    We saw the Saturday Night Fever show several times aboard the Liberty of the Seas. The show was amazing and it was the length of a Broadway musical, not the usual 45 minute show. It was consistently great. Hoping to one day see Chicago and Hairspray. Has anyone else seen any of these shows ?

    We saw Chicago aboard Allure of the Seas last year and really enjoyed it. Many years ago, when we lived in Las Vegas, we saw the touring company of Chicago staring Marilu Henner. The show on the ship was a little shorter but just as good.

    I think it’s great that Oasis of the Seas’ cast of Hairspray will be performing at the Tony Awards – it sort of “legitimizes” the product. We all know how fantastic shipboard entertainment can be but most people really don’t. We meet other passengers on every cruise who didn’t go to any shows and they’re amazed when we tell them how good the entertainment is. We try to see every show – and we’re rarely disappointed!
