Are you a fan of the popular TV series The Voice? Well if you are and you are also a fan of cruising you can now take part in the contest yourself. Princess cruises have partnered with the show offering guests to audition to take part in the contest on board. Selected cruises will feature The Voice of the Ocean, where passengers over the age of 16 can sing away to a panel of judges. Passengers will audition at the specially held karaoke sessions or in one of the ship’s lounges.
Sound familiar? It probably will do if you have traveled with Princess before although it used to be called ‘Princess’ Got Talent’ I should know, I got to the final myself back in 2013.
The first rounds will be decided by guests and then the selected contestants will move on to the next stage
of the competition where they will meet the judges. Exactly as before ! The judges will be made up of the ship’s high end staff including the Captain! The judges will choose their teams and then coach them. The winner will be picked by the audience and awarded a trophy. That’s the same as before too. So all that is different is the name.
That said, I am actually a fan of this idea, it is a bit of fun and its interesting to see how many people actually want to take this up and be part of the contest and it certainly will surprise a few people as to how many talented people there are out there. Princess cruises have said that they feel the contest will be a huge hit with the Princess guests.
The competition will be available on the Regal Princess in October, and will follow to the Royal Princess and Caribbean Princess in November. By May 2016 another 8 ships will hold the contest.
Will you be entering or is this your idea of cruise entertainment hell?
