Legend of the Seas Cruise Entertainment Showtime14 January, 2010
The nightly performance onboard Royal Caribbean Cruise Legend of the Seas is a must-see! Get yourself a seat at the That’s Entertainment Theater, Deck 4 straight after dinner (if you are in the second seating at Romeo and Juliet restaurant ending at 9+pm) because by 10pm, the theater will be almost full and the good seats taken (and you are still 30 minutes away from the 10:30pm show)!
The seats are quite comfortable so you can order a cocktail (not free) and wait it out. The shows are usually preceded by announcements of what’s happening tomorrow and cruise videos.
There are different performances for each night of the cruise, each with its unique costumes, songs and dances. The talented Royal Caribbean onboard singers and dancers would perform for the 1st 2 night of the cruise with different themes – Absolutely Feb: a collection of dances and songs covering songs of all genres from the United Kingdom & Swing City: all sorts of Jazz songs! Expect elaborate costumes and stage sets and of course, great dancing and singing!
If you are fascinated by how fast the performers change their costumes and how the backstage looks like, you will get the chance to learn all these secrets during the Royal Caribbean Cruise Legend of the Seas Explorer Academy Back Stage Tour!
You will get to check out the whole collection of wigs and costumes all squeezed into a small backstage. Also check out the setup of costumes and shoes that are prepared for the performers just before they come backstage to change. The secret to speed up each change? – Velcro! No buttons to fiddle with – just rip it and it comes off!
You will also see the complex computer system that control every curtain movement, lights and stage props – all programmed and operated with just a click of a button. 🙂

Getting to go backstage is a real plus. The three cruise lines I worked for wouldn’t allow this. The performers work really, really, hard to put on a good show and getting to go backstage gives the passengers a good look at just what it takes to put on a good show.

Thanks Rebecca,your blog is helpful to me!By the way,I’m wondering about the backstage,they do allow guests to visit it or you did have special request?? =)
Zhiqiang & Tingyi21 February, 2012 at 11:07 pm
its part of the backstage tour they arrange for guests – no need for special request – just turn up at the designated tour timings

Hi Zhiqiang & Tingyi
Thanks for your blog. Excellant write-up
Just one question on the show. What time does the first show start
Your write-up says that the second show starts at 10:30 pm
We are going for My-Time dining and need to plan for the correct time to eat
Zhiqiang & Tingyi1 March, 2013 at 12:57 pm
I think the first show starts at 7.30pm but please check cruise schedule for updated timings since my cruise was more than 3 years ago. There are 2 dinner seatings – 6.30pm and 8.30pm and you will have to pre-book your preferred timing and seating arrangement or you could end up sitting in a common table for 10+ guests. Royal Caribbean Cruise also offers a My Time Dining programme which allows guest to decide on their preferred timing for dinner on the day itself – anytime between 6.30pm and 9.30pm. – See more at: http://www.passportchop.com/reviews/food-reviews/fine-dining-experience-onboard-cruise/
