Turns our singer/actress, Jennifer Hudson, is a Carnival Cruise Line fan. So are a bunch of other well known singers and bands such as Daughtry, Kansas, LeAnn Rimes, Martina McBride, REO Speedwagon, STYX, Trace Adkins and .39 Special. These are just some of the new entertainment options that Carnival will be offering their passengers in the coming months.
Carnival Cruise Lines has a new "Live" series which will bring some of the music industry's best on board Carnival ships for wonderful concert opportunities.
In all, 15 artists are scheduled to perform a total of 49 concerns on eight ships leaving out of three different ports, Cozumel, Nassau and Cataline Island in California. Artists will meet the ship at this specific ports, perform on board and quickly disembark after their shows.
The first concern is scheduled aboard the Carnival Fantasy in April, 2014.
How do you get your hands on these tickets? You can purchase them right through Carnival's dedicated shore excursion system. Passengers will have the option of purchasing them prior to sailing or on board and that's based on availability. You can find a full list of events at www.carnival.com/carnivallive or www.carnival.com/live-entertainment/tour-dates.aspx
Tickets will cost anywhere from $20 to $40. VIP tickets will also be sold for upwards of $100 to $150. VIP ticket holders will enjoy a meet and greet with the artist as well as a photo opportunity and seating in the first three rows of the venue, not to mention a commemorative concert pass.
Carnival is also making plans to standardize their in-house bands. They will be adding both male and female lead singers, diversifying their play lists and adding more interaction with passengers. Nine Carnival ships already have the new band set up and Carnival is hoping to have all ships participating by the end of this year.
