Tony Tillman is Princess Cruises’ Entertainer of the Year

Cruise Director Lisa Ball presents Tony Tillman
with the 2012 Entertainer of the Year award
Four finalists vying for Princess Cruises’ Entertainer of the Year performed aboard Crown Princess during the February 9-16 sailing, the passengers cast their votes, and the winner was Tony Tillman, a singer and dynamic entertainer often compared to Sammy Davis, Jr. or Ben Vereen. A star of “The Rat Pack is Back” tribute show in Las Vegas, Tillman’s fast-paced and energetic style won over the Crown Princess audiences.

Crown Princess passengers attended live performances from each finalist—along with Tillman the finalists included comedy and dance duo Alfredo and Seymour, comedian Sarge, and mentalist Wayne Hoffman—and their vote chose the winner. Tillman was announced as the line’s “2012 Entertainer of the Year” on the final night of the cruise at a celebratory event in Princess’ signature venue, The Piazza and received a cash prize of $5,000 along with the title.

“Congratulations to Tony Tillman for being chosen as our second annual Entertainer of the Year,” said Martin Hall, vice president of entertainment. “All of the talented finalists thoroughly entertained Crown Princess passengers, and they each represented the caliber of guest performers on Princess ships.”
