Kilman was among the employees who left in a significant Norwegian downsizing in late March.
During his more than six years as director, entertainment and product development at NCL, he conceptualized and implemented much of the entertainment that currently defines Norwegian.
That includes the strategic partnerships with Blue Man Group, Rock of Ages, The Grammy Awards, After Midnight, Million Dollar Quartet, Burn the Floor, Legends in Concert, Howl at the Moon and Levity Entertainment Group (Improv Comedy Clubs).
He also developed the dining and entertainment experiences Cirque Dreams and Dinner, Cirque Dreams Jungle Fantasy, The Illusionarium and For The Record.
Contracting celebrity chef partners Buddy 'Cake Boss' Valastro, Iron Chefs Geoffrey Zakarian and Jose Garces as well as branded restaurants and bars including Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville, Tobacco Road, Pubbelly Boys and the Cavern Club was Kilman's work, too.
For Virgin Cruises, Kilman is consulting on entertainment, a cruise line spokesman said.
