MSC Cruises' Theme Sailings: Rock Around The Clock, Experience A Piece Of Italy, or Tickle Your Funny Bone

Theme cruises are alive and well aboard MSC Cruises' ships in the Caribbean next year. They've already announced numerous sailings with a theme and now there are even more. From rocking to the oldies to laughing the night away, they've got a whole lot of fun on tap.

Rock-and-roll to the sounds of the oldies featuring The Lettermen and The Fabulous Stingrays while enjoying the sunny skies and balmy breezes of Caribbean ports onboard MSC Poesia for her March 20, 2010 7-night Oldies cruise.

Tony Butala, Donovan Tea, and Mark Preston comprise The Lettermen, who are one of the most popular vocal groups in history. Scheduled for one performance during this rock-and-roll festival at sea, their 45-year career spans big band and the early rhythm and blues music.Take a walk down memory lane with The Fabulous Stingrays, joining in the festivities with performances covering songs from the '50s, '60s and '70s all week long. Participate in an Elvis look-alike contest, dance competitions, trivia games, and lectures about the rock-and-roll era while listening to music throughout the cruise.

The "Eastern Caribbean Dream" itinerary for this unique Oldies Music theme cruise sails roundtrip from Fort Lauderdale and calls at ports in San Juan, Puerto Rico; Philipsburg, St. Maarten; Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands; and Nassau, Bahamas.

Experience a piece of Italy with a celebration at sea onboard MSC Poesia's April 10, 2010 7-night "Festa Italiana" cruise. The sailing features opera singers and contemporary Italian vocal artists as well as the diverse ports in the Western Caribbean. Dance the night away or sit back and enjoy performances by bands playing Italian and Italian-American favorites throughout the cruise. Participate in Venetian-mask making, a pizza-throwing contest, and tarantella dancing--a southern Italian folk dance for couples that is among the most recognized of traditional Italian music. Taste the delicious Mediterranean dishes and learn the secrets to preparing them during cooking demonstrations by top Italian chefs. Other opportunities available to guests include lectures on Italian art and architecture, Italian automobiles, or Italian fashion and design.

Laughter can be the best medicine to cure the winter blues. Experience humor that will tickle your funny bone during a fun-filled celebration at sea onboard MSC Poesia’s Jan 30, 2010 7-night Comedy Cruise. Scott Record’s melodious voice and cavalcade of character impressions will have guests rolling in the aisles. Variety calls Record, “the true definition of ‘multi-talented’…a must see!” The laughter continues later each evening in the MSC Poesia onboard comedy club with performances by the ship’s featured comedians. Guests can also participate in Bonk! an interactive, live game show showcasing general knowledge and physical mayhem while being full of comedy.
