Recommended Posts

MIAMI (August 25, 2006) – “Fiesta Latina” and “Far From Over:

the 80s” – two lavish revues featuring fast-paced musical numbers and

elaborate costumes and sets – will be featured on Carnival Cruise

Lines’ “Fun Ship” Fascination following a scheduled dry dock in



The new shows will be among the varied entertainment options

available on the 2,052-passenger SuperLiner, which operates year-round

three- and four-day cruises from Miami.


“The Fascination is one of the cruise industry’s most popular

short cruise options and these new shows, along with the many

facilities and features incorporated during its upcoming dry dock,

will make a terrific ‘Fun Ship’ even better,” said Bob Dickinson,

Carnival president and CEO.


Making its Carnival debut is “Fiesta Latina,” which like the

name implies, pays homage to the pulsating Latin and Caribbean rhythms

of these two musical genres. The show takes viewers on a journey

through various musical hotspots, opening with a visit to a sultry

Havana nightclub with an elaborate number featuring varied versions of

the mambo.


Next, it’s on to Jamaica where colorfully clad singers and

dancers perform a host of Latin and reggae numbers. The last stop is

Brazil featuring a dramatic backdrop resembling the Amazonian jungle,

followed by a show-stopping finale.


The second show, “Far From Over: the 80s” celebrates the era of “big

hair,” leg warmers and, of course, unforgettable music. Featuring a

set of oversized icons of the decade, the show kicks off with a

captivating laser display, and includes tributes to the music of the



To accommodate the extensive technical capabilities of these two new

shows, the Fascination’s 1,300-seat Palace Lounge will be completely

overhauled and feature a new revolving turntable, orchestra pit and a

recessed speaker system enhancing the room’s already impressive sound

quality and overall visibility. New stage lighting and a computerized

audio/visual communications network will be added, as well.


The 70,000-ton Fascination sails year-round from Miami on three- and

four-day cruises. On this route, three-day cruises depart Fridays and

overnight in Nassau while four-day voyages depart Mondays and stop at

Key West and Cozumel.
