Inaugural Caribbean Voyage
December 17 - 24, 2000
The Celebrity Theater is a huge theater, taking up three decks and the entire front of the ship. Sightlines were good in all seats except the very back ones on Deck 4. The audio system though, seemed to be tuned for Deck 4, and was a problem for those sitting in the balcony (accessible from Deck 5 and via staircases at the back of the theatre).
I attended the three production shows:
· "Pure Platinum," a medley of pop songs from the 1940's through the 1990's
· "Classique, A Musical Odyssey," a medley of classics through the ages, and
· "Spectacle of Broadway," a medley of Broadway show tunes.
Celebrity production shows are all alike - glitzy, colorful yet tasteful costumes, and singing and dancing to songs that appeal to most of the guests on board. This is not meant as a negative comment as the shows are excellent and I wouldn't miss one. They are just very, very predictable. Other theater entertainment included a comedian and a pianist. I cannot comment on these as I did not attend.
The Caribbean steel drum band, Onyx, who played frequently
out at the pool and in the Cosmos Lounge was excellent, also,
as was the Young Duo, who performed nightly in the Rendez-Vous
