Hi all who are sailing and not-sailing with us.

I got an answer to my Email from RCI today with our guest entertainer list for AOS.

THE PLATTERS!!!!! whoeeee, they're great!

Chris Bliss - comic
Martin Dube - Impressionist
Dolores Park - Singer
El Gaucho - Oscar Silvera - El Gaucho act.
Alonzo Bodden - Comic
TJ McCormack - Comic
Duo Donnert - Balancing
Alexie & Olga - Featured Ice Act

But....THE PLATTERS. ... Couldn't have been better if I chose it myself!! We saw them in 2001 on Explorer and it was a standing room only crowd and no one sat down for 1 1/2 hrs and the concert was that long!!

NOW, Everyone will want to sail with us!!!

Sorry - I just re-read your post and realized you e-mailed RCCL. I'll try the same thing for my cruise.
Thanks anyway and have a great time.

Saw Chris Bliss a few years back at a local comedy club - I remember his name and that he was funny; we enjoyed him. It seems maybe he did something with ping pong balls back then. . . anyway, love the Platters, too. Enjoy!

Bowser from Sha Na Na was on our last cruise, that was fun. We have seen "El Rauncho" (El Gaucho) 2 times, once he was OK the other time he was a pig and the show was not fun.

The Platters!! Ohhh! I'm jealous! I emailed RCCI about a month ago to find out who the headliners will be on my cruise. I got an answer the very same day saying my cruise was too far away to tell us yet. (12-5-04-Rhapsody) The email said to try again closer to the cruise date. Hope we get someone great, too!! Happy cruising!

We had the Platters on our 2/27 Brilliance Cruise. One of the original Platters is with the group, although he does little than provide some bass harmony and introduce the songs. But, the current group is great and they have a terrific lead singer (can't remember his name). The Platter's music is as good today as it was in the 50s and early 60s. You will love the show!

We had El Gaucho on Serenade in Feb... When I saw it in the Compass I was tempted not to go as he was advertised as "An Argentinan Cowboy" or something like that. Anyway, he was the best entertainment of the week. Hilarious!

We didn't have anyone famous on our AOS cruise!

We had John Davidson on a Vision cruise.

What is that address so that I can find out about this summer's cruise on the Mariner?

On Voyager's 3/28 sailing, we had the Drifters on board Friday night. They put on an awesome, unforgettable show. The entire showroom was standing on their feet, clapping & dancing. The Platters will be great too!

All you have to do is email RCI, and believe me it sometimes takes a while for an answer. I emailed them about 5 weeks ago and just got it yesterday!
But, I went on the RCi site where it says "contact us" and just emailed them our sail date, reservation number.
We saw the Platters in 2001 on Explorer and it was just awesome, and we couldn't be more pleased with it. The Diamonds (another 50-60's group) was on Radiance in Nove, 2003, but they were all new people who had, I guess, "purchased" the name and revived the group. They were good, but when you can see one of the original singers...well.
Thanks everyone for the info and hope to see some of you on board with us.

We are sailing on 5/30 also and my husband and I are children of the 50s and 60s, so this is great news. I am so looking forward to another cruise. We have been planning a family cruise for our 40th Wedding Anniversary for well over a year now. Yes, the three oldest Osmand Brothers are still performinng. We saw them in Branson, MO last fall and they were awesome.

Hi CruisesAreBest,
We're a group of 7 adults, from 45-56 yrs old. Maybe we can talk more and meet up on board. Have you signed up for the Meet & Mingle onboard yet? We get free food/drinks at a party just for us.
Our email is [email protected] if you'd care to email us.

Talk with you soon.
