Grease is the Word at Royal Caribbean


Rydell High is coming to Royal Caribbean International.

The cruise line reports that Broadway’s hit musical Grease will hit the stage aboard Harmony of the Seas (pictured under construction at the STX France shipyard), sailing across Europe as of May 2016, and Independence of the Seas, which returns to its homeport in Southampton, England next summer. The all-new production, specially adapted by Royal Caribbean Productions, will boast a soundtrack of crowd favourites such as “Summer Nights,” “Greased Lightnin’,” “Look at Me, I’m Sandra Dee,” “Born to Hand-Jive,” “Beauty School Dropout” and more.

“Grease is a show that speaks to families of all ages and is sure to get guests out of their seats, singing and dancing, which is why we made the unprecedented decision to have it debut on Harmony and premiere it onboard Independence immediately, starting in July,” said Nick Weir, vice-president, Entertainment, Royal Caribbean International.

As part of Royal Caribbean’s Broadway offerings, guests of the cruise line can also take in performances featuring the greatest hits of legendary rock group Queen with We Will Rock You on Anthem of the Seas, the storytelling of ABBA’s timeless songs in MAMMA MIA! on Allure of the Seas, CATS on Oasis of the Seas, and Saturday Night Fever on Liberty of the Seas.
