Broadway director and Cirque Dreams founder Neil Goldberg has devised three new dinner and show concepts which will make their respective debuts on three Norwegian Cruise Line ships over the next few months.
Drawing upon mesmerising costumes, choreography, musicians, acrobats and a rotating roster of performers, the three new shows aim to deliver a unique show each evening. This will coincide with the launch of new menus at each of the three associated restaurants, with the entertainment to begin immediately after dessert and coffee are served to diners.
The three new shows include:
Cirque Dreams Epicurean: Adopting an Avant-garde style of illusion, superhuman feats and master trickery, this 45-minute show aims to lure guests to explore their imaginations.
This show has been developed to fit within the Spiegel Tent Theatre which features on Norwegian Epic following the ship’s modernisation as part of the line’s Norwegian Edge fleet upgrade program. Cirque Dreams Epicurean also features a more casual lineup of amusing and interactive warm-up entertainment which gets the guests in the mood before showtime.
You’ll find Norwegian Epic sailing round-trip in the Mediterranean through the upcoming Northern Summer, with guests able to embark their cruise from both Barcelona and Rome.
Cirque Dreams Jungle Fantasy: This forest and nature-themed performance opens up the power of Mother Nature to guests and provides a look at the world’s most beautiful natural creations. This comes through a series of dramatic and theatrical acts along with sculpted costumes and the transformation of the theatre to best reflect a natural environment.
This show was the first of the Cirque variety to have performed on Broadway & been adapted for a cruise ship. It will feature onboard Norwegian Breakaway on the ship’s round-trip sailings from New York to the Caribbean, which depart every week.
Cirque Dreams and Steam: Brooding and deep, this show explores extreme creativity, punk and gothic fashions, variety acts and illusion, designed to amaze audiences cruising on Norwegian Getaway during the ship’s upcoming stint in Europe.
Cruisers will find this show taking place within the ship’s Illusionarium from May this year when Getaway begins cruising Scandinavia, Russia and the Baltic capitals from Copenhagen.
