Cruise News: Popular Performers at Sea

Nov 19, 2015 | By Lauramay LaChance


Carnival LIVE brings some of the hottest names in country, rock and pop on board and they just released some of the acts for 2016. Journey, Trace Adkins, Gladys Knight, and KC & The Sunshine Band will entertain guests on 11 different ships next year. Carnival LIVE tickets for 2016 range from $40 to $75 for general admission. We saw an amazing performance by Rascal Flatts in Cozumel, Mexico this year on Carnival Breeze.




OK, so he’s not going to steal it, but he is going to be on board all Carnival holiday cruises throughout the month of December. The Grinch will be decked out in his signature “Santy Claus” costume and play out his typical tricks to “stop Christmas from coming!” Children will even complete their own Grinch Good Deed Tracker and just like The Grinch famously says, it will grow their hearts “three times in size.” And just in typical Grinch style, be prepared for playful disruptions all throughout your cruise.

The luxury cruise line announced their plans to introduce a series of 11 – 14 day sailings between Vancouver and Alaska starting in 2017. The 450-guest Seabourn Sojourn will provide cruisers with an intimate cruising experience to Alaska.


Grammy® Award-winning singer and songwriter, Gregory Porter, will be headlining the third Blue Note jazz-themed Transatlantic Crossing on October 25, 2016.

Holland America has been in the headlines a lot this year as six of their ships have received a total of nine perfect scores. If you’re interested in getting on ms Eurodam, now is the time because she is sailing around the Caribbean.



Norwegian Escape had her Inaugural sailing out of Port Miami this past Monday. A priest and a rabbi blessed her just before her Godfather Pitbull broke the bottle of champagne on her hull. We want to wish Norwegian Escape happy cruising! Here's a first look at the entertainment on Norwegian Escape.
