The Thrills Are Multiplying: Grease To Headline On Royal Caribbean’s Harmony Of The Seas And Independence Of The Seas
Rydell High is heading to Royal Caribbean International! The first cruise line to feature fully licensed, Tony Award-winning Broadway productions has announced that Broadway’s hit musical Grease will take the stage onboard Harmony of the Seas, the most anticipated addition to the fleet yet, sailing across Europe as of May 2016, and Independence of the Seas, Europe’s beloved ship that returns to her homeport in Southampton, England for the summer. The all-new, never-before-seen stage production, specially adapted by Royal Caribbean Productions, will boast a soundtrack of crowd favourites such as “Summer Nights,” “Grease Lightnin’,” “Look at Me, I’m Sandra Dee,” “Born to Hand-Jive,” “Beauty School Dropout” and more.
“Grease is a show that speaks to families of all ages and is sure to get guests out of their seats, singing and dancing, which is why we made the unprecedented decision to have it debut on Harmony and premiere it onboard Independence immediately, starting in July,” said Nick Weir, Vice President, Entertainment, Royal Caribbean International. “As the first cruise line to bring Broadway performances onboard its ships, it’s only fitting that we would also be the first to bring Grease to the hospitality industry.”
In Grease, Sandy Dumbrowski, the new girl in town, and Danny Zuko, the school’s coolest greaser, have a secret summertime romance – but when they return to school, everything is different. Sandy attempts to navigate tricky Rydell High School social waters and catch Danny’s attention again, but Danny is chiefly concerned with maintaining his tough-guy reputation. In the end, the Pink Ladies help Sandy figure out how to win back the leader of the T-Birds.
As part of Royal Caribbean’s award-winning Broadway offerings, guests of the cruise line can take in performances featuring the greatest hits of legendary rock group Queen with We Will Rock You on Anthem of the Seas; the storytelling of ABBA’s timeless songs in MAMMA MIA! onAllure of the Seas; one of the world’s most beloved musicals CATS on Oasis of the Seas; the toe-tapping disco beats of Saturday Night Feveron Liberty of the Seas, and now, Grease on Harmony of the Seas and Independence of the Seas.
Harmony of the Seas combines the best of Royal Caribbean’s trendsetting innovations, entertainment and service – all designed to surprise guests again and again. From sliding down the tallest slide at sea, to exploring exciting new destinations, to dining on the most imaginative cuisine at sea – Harmony will put guests at the helm of an unexpected adventure like no other. Harmony of the Seas is not a cruise ship – it’s a blow-your-mind, can’t-believe-this-is-all-in-one-ship floating adventure, waiting for guests to come seek.
