Celebrity Showstoppers

Putting the spotlight on onboard entertainment.

Celebrity Showstoppers Feature

It comes as no surprise that the entertainment on board Celebrity Cruises has garnered award-winning attention, such as Best Cruise Line Entertainment 2014 from Global Traveler and the 2014 Gold Magellan Award for Entertainment from Travel Weekly. That’s because it has all been designed with modern luxury in mind, translating to A-list producers and writers forging bold new trends, producing shows, concerts, and happenings that amaze at every turn.

“Our discerning and well-traveled guests want modern luxury in all aspects of their Celebrity cruise vacation, including their entertainment,” says Becky Thomson Foley, the cruise line’s Director of Entertainment. “We are continuing to raise the bar by unveiling an array of shows that vary from groundbreaking and contemporary to magnificent and beautiful—all with lighthearted and humorous story lines, popular music, and unique choreography.”

Aerialists spin through the air.

Love dance, comedy, music, theater? There are eighteen shows that combine all those genres and more, breaking every rule in just the right way. And all were created exclusively for Celebrity by some of the most accomplished producers in the world. Elyria, a late-night extravaganza, transports guests to a dreamlike world full of wit and mischief. iMagic is a modern luxury take on illusions complete with iPads to tell a wondrous story.

To produce the new shows, Celebrity partnered with some of the best names in entertainment to create Broadway-worthy spectacles. Among them is William Baker, who has created and directed global tours and music videos for the likes of Rihanna and Britney Spears, and Steve Anderson, musical director, producer, and writer for talented artists such as Kylie Minogue and Susan Boyle.
