Entertainment lineups like nothing you’ve seen before.
The glamour, the splendor: onboard entertainment is designed to dazzle. Royal Caribbean International continually defies expectations about what is possible at sea as the only cruise line to feature entertainment across four platforms: stage, ice, water, and air.
Champion athletes perform heart-pounding aerial spectaculars. Ice-skaters amaze with jumps, lifts, and spins. Divers flip into a pool against a backdrop of backlit fountains and the endless ocean horizon. Dancers, singers, and acrobats perform for packed theaters. And it’s all happening in the middle of oceans around the world.
The ice-skating rinks at sea provide the setting for original shows, like Hideaway Heist, featuring choreographed theatrics, intricate costumes, and a cast of top-rated figure skaters from around the globe.
Oasis of the Seas brings the Tony-Award winning Broadway production of Cats to the high seas. Based on T.S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cats was one of the longest running productions on Broadway and is a winner of numerous awards, including seven Tonys, two Oliviers, and a Grammy. It’s part of Royal Caribbean’s commitment to offer not just Broadway at sea but the very best of Broadway—including MAMMA MIA!, Saturday Night Fever, Grease, and We Will Rock You.
Lavish shows and applauded performances are highlights of a Royal Caribbean cruise, and the cruise line spares no expense to offer guests the best onboard entertainment in the industry. The current lineup includes dozens of signature productions, full Broadway musicals, AquaTheater diving spectaculars, ice-skating shows, parades, and a number of aerial extravaganzas—the largest premium entertainment operation at sea.
Coordinating this massive effort is Royal Caribbean Productions, a dedicated entertainment division in North Miami Beach, Florida. The state-of-the-art production facility spans about 130,000 square feet and houses 12 rehearsal studios, ten vocal rooms, and a sizable space for costume production. It’s utilized year-round to support shoreside rehearsals and operations for Royal Caribbean Productions. It serves as the home base for a full-time team and over 1,000 performers on ships around the world.
AquaTheater Dive Shows
Boasting the largest and deepest pool at sea (137,000 gallons of water, 18 feet deep), the Oasis Class AquaTheater hosts heart-pumping high-dive and aerial extravaganzas synchronized with fountain and light shows. Featured water shows include Oceanaria, Oasis of Dreams, The Fine Line, and Let You Entertain Me.
On select ships, the iconic, multilevel Centrums transform into high-flying vertical theaters where daring acrobats perform gravity-defying moves while suspended nearly 60 feet in the air. On Quantum of the Seas, Two70 features a show with aerial acrobatics taking place all around the great room. Add in the Roboscreens that descend from the ceiling, and you’ve got a whole lot of marvels in the air.
Many team members were once shipboard performers themselves, so they are aware of the unique challenges of a production at sea. Finding talent isn’t as simple as holding an open casting call. It takes a 65-city worldwide tour. Videos of the top performers are sent back to the North Miami Beach headquarters, where the team also reviews online submissions.
Once a cast is selected, performers travel to the studio to begin rehearsals. The space can host as many as 12 casts at once, and more than 200 performers move through the facility during any given month. Each cast rehearses for about six to eight weeks before boarding their assigned ship.
Entertainment at a Whole New Level
The entertainment lineup on Quantum of the Seas transcends anything seen before—on land or at sea. This is next-level showmanship. Royal Caribbean has pushed the envelope far beyond the realm of possibility to deliver an array of first-of-their-kind productions and performances that leave audiences spellbound.
Thanks to the magic of Vistarama and Roboscreens, one of Las Vegas’ most beloved bands, Santa Fe and The Fat City Horns, virtually delivers a performance as immersive as being at the live show. High-resolution, 16-camera footage of the band is projected across both technologies, creating a multidimensional experience.
Music Hall is the place for guests to enjoy intimate and exclusive access to live performances while also rocking out in an advanced, contemporary setting. Music Hall offers a wide range of live music showcases, from house and tribute bands to fully produced late night parties, events, and more.
This show in Two70 seamlessly fuses technology with highly trained live performers, aerialists, musicians, stunning visuals, and special effects, resulting in a high-tech, futuristic showcase of mind-blowing entertainment. In this original production, all the activity takes place around the room, completely enveloping guests in an engaging, surprising experience.
Showing in the Royal Theater, Sonic Odyssey is the amazingly sophisticated show that must be seen to be believed. It introduces a brand new form of entertainment that takes guests on a highly visual and experiential journey of music, sound, and performance. Inspired by performance artist William Close and his variety of one-of-a-kind majestic instruments, this show is totally original to Quantum of the Seas.
