The piano bar entertainers that are most successful have a repertoire from contemporary artists such as Billy Joel, Elton John, The Eagles, The Beatles, Jimmy Buffet, and James Taylor, just to name a few.
Additionally, contemporary country, sing-a-long favorites, name that tune trivia’s, theme sets, other activities and one-hit wonders from the 1950’s through the present all work well in piano bars. Please note that piano entertainers whose repertoire consists primarily of show tunes, cabaret music, and jazz standards are really not what we are looking for.
As a core part of onboard music program, the Piano Bar Entertainer keeps the party going nightly in our Piano Bar, offering a unique high energy and interactive experience which drives drink sales and the guest’s enjoyment of their vacation.

BRISTOL theatre casting…

This is an amazing opportunity for young people across the UK South West to get involved in the creation and development of a professional production.
In the darkest days of World War Two, a lifeboat filled with evacuees is adrift in the Atlantic – their passenger liner sunk by German U-boats. As darkness falls, and their rations dwindle, fear, superstition and madness start to take hold. The children become convinced there is a traitor in their midst – but which of them is it? As hours turn into days, it becomes clear that not all of them will make it out of there alive. Inspired by a terrifying true story, this new adaptation is a parable for our troubled times. “The Raft Of The Medusa” was German playwright Georg Kaiser’s last play before his death in 1945, and reflects his despair as Europe tore itself apart. This new adaptation by award-winning playwright Fin Kennedy anatomises the psychology of hysteria, as Europe once again enters a period of paranoia and blame.
