NCL PRODUCTIONS ONBOARD THE NORWEGIAN JADE

NCL PRODUCTIONS ONBOARD THE NORWEGIAN JADE Raising the bar of excellence in Entertainment for cruisers... with unprecedented results!

Cruise lines have surely been able to conquer their own space of respectability in the showbiz world and that is already a big achievement. Moreover the quality of their productions is constantly rising, to the point that they are seriously approaching the same level of productions in theaters on terrafirma that are currently considered to be the state-of-the-art. That's a remarkable achievement, considering that a stage on a cruise ship is more confined and is 'moving'. With larger fleets, larger ships and broader audiences, thinking 'big' doesn't represent an issue anymore for the cruise companies and this new trend has had its greatest impact on entertainment itself.
