Default I thought Drew Thomas - magician on FOS was great

Do CD's count, because I thought Graham Seymour was a great entertainer.

I also saw Earl Thomas. Thought he was terrific.

I almost forgot: the reggae band on the FOS last October (don't know their name), absolutely incredible. In my opinion, they really made the pool time on the ship with my family very memorable. They just seemed to set the tone for me.

Both me (32) and my Mom (64) enjoyed VERY much the Zoots 60's music show and the Physical Comedy of Michael M.

Brilliant on the Navigator last month.

As some of the original respondents already said:
Best stage show: Dominick Allen (from Foreigner)
Best bar performer: Derek Lewis (Adult kamakaze karaoke)

Oddly enough, I saw them both on the same cruise.

Hope he will be back on the Monarch this fall.

On our first RCI cruise Jerry Lewis was filming for the MDA telethon. He was very good and very funny around the ship when people would recognized him. Also performing on that cruise were the Platters and George Carlin.
We were spoiled after that.

I would love to see the Nelson brothers. I wonder if they are still performing on the ships?

They were featured entertainers on our 2012 New Year's Eve cruise on Navigator of the Seas. I imagine if you google them you will be able to see where and when they are performing. You could also ask Merion Mom since they seem to perform on many of the cruises she books. LOL

I will add a few "headliners" from our 20 year RCI history:

Comedian Norm Crosby (played blackjack with him and have a picture taken by his limo with him as he was leaving the ship in Puerto Rico mid-cruise)
The 5th Dimension
Bobby Rydell
Merrill Osmond (OK - not Donny or Marie but and Osmond nonetheless - have a picture with him and his wife)
Rain (Beatles cover band)

They ABSOLUTELY follow me around.

I have PROOF POSITIVE.

My son got married 10 days ago in Washington, D.C.

Guess who was there in our hotel?

You guessed it - I ran into Gunnar and Matthew out front waiting for the parking valet to bring their car out.

They maybe the founder member of the Shane Tapper fan club!! I for one won't be joining - just didn't like the guy, thought he had the personality of a bar stool - and I don't think the bar staff liked him as he emptied out the bar on the Indy and cost them tips!!

We were on the Splendour last month and the guy in the Schooner bar - Anselmo Boles - now that guy had personality and boy, could he sing!! If only he didn't finish at 12.30 every night

Default Shane Tapper - The Best

Well I can tell you the last two times we caught Shane Tapper - the Bar staff loved him - packed venues and lots of good times. Surely if you don't like someones performance you just say so and leave. With your scathing and personal attack on Shane ... it is obvious there is something else at play here. With 99 extremely positive comments read ... and then yours ... I'll believe what I experienced first hand. and what the 99% of other members say and leave it at that - Rock on Shane !!

Thumbs up Rick Novell

We recently saw Rick Novell on the Enchantment. He was awesome. In the past, I've seen many great acts, such as...

The Platters
Marc Angelo
The Ice Show cast on the Mariner
