“Seacations” all the rage.
Once it gets going, hopefully from mid-May, the cruise industry will be very competitive with up to 12 lines competing for British waters only trips.
Quickly announcing its on-board entertainment programme is Princess, as with Cunard and P&O, part of Carnival Corporation, but its UK operation run at arm’s length from the same Southampton offices.
They have come up with a fairly obvious term “seacations”.
Regal Princess and Sky Princess will sail roundtrip from Southampton between July and September, offering “seacations” scenic UK cruises and voyages with stops in Liverpool, Belfast and Greenock, with itineraries ranging from three to seven nights.
Production shows aboard Regal Princess include ‘Bravo’ and ‘Sweet Soul Music’. As one of the line’s top-rated shows, ‘Bravo’ seamlessly combines classic light opera with popular music and the result is an extravaganza that brings the house to its feet.
Dancing amid breathtaking sets backed by a large live orchestra, this Regal celebration delights audiences with such light opera classics as ‘Time to Say Goodbye’ and ‘Habanera’ from Carmen, with contemporary hits such as Adele’s ‘Skyfall’ woven seamlessly into the production. Joining ‘Bravo’ as guest soprano will be opera singer and actress Shelley Rivers, whose theatre credits include performing as Eliza in ‘My Fair Lady’ and working alongside incredible talent such as Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber and Glenn Close.
