If your ideal cruising holiday keeps going long after the sun has gone down, we’ve got five fabulous ships that offer totally captivating entertainment to see you partying through to the small hours.
Norwegian Cruise Line made this ship to dazzle while still offering a relaxed, modern vibe. Receiving the Best Cruise Entertainment award from Frommer’s, it consistently strives to set the bar high with its spectacular, acclaimed Broadway shows, comedy performances, and even adrenalin-filled acrobatics. Perhaps a drink in The Cavern Club, a recreation of the legendary Liverpool club made famous by The Beatles, is more your style.
However, with twelve bars to choose from, including the super-cool Svedka Ice Bar and the casino-featured Cascades Bar, you may want to vary which stunning location you frequent each evening. Conclude your party on the pool deck at the Spice H20 club, where a giant screen projects awe-inspiring visuals that dance with the stars.
Anthem of the Seas
Royal Caribbean have excelled in their mission to ‘Bring on the Bold’ on this mega-ship with a huge variety of innovative features to keep every cruise guest inspired. As your fun-filled day turns into night, it’s probably time to unwind with a cocktail at one of their many bars onboard. Perhaps it’s live piano music in the cosy Schooner Bar or something more upbeat with a salsa-swinging party at Boleros.
But don’t miss out on the world-class productions, including contemporary dance, aerial acrobatics and a full ensemble orchestra. Club converts can finish the night at the immensely cool Two70 Bar or for a more relaxed end to the day, you may like to curl up to a newly released movie at one of the ship’s outdoor film nights.
Living up to its name, Carnival Cruises excel in fun and festivities with their nighttime entertainment. Onboard the Carnival Elation, after some laughs at The Punchliner Comedy Club, a unique vintage-themed cocktail at the Alchemy Bar or a sing-along at the Piano bar, make your way to their Jekyll & Hyde nightclub to practice your moves to the hottest current hits and yesterday’s retro classics. And, with a smaller capacity of 2,000 passengers, you’re sure to make some dancing friends who can help you light up the floor.
Carnival Sunshine continues with the theme of high-energy, fun-filled activity. After a stunning makeover, it’s packed with creative day and night time attractions to keep you buzzing until bedtime. With investments in the latest sound and light technology, Sunshine offers extraordinary shows unlike anything seen on dry land.
Its 80s-themed party night, featuring a Playlist Productions™ show, may entice fans to recapture the flamboyance of this era. Meanwhile, if you’re up for a party under the stars, head on up to the Mega Deck Party, where games, giveaways and dancing ensure a good time. Or for a more chilled vibe, the RedFrog Pub knows how to serve that all-important pint of good beer.
Princess Grand Class
All cruise line entertainment maintains an air of decorum. However, if you enjoy more formality and sophistication of classic cruising while still keeping the wow factor turned up high, Princess Grand Class ships are the ones for you. Expect lavish musicals, opera, and dance production shows, unique to Princess theatres and showcasing top international performers.
For film fans, their Movies Under the Stars®, giant poolside theatre will leave you captivated. Of course, the expert mixologists on board are ready to create craft cocktails or introduce you to one of their award-winning wines to partner your evening’s entertainment perfectly.
