Live cruise ship theatrical productions from POET Theatricals Marine have thrilled over six and a half million cruisers in over five thousand live performances at sea in the last eleven years. The shows have been heralded by the New York Times for their “eye-popping” acrobatics, voted as one of the top acts at sea by Frommers, won three “Best Entertainment” awards from Travel Weekly Magazine, voted “Best Entertainment” by Global Traveler, and won a cruiser’s choice award.

Designed for largest theaters on land, these live productions pushed the envelope in cruise ship theatrical production. The shows featured one of the largest and most complex aerial flying rigs at sea able to fly up to 18 people at one time over both the stage and the audience. Size and scope of the physical sets were also some of the largest at sea, encompassing the entire performance stage and out over the audience, creating an immersive interactive experience in the 1500 seat showroom. Video and projection technologies installed by the POET technical teams seen in the theatrical trailers rival some of the largest rock and roll tours and utilize the same advanced technologies.

Each of the show detail pages of the live productions at sea include:
  • a background of the show’s history at sea including when it opened its first performance at sea, its performance run and on which vessel it was presented
  • Available reviews from cruising public, industry sources and periodicals
  • An overview of the concept behind the show and how it was adapted for performances in a cruise ship theater
  • Performance video trailer showing performances from the show recorded live on stage in the cruise ship’s theater
  • Photo gallery of pictures taken during the performance
  • Information about the original soundtrack (if there was an original soundtrack recorded for the production) including links to the album in the iTunes store and a description of the soundtrack for the show
  • New technologies employed in the creation or performance of the production for performance in the cruise vessel’s theater

The different tabs open up additional information about the shows and the bottom of the page shows related entertainment.
These show detail pages demonstrate actual production applications of our live show adapted for a cruise theater and cruise audiences. The shows detailed above were extensively customized for the vessel’s cruising demographic as well as venue and performer requirements.
