THE TRIBUTE CRUISE
Our Tribute Cruise feature shows by some of the world’s best Elvis Tribute Artists. Because of our great relationship with Royal Caribbean we have been granted excellent show times.
Please note that due to ship operations and changes, show times are also subject to change and we appreciate your understanding. You will receive a final schedule of all events and concerts when you arrive on board.
2024 Show Schedule (shows will be posted as they are confirmed)
Doors for all shows open one half-hour before showtime. The VIP pass holders and priority seating groups for each show (if any) will be seated first. Other guests will be let in following the priority group (see details below). Those who purchased VIP seating will have reserved seats unless otherwise noted below.

A NOTE FOR GUESTS ON SHOW TIMES, PERFORMANCE VENUES AND PUBLIC SHOWS
We are posting this as a way of addressing some of the comments on the surveys over the past several years. We would love to pick the exact time and location of each of our shows for the entire week, assuring you the best shows possible. But unlike at most of our festivals, on the cruise the cruise company gives us the times and locations they have available. Generally, our only choice is to say yes or no. Luckily, or relationship with RC has given us a lot of leeway. We have contacted other cruise lines, and not been offered anything as generous.
Most of our shows are held in Studio-B because its one of only two rooms that can accommodate our group on the ship. We would LOVE to use the theater more, but unfortunately it’s occupied every evening.
We always try to provide the best and we hope that those of you who have attended multiple cruises see it getting better every year!
