Grease to Headline on Harmony of the Seas and Independence of the Seas

Cruise News – Dec. 1, 2015

Royal Caribbean International has announced that Broadway’s hit musical Grease will take the stage aboard both Harmony of the Seaswhich debuts in May 2016, as well as Independence of the Seas. The all-new, never-before-seen stage production, specially adapted by Royal Caribbean Productions, will feature a soundtrack of favorites such as “Summer Nights,” “Greased Lightnin’,” “Look at Me, I’m Sandra Dee,” “Born to Hand-Jive,” “Beauty School Dropout,” and others.

Grease is a show that speaks to families of all ages and is sure to get guests out of their seats, singing and dancing, which is why we made the unprecedented decision to have it debut on Harmony and premiere it aboard Independence immediately, starting in July,” said Nick Weir, Vice President, Entertainment, Royal Caribbean International.

As part of its award-winning Broadway offerings, Royal Caribbean guests can take in performances featuring the greatest hits of legendary rock group Queen with We Will Rock You on Anthem of the Seas; the storytelling of ABBA’s timeless songs in Mamma Mia! on Allure of the Seas; one of the world’s most beloved musicals, Cats, on Oasis of the Seas; the toe-tapping disco beats of Saturday Night Fever on Liberty of the Seas; and now, Grease on Harmony of the Seas and Independence of the Seas.
