Industry giant Royal Caribbean revealed yesterday that the smash hit musical MAMMA MIA! will be featured onboard their new ship, Quantum of the Seas.
Days after the announcement that Anthem of the Seas will be sailing from Southampton, we can now reveal that her sister ship will showcase the award winning Broadway hit, MAMMA MIA!
The musical is based on the hit songs of renowned Swedish group, ABBA. One of the most popular musicals of all time it has been extremely successful in London’s West End and New York’s Broadway, with over 54 million people around the world falling in love with this fantastic show. The heart-lifting story tells the tale of a daughters quest to find her real father on the idyllic islands of Greece.
Royal Caribbean is the only cruise line to boast Tony Award-winning Broadway musicals at sea. Oasis of the Seas features Hairspray and Allure of the Seas showcases Chicago.
Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, Executive Vice President of Royal Caribbean said “The debut of MAMMA MIA! onboard Quantum of the Seas continues to raise the bar of what we offer our guests onboard our latest groundbreaking ship. Since introducing Hairspray onboard Oasis of the Seas in 2009, our Tony award-winning musical productions have been incredibly well-received by guests, and we are proud to expand our Broadway at sea offerings with our fourth licensed main-stage production – more than any other cruise line."
Quantum of the Seas will debut in November 2014 and sail from the New York area. See our Quantam of the Seas Deals here.
