Princess Cruises details live shows, part of UK summer sailings

Regal Princess features a large orchestra
MedallionClass ships Regal Princess and Sky Princess will feature music, dance and ‘a large orchestra’ when they sail the UK this summer.

‘Some of our most popular theatre productions will return on our MedallionClass ships for these Summer Seacations, bringing West End quality shows to our guests,’ said Tony Roberts, vp, Princess Cruises UK & Europe.

Sky Princess 

‘Rock Opera,’ which debuted on the 3,660-passenger Sky Princess in late 2019 and was created exclusively for Princess Cruises, will be performed. It includes avant-garde fashion with a musical soundtrack spanning classic rock, opera and musical theatre, sung in English, Spanish, Latin and American sign language – a first for the cruise line.

Award-winning performer Ross Hunter will make a special guest appearance. 

In Sky Princess’ Take Five will appear a live jazz trio; blockbuster films will air on the 300 sq. ft. Movies Under the Stars screen.

Regal Princess

Production shows  on board Regal Princess are to include ‘Sweet Soul Music’ and ‘Bravo,’ which combines classic light opera with popular music. 

Backed by a large orchestra, opera singer and actress Shelley Rivers will feature, renowned for working alongside Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber and Glenn Close.

Passengers on both vessels will be able to participate in Games Under the Stars, location-based scavenger hunts and have the ability to stream movies, shows, games and music through MedallionNet Wi-Fi.

Scenic UK cruises

Regal Princess and Sky Princess will sail roundtrip from Southampton between July and September this year, offering scenic UK cruises and voyages with stops in Liverpool, Belfast and Greenock, with itineraries ranging from three to seven nights.

Further details of Princess Cruises’ entertainment programme is expected later this month.
