere of this popular gathering spot. Aboard Silver Cloud, guests will be treated to the musical works of John Lennon and Paul McCartney; the creators of Miss Saigon and Les Miserables aboard Silver Whisper; Billy Joel’s songbook from Movin’ On Out aboard Silver Wind; and a selection of today’s newest Broadway musicals aboard Silver Shadow.

These new entertainment offerings have already been rolled out aboard Silver Cloud, and will be featured this month aboard Silver Whisper, Silver Wind and Silver Shadow.  Silversea’s flagship, the elegant and luxurious Silver Spirit, will debut these exciting new programs in March of next year.

“Our guests expect world-class amenities and entertainment is a big part of their overall shipboard experience,” said Christian Sauleau, Silversea’s executive vice president of fleet operations. “By partnering with Choozi, we are elevating the caliber of entertainment and creating variety that will delight our guests and enhance their cruise experience.”

Partnering with Silversea is Christopher Childers, artistic coordinator at Le Reve at Wynn Las Vegas.  Also recruited is Michael Brennan, whose Broadway credits include the smash hits Mamma Mia!, and The Lion King.

“We are honored to be working with the ultra-luxury company of Silversea,” stated Suzanne Childers, president of Choozi. “The decision to bring this level of entertainment aboard their ships will allow their guests the opportunity to experience Broadway-caliber musical theater while cruising around the world.”

Expect these new entertainment options to fit in perfectly with Silversea’s upscale brand of cruising, where you’re free to do as much – or as little – as you’d like.  Either way, you’ll do so in style.
