Princess Cruises announced on Tuesday their newest onboard entertainment feature, The Voice of the Ocean. This singing competition will bring all of fan’s favorite features from the wildly popular TV show to the high seas, where guests can audition, have rehearsal sessions, and ultimately, have a chance at becoming The Voice of the Ocean.
This singing competition at sea will include:
- Karaoke try out sessions at the beginning of each cruise, for vocalists who are 16 years or older. There will be two opportunities to audition during open karaoke in one of the ships lounges or showrooms. Fellow guests and cruise staff will decide who moves on to compete.
- Selected singers are assigned a mentor who will meet with them during the cruise to rehearse with the Princess Band and back-up singers to prepare for the best possible performance. The mentors will be a Princess musical entertainer or vocalist.
- The Voice of the Ocean Live Show, hosted by the Cruise Director on the last night of the cruise will feature up to nine contestants performing in the Princess Theater for an audience that includes three high-profile team coaches that may include one of our guest entertainers, the Hotel General Manager or even the Captain. Just like the hit TV show, the trio of coaches will listen but not see the performer as they decide to turn their “I Want You” chair to choose the singer to be on their team. Once teams are chosen coaches will then each pick one finalist. From the three finalists, the audience votes for the winner who will be awarded a trophy and most importantly, the title The Voice of the Ocean.
This exciting competition will debut aboard Regal Princess in October, Royal Princess and Caribbean Princess in November, and then eight additional ships will roll out The Voice of the Ocean between January and May.
