Oceania Cruises’ New ‘Riviera’ to Feature Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber

MIAMI, January 30, 2012 — Oceania Cruises has teamed with Royal Theatrical Productions to feature “Now and Forever — The Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber” on board its new 1,250-guest Riviera, which debuts in May 2012.

A 10-member cast of singers and dancers will perform music from many of Webber’s best-known shows, including CATS, The Phantom of the Opera and its sequel Love Never Dies, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, and Jesus Christ Superstar.

Riviera will feature three additional production shows: “Up in Flames,” showcasing the music of Elton John and Billy Joel; “The Dawning of Aquarius,” a 60s review; and “Rock On,” a love story with a rock-and-roll vibe. Royal Theater Productions, founded by Jean Ann Ryan, is an award-winning entertainment group that has produced high-quality musical revues for many of the world’s finest cruise ships and resorts.

“We are thrilled that Riviera guests will enjoy the songbook of Andrew Lloyd Webber,” said Michael Day, Oceania Cruises’ vice president of entertainment. “Working with Jean Ann Ryan and her team we are assured of the most talented performers and highest quality choreography, sound and lighting.”

Oceania Cruises’ new Riviera will feature suites over 2,000+ square feet and the largest veranda staterooms at sea. Top suites exude a residential esthetic with furnishings from Ralph Lauren Home and designs by Dakota Jackson of New York and S.B. Long Interiors of Greenwich, CT. The ship will also feature a Lalique-designed grand lobby, 10 dining venues and numerous bars and lounges. Facilities will include a full-service Canyon Ranch SpaClub and innovative Bon Appétit Culinary Center.

Following her May 16 maiden voyage, Riviera will spend the summer and fall cruising the Mediterranean and then cross the Atlantic to operate a series of winter Panama Canal and Caribbean cruises.
