Crystal Cruises’ award-winning Crystal Symphony may be thousands of miles from the glitz of Hollywood, but beginning April 1 on the luxury cruise leader’s 10-day sailing from Beijing to Hong Kong, the ship will debut not one, but two glamorous premieres worthy of the famed red carpets. Crystal Symphony is adding two new shows to its entertainment lineup inside the posh Galaxy Lounge: concert production “Rocket Man: A Tribute to Elton John” and “5-6-7-8,” a brand new dance production that pushes the limits of choreography with a unique twist on the classic song-and-dance shows of old.
“5-6-7-8” features the Crystal Ensemble of Singers and Dancers in a stunning display of jazz, jive, modern, hip hop, tango, tap, contemporary and salsa dancing, set to equally exhilarating musical and vocal performances. “Rocket Man,” which was previously featured on Crystal Serenity, spotlights the impressive talents of stage and screen’s Craig A. Meyer, who pays tribute to the great Elton John as he belts out the superstar’s biggest hits at the grand piano, as Crystal’s own Galaxy Orchestra and Crystal Ensemble complete the adrenaline-filled, rock-and-roll vibe for which Sir Elton John is acclaimed.
Both shows will offer guests a thrilling aesthetic adventure, with spectacularly designed lighting effects and a floor-to-ceiling video wall that draws the audience into the center of the rhythm-packed action.
“The latest and greatest to grace Crystal’s stages highlight the extraordinary caliber and broad range of talent that is featured on board,” says Edie Rodriguez, Crystal’s president. “The two newest shows on Crystal Symphony are stylistically distinct, with production components and quality that will thrill virtually any type of theatergoer.”
All inclusive cruise fares on Crystal Symphony start at $1,935 per person, if booked by April 30, 2015, on a six-day Miami to Colon sailing, departing November 28.
Crystal Cruises is the world’s leading luxury cruise provider, having earned more “World’s Best” awards than any other cruise line, hotel, or resort in history. Crystal Cruises has won “World’s Best Cruise Ship” in Conde Nast Traveler’s Reader Choice Awards for 21 years; voted “World’s Best Large Ship Cruise Line” by Travel + Leisure readers for 19-consecutive years; the “Best Luxury Cruise Line” by Virtuoso, Specialists in the Art of Travel; and both Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity were rated as two of the “Top 5 mid-size ships” by the 2015 Berlitz Cruising & Cruise Ships.
