Norwegian Cruise Line’s 16th ship – Norwegian Bliss – will sail to Alaska and the Caribbean from June 2018, with the 2006 Tony Award® winner for “Best Musical,” Jersey Boys, headlining on the ship’s main stage, the Bliss Theater.
NCL is also developing an exclusive original musical theatre show – a Cuban-inspired Broadway-style musical created by Tony Award-winning director and choreographer Warren Carlyle, featuring electrifying dance, colourful pageantry and sensational sounds developed by some of the most sought-after names on Broadway today. Carlyle most recently choreographed the Broadway musical Hello, Dolly, starring Bette Midler, and directed and choreographed After Midnight, which earned the Tony Award in 2014 for “Best Choreography” and is currently delighting audiences on Norwegian Escape.
Cuban-American husband and wife, fashion icon Isabel Toledo, and artist Ruben Toledo, will develop the show’s costumes, and art and scenic designs, respectively. Ruben’s work has appeared across the globe including in Vogue magazine, the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
Norwegian Bliss will also feature a new comedy club and nightlife venue, a new theatrical cocktail hour experience, Happy Hour Prohibition – The Musical, and an outpost of the legendary Beatles’ venue The Cavern Club.
