They are only on for the Nov 24 and Dec 1 sailings.

 

I’m on-board on the week before you and it will be L.A.Vation a U2 tribute band playing in the music hall.

 

 

My family is on the 12/22 sailing. Ken, did you get this info from the cruise line? I have been searching tribute bands on the web to see who would be playing and sent Royal an email but have not received a reply. On the L.A.Vation website it says they are in the Netherlands on 12/23, so they would have to meet the ship in a port after that? I am a part time rock musician, and unfortunately for me, U2 is not one of my favorite bands😊.

I had sent Royal an e mail and received a response a couple of days ago.  That does certainly seem odd with the schedule that is posted on the bands website but I suppose that the band could meet up with the ship in San Juan.

Any word on the pre cruise?

 

Maybe just a media sailing?  Hochberg is on it..it's from Port Everglades since Terminal A is tied up Friday and Saturday.

Do you know why they played n 270 and not the music hall, that seems strange

When I was on Anthem last year DSB Band played several shows - at least one in the Music Hall and then one in Two70.

I like about halfway back, I find my field of vision is compromised if to close.

 

However, aisle is still the most important.

 

Also, the left side of left aisle is my first choice 

 

You are the Cats expert so I am going to do what you recommend.

Ken

The show I saw in 270 may have been an extra show. I may have missed them if it was clashing with something else when they were in the Music Hall.

It was the Easter sailing this year and the ship was full!

Cheers!

I guess L.A.Vation will be joining us in a port as I just received confirmation from Royal:

I am happy to advise that the tribute band L.A.Vation is currently scheduled to be playing for your sailing. While all entertainment is subject to changed based on entertainer availability, they will be joined by comedians Don Grey and Rodney Johnson, ventriloquist Ronn Lucas, and ice star Sergii Shcherbinin as entertainers for your time onboard in addition to our larger productions.

The added level above the bridge took some time for me to figure out what you were referring too. It's subtle, unlike the box sitting up onto of Norwegian ships.  It looks as if it has been there all along.

I got a reply from my Genie for the 12-1 sailing and she still does not know what band, if any, will be on our sailing.

😓

How do you contact your Genie before the cruise?

I can't wait to see the pictures and video tours.  The earliest will be Thursday.

 

Does anyone know where the initial employee Shakedown cruise will be going (port)?

Yes, the Genie contacts you initially.  We have consistently gotten our first Genie comm about almost exactly 30 days prior to the sail date.

 

BTW, the Genie did finally let me know that the Tribute Band (which I think will actually be more of a cover band) will be Phoenix.  This is the same band that recently played on the President's 50 year anniversary cruise.  I can't wait to go to a concert in the new Music Hall !
