Harmony of the Seas Sets the Stage for at Sea Entertainment

Royal Caribbean International's newest and hottest ship yet, Harmony of the Seas – sailing to Europe's most popular destinations in the Western Mediterranean from May 2016 – is setting the stage for an entertainment ensemble unlike anything ever seen before in one place. The innovative global cruise line is pulling back the curtain on the unexpected entertainment offerings that come together onboard Harmony of the Seas – from the hot summer nights of Broadway's hit musical Grease, to high-tech, high-definition ice shows in Studio B and jaw-dropping, high-flying, immersive performances at the oceanfront AquaTheatre, and, for the first time, Puzzle Break, an interactive, problem solving group activity, is in a dedicated, fully-produced space, fit for a Hollywood studio where guests are challenged to Escape the Rubicon, and so much more.

The main theatre onboard Harmony of the Seas, the Royal Theatre, is a spectacular, state-of-the-art space that enlists 21st century technology to create a performance environment that supersedes traditional theatres. Seating 1,380 guests, the Royal Theatre is home to two headline shows presented by Royal Caribbean Productions: Columbus, The Musical!, an original Royal Caribbean production created in the spirit of “Spamalot” and “Something Rotten,” the story recounts the imagined history of Marvin Columbus, Christopher's fictional, down on his luck, distant cousin.  Banished from his family's kingdom, Marvin sets sail on a madcap voyage of discovery in the hopes of claiming his own place in history. Grease, the all-new, never-before-seen stage production specially adapted by Royal Caribbean Productions, will boast original choreography, costumes and aerial elements set to amaze the most seasoned theatre goers.  Featuring a soundtrack of crowd favourites such as “Summer Nights,” “Greased Lightnin',” “Look at Me, I'm Sandra Dee,” “Born to Hand-Jive,” “Beauty School Dropout” and more, guests will follow the romantic twists and turns of Sandy and Danny as they navigate the tricky social waters of Rydell High School while keeping their reputations – and relationship – together. 

The theatrical possibilities of the AquaTheatre, the distinct high diving, acrobatic performance space introduced by Royal Caribbean with the Oasis class of ships, are pushed to breathtaking new limits onboard Harmony of the Seas.  New aerial capabilities will elevate the thrilling entertainment repertoire, creating an all-encompassing theatrical experience where the audience will witness heart-stopping balancing tricks on the highline and aerial manoeuvres by acro-artists allowing them to dip into the audience and catapult back to the stage.  Two 10-metre high platforms and the hydraulic-floored pool, the largest and deepest freshwater pool at sea, below will serve as podiums for high-diving, hair-raising aerobatics that AquaTheatre audiences have come to love. 

Ice shows leap into the future on Harmony of the Seas, where world-class skaters perform extraordinary skills as stunning multimedia visuals, audio and state-of-the-art technology provide a sight and sound theatrical extravaganza.  Guests will watch as the surface of the ice rink in Studio B transforms before their very eyes, creating a backdrop of ultra-high definition video, which blends fantasy with reality. The result is a dazzling new canvas on which incredible artists demonstrate their unbelievable skills. New Studio B performances include 1887 – an original Royal Caribbean production about love and adventure that begins in Paris on February 14, 1887 at the height of the career of Jules Verne; and iSkate Showcase, a Studio B ice show unlike any other where Royal Caribbean's talented skaters put their best blade forward in a dazzling showcase of their very best moves set to their own favourite tunes. The cast goes rogue and anything can happen!www.
