The Music Walk, located on deck two will be the hub for all things music on the ship and will have three new venues and one existing venue will be brought aboard. Here’s the scoop:

New Entertainment

The World Stage – The only way I can really explain this venue is to look at the photo below. The stage will be in the main show theater, two stories and will have a 250′ long high-definition LED screen. This can bring destinations all over the world into this theater.

Essentially the room can transform from an Italian palazzo for concert to endless high tech production numbers.
