The Throwback Experience
Superstar Headline Concerts
Each night, our headline acts Marc Almond, Jimmy Somerville & The Jacksons Salonga will perform in the largest auditorium on the ship, The Royal Theatre. Artist shows are approximately 50-60 minutes long and performed three times across the cruise so that every guest will see every headline show. Seating is not allocated but runs festival style in terms of a first come first served basis. There is no need to book in the shows, as they will be allocated around your dining time and your show schedule will be communicated closer to the festival.
