Princess Cruises has announced that its upcoming mega ship, Sun Princess will feature three original circus performances in collaboration with Cirque Éloize.
The immersive performances are being created specifically for The Dome, a new top-deck, multi-level entertainment venue that is brand-new for the cruise line aboard Sun Princess. The Dome offers natural sky views both day and night, and utilizes state-of-the-art lighting effects and a hidden stage with technical capabilities to deliver the perfect setting for three shows that will feature eight acrobatic and aerial performers.
Cirque Éloize has been a driving force in Montreal’s cultural scene for 30 years, and its shows have been seen by over five million spectators. The contemporary circus combines the circus arts with music, dance, technology, and theater to captivate audiences that are seeking meaningful entertainment.
Three 20-30 minute shows will rotate on Sun Princess in The Dome. They’ll involve aerial hoops, an aerial pole, bungee, Cyr wheel, silks, contortion, and more.
A journey into the magical space between ocean and sky where the spirit of love leads the artists through time and space, highlighting both the real and the surreal, bringing them to realize that no matter how far they go, the spirit of love is always with them.
Come Fly Away
This performance evokes notions of the 1950s era Rat Pack and the vibrancy of love. A whimsical retro spectacle in which the bandleader — aided and abetted by his ensemble of misfits — falls head over heels for an audience member. It’s a celebration of the lost art of the chase in which all are willing participants.
This upbeat show celebrates the beauty and joy of living life in full color. A kaleidoscope of characters work together in harmony, each contributing their talents to create a beautiful masterpiece, reflective of the vibrant heartbeat of the performers and the audience alike.
Cirque Éloize performances will be complimentary and available to guests on a first come, first served basis.
The 175,500 gross ton, 4,300-guest Sun Princess is currently under construction at the Fincantieri shipyard in Italy. Inaugural 2024 Sun Princess voyages in the Mediterranean, Europe, and the Caribbean are open for booking.
