Oceania Cruises recently announced new show-stopping entertainment options with its new line-up of Broadway-caliber entertainment, the first for Oceania. The shows will debut on Vista, Oceania’s newest ship and the first in its new Allura Class.
With a completely reimagined entertainment program, the three uniquely designed shows will be introduced when the ship launches in May 2023. Headliners, The Anchor Inn and Into the Night are Broadway-caliber, immersive-style productions, featuring recognizable songs by some of the world’s most beloved artists.
Contemporary dance numbers are led by renowned “Dancing with the Stars” pro dancer and choreographer Britt Stewart.
“I’m honored to have the opportunity to develop innovative shows for Oceania Cruises, pushing limits on creativity and theatrics, assembling a star-studded team with credentials spanning television, movies, Broadway, the West End and beyond, resulting in programs that are truly fresh and fun for Vista,” shared Kai Alan Carrier, Director of Artistic Theatrical Entertainment, a new role created at Oceania Cruises to elevate entertainment offerings. “
The three main productions will each have a distinct personality, with a fourth show to follow later in the year. Created by a team dedicated exclusively to each of the shows, an extensive team of performers, producers and technicians has been involved in bringing Oceania Cruises’ newest entertainment to life.
Oceania recently revealed its trendy new mixology program, which will also debut on Vista.
Into the Night, choreographed by Britt Stewart, is a dance-centric show featuring an unexpected mix of dance, style and design meant to invoke the excitement of the Video Music Awards, the glamour of “American Idol” and the high-energy drive of “Dancing with the Stars.”
Headliners takes guests on a VIP concert journey with an impressive cast performing some of the most recognizable songs in the world. Led by Vista’s onboard vocalists, and complete with fun choreography, guests will have an unforgettable night of music from some of their favorite artists, such as Cher, Celine Dion, the Bee Gees and Adele – in a way they have never seen before.
The Anchor Inn is a light-hearted UK-centric song-and-dance performance with a sprinkle of West End flare. Set in the lively Anchor Inn Pub, a group of regulars celebrates good times, sporting losses and romantic wins to the tune of chart-topping hits by artists like Dusty Springfield, Rod Stewart, Madness, Shirley Bassey and Tom Jones. This hand-clapping, toe-tapping production will leave guests feeling decidedly British, no matter where they are sailing.
An additional edutainment-style production titled The Music Triangle, will open later in 2023. It will tell the roots story of nearly all music we love today.
Vista Sets Sail in May
Oceania Vista is the first ship in Oceania’s Allura Class and will set sail in May 2023. This elegant ship offers a mixture of both grand and cozy spaces with a room for every mood and purpose, whether one seeks an intimate getaway spot to enjoy a quiet read, a tony bar for evening cocktails or to dance the night away with newfound friends.
Vista will accommodate 1,200 guests and be staffed by 800 officers and crew, offering industry-leading space and staff-to-guest ratios of two staff members for every three guests.
In January 2023, Oceania announced the arrival of Allura, the second 1,200-guest Allura Class ship. Debuting in 2025, Allura is the eighth vessel for the line and the sister ship to Vista.
