Entertainment Onboard Seven Seas Grandeur
The four new dazzling entertainment offerings will complement the ship’s luxurious accommodations, exquisite dining options, and personalized service.
Celebrating the Tango, a dance that originated in Buenos Aires, Pasión aims to capture the essence of this dance style by blending it with modern hits and dynamic vignettes. Members of the creative team included world-renowned choreographer Francisco Forquera and Broadway costume designer Alejo Vietti. Working with overall choreographer Britt Stewart of Dancing with the Stars, this inclusion of native Argentine creative talent infused the production with unparalleled dance authenticity.
Ignite the Night
Ignite the Night is an unexpected mix of dance, style, and design. Inspired by the visual grandeur of American Idol, the exhilaration of the Video Music Awards, and the contagious energy of Dancing with the Stars, this show will be innovative and exciting while feeling familiar. Dancers bring high energy and captivating performances, choreographed by the incomparable Dancing with the Stars Pro-Dancer Britt Stewart, a true subject matter expert in this field. Ryan Park – who has worked on Broadway productions such as My Fair Lady, The King and I and Fiddler on the Roof – injected red-carpet glamour and excitement with fresh and new haute couture costume design.
Directed by Broadway pillar, John MacInnis, and with music orchestrations and arrangements by Grammy award-winning Jason Howland, Marauder’s Ball is a swashbuckling good time filled with adventure and excitement, all set to the beat of modern music infused with folkloric sea shanties and melodies. This dynamic production will transport audiences into a world of pirate legends and seafaring tales, igniting the imagination and captivating hearts along the way.
Delivering recognizable hits, ICONS is an engaging and contemporary VIP concert experience. It’s a journey through great music showcasing a stunning cast and featuring the music of beloved headliners like The Pointer Sisters, Hall & Oates, Adele, and Celine Dion.
