Throwback to the 80’s with Themed Cruise Music Festival


Get ready to shake the boat for what will be the coolest 80’s music festival at sea.

The fabulous and flamboyant pop music of the 1980s will be celebrated as Royal Caribbean’s Navigator of the Seas takes passengers on an unmissable three-night Throwback roundtrip Southampton/Southampton, including a fantastic opportunity to enjoy a great day ashore in Bruges in October 2018.

Throwback will feature an all-star line-up of chart-topping legends including headliners The Human League, OMD and Erasure’s Andy Bell, along with Jason Donovan, DJ Pat Sharp (as resident maestro DJ), Chesney Hawkes, Sonia, and Imagination featuring Errol Kennedy, while Captain Sensible will help steer the ship back to the 80’s.

This luxurious Throwback cruise is produced by Floating Festivals, with assistance from Royal Caribbean. Live music promoters Cuffe and Taylor are sourcing the major star artists and attractions.

Unlike other charter cruises, Floating Festivals will not just replace the usual cruise ship entertainment programme, they will transform the ship into a full 1980s experience. From hit movies and TV shows of the time to your favourite DJs and pop acts, passengers will be taken right back to the decade of fun pop.


As well as being part of the UK’s first ever Floating Festivals passengers will be able to enjoy all the amazing features of the Navigator of the Seas including a 9-hole miniature golf course and separate Golf Simulator, the unique FlowRider surf simulator, the signature Royal Caribbean Rock Wall, ground-breaking virtual balcony cabins, the Vegas style Casino Royale, luxurious Vitality Spa & Fitness Centre, three pools, six whirlpools, Video Arcade and a selection of luxury Boutique Shopping experiences.

All Floating Festivals packages also include complimentary à la carte restaurant and buffet dining for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day. Speciality Restaurants are also available for an additional charge.
