Passengers aboard Ruby Princess voted and comedian Carlos Oscar was selected as the first-ever winner of the title Princess Cruises Entertainer of the Year.

In addition to performing aboard Princess ships, Oscar has appeared on “The Tonight Show,” HBO, Showtime, and Comedy Central. According to Bill Cosby, “Carlos is a comedy treasure…the only four letter words you’ll hear from Carlos are debt, kids, and help!” As the winner, Oscar received a cash prize of $5,000 and now holds the title of the line’s “2011 Entertainer of the Year.”

Five finalists performed aboard Ruby Princess during last week’s April 8-15 sailing and passengers cast their ballots after judging the live performance from each finalist during the Entertainer of the Year cruise. The Entertainer of the Year cruise will become an annual event, with another sailing for next year to be announced at a later date.

“Congratulations to Carlos on being voted our first-ever Entertainer of the Year,” said Martin Hall, vice president of entertainment. “All finalists did a fantastic job of entertaining Ruby Princess passengers, and they really showcased the variety and quality of the performers on Princess ships.”
