Default Favorite entertainer on Princess?

Several years ago I enjoyed the talents of Kemble, a Liberace-inspired pianist/singer, who entertained large groups in the Sun atrium. I was wondering if other cruisers remember any entertainers that made your vacation special.

We sailed the Caribbean Princess Sept 2, 07 and the best for us was Phoenix Rising every night in the Wheelhouse Bar. Great entertainment Joey and his guys Jim and Randy made our cruise one of the best we have had. Sorry to say this week is his last on the CB. Not sure where he will be next but if you get the chance to hear them go and spend you cruise time with them and tell them Boot Lady say HI.

Another vote for Elua. They performed in the Wheelhouse Bar on the CB in '05. They played a special song for DH and I on our anniversary and it was very romantic. We bought their CD and it brings back nice memories.

I agree with Pheonix Rising They were on the Grand, our first cruise and we closed the Wheelhouse just about every night. They were so much fun and would sit with us and others during the breaks.
Maybe, with any luck they will be on the Crown in early April.

I wish there was a way to tell Princess to move them to the Crown
If we are lucky enough to have them will say HI from Boot Lady

Directly from Bert ... His winter schedule is Caribbean Princess from Jan. 20th to April 27th. I hope this fits in with your cruise dates.
Happy Sailing All! Deb.

Thumbs up Hands down...the hypnotist !!

I cannot remember his name, but he was the hypnotist. Without a doubt, the best entertainment I've ever seen while on a cruise. I saw him aboard the Golden and Sun Princess (I think). On the Golden Princess, my 20 year old nephew volunteered to be hypnotized, and here is my tough, macho nephew, prancing around the stage like a ballerina and putting his size 13 shoe to his ear, thinking its a telephone. We laughed so hard, we pee'd our pants !!! There were about 15 passengers on stage with my nephew, and they were all hypnotized!

I would really love to see him again. Does anyone know if he is still on Princess' ships?
