Acclaimed West End-show “Saturday Night Fever: The Musical” has made its debut aboard Royal Caribbean International’s Liberty of the Seas, the first Broadway show featured on a Royal Caribbean cruise in Europe.
“Saturday Night Fever: The Musical” premiered in the West End at the London Palladium in 1998 and has been seen by more than 10 million people worldwide. On Liberty of the Seas, the story of Tony, the ambitious Brooklyn teen who spends his Saturday nights disco dancing is played by the British actor Lucas Rush and is brought to life on stage in the ship’s state-of-the-art, 1,320-seat Platinum Theatre. The show has been created by Royal Caribbean Productions in association with Robert Stigwood Organisation Ltd. as part of the ship’s recent Royal Advantage revitalization and onboard enhancements.
“We are delighted to offer a West End hit aboard Liberty of the Seas, just in time for the ship’s maiden season in Europe this summer,” said Lisa Bauer, senior vice president, Hotel Operations, Royal Caribbean International. “Exceeding the expectations of our guests is part of the Royal Advantage that we deliver at Royal Caribbean International, and the new ‘Saturday Night Fever: The Musical’ show is set to be a real hit onboard. We can’t wait to see our guests singing the catchy tunes while they are rock climbing, surfing, ice skating and enjoying all the other activities that Liberty of the Seas offers. With all this, and now a true West End show included in the cruise fare, there are more reasons for guests to vacation at sea.”
Based on the hugely popular 1970’s feature film, “Saturday Night Fever,” the storyline and music that created the worldwide disco phenomenon includes cult-classic songs from The Bee Gees including “Stayin’ Alive,” “Tragedy,” and “More than a woman,” and KC and the Sunshine Band’s “Boogie Shoes.”
In addition to “Saturday Night Fever,” Liberty of the Seas has received some of the most popular features that debuted aboard Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas as part of the multi-ship Royal Advantage revitalization and enhancement program. The Royal Advantage delivers a most memorable vacation onboard some of the world’s most innovative cruise ships that sail to exciting destinations and feature the widest array of exclusive and cutting-edge onboard amenities.
