Norwegian Cruise Line announced that the Tony Award-nominated musical “Footloose,” along with the classic aerial acrobatics show, “Elements,” and the wine-tasting comedy, “Wine Lovers: The Musical,” will be featured on Norwegian Joy, which will make her post-renovation debut in Alaska this May.
“We are very excited to showcase ‘Footloose,’ a feel-good, positive show that encourages people to embrace new ideas, stand up for what they believe in and dance their hearts out,” said Norwegian Cruise Line president and CEO Andy Stuart in press materials.
Debuting for the first time at sea, “Footloose” will also share the main stage with the aerial acrobatics show “Elements.” Taking its name from the four elements of earth, air, water, and fire, “Elements” features magic, high-flying feats, music and dance. In addition, guests can head to the Social Comedy and Night Club to see “Wine Lovers: The Musical.” Known as the world’s first wine tasting musical production, this specialty dining performance provides guests the opportunity to taste a variety of wines at a lunch club-style experience while watching a musical comedy about the joys of wine and love.
Norwegian Joy is set to reposition to North America in late April following an over $50 million renovation that will make her nearly identical to sister ship, Norwegian Bliss, with an extended go-kart race track and new dining and bar concepts. Her first 7-day, round-trip Alaska sailing from Seattle, Washington will depart on May 4, 2019, and she will call to both Glacier Bay and Icy Strait Point during her inaugural season. Norwegian Joy continues with Panama Canal sailings in October before offering weekly sailings to the Mexican Riviera from Los Angeles in November.
