Ever dreamt of mingling with the undead while cruising the ocean? Well, dreams do come true! The iconic “Beetlejuice” musical is ready to enchant passengers aboard the Norwegian Viva, a ship whose very name celebrates life. So, dust off that “Handbook for the Recently Deceased” and get ready for a spooky voyage! 🌊
A New Wave of Entertainment
David J. Herrera, the soon-to-be president of Norwegian Cruise Line, expressed his excitement, saying, “Our aim is to elevate our guests’ experiences. And entertainment is a cornerstone of that vision.” And boy, are they delivering on that promise!
Spooky Surprises at the Announcement
At a recent event in New York’s Chelsea Piers, Beetlejuice and Lydia Deetz stole the show with a snippet of the catchy “Say My Name.” And guess who crashed the party? None other than Harry the Hunter! The event even featured a “Dinner for the Recently Deceased,” reminiscent of the iconic film scene. And the pièce de résistance? A delectable beef dish, artfully presented on what looked like… blood spatter!
Broadway Magic on the Ocean
Starting this August, passengers on the Norwegian Viva can relish the 90-minute Broadway adaptation of Tim Burton’s 1988 masterpiece. And here’s the cherry on top: the actual Broadway cast will be performing! With cutting-edge special effects and lighting, it promises to be a visual treat. “Beetlejuice” will be in good company, joining the ranks of “Six” and “Jersey Boys” – two other Broadway sensations gracing Norwegian’s stages.
More Than Just Musicals
Richard Ambrose, the bigwig of entertainment at Norwegian, confidently stated, “We’re the best in the biz. Our real competition is Broadway and the West End.” But that’s not all! The ship will also feature a live rendition of the game show “Press Your Luck,” the “Ocean Music Fest” jam sessions, and the hilarious Improv @ Sea comedy shows. And for those who love a good performance with their pint, Syd Norman’s Pour House is the place to be!
