The close-up show is at my suggestion to the cruise director as it gives me another chance to push my DVDs plus I thoroughly enjoy close-up magic. How many shows you are required to perform depends entirely on the length of cruise. If you are doing the short seven day cruises then more often that not you will only be required to do one full show perhaps maybe another show sharing the bill with another act. On the longer cruises of say twenty four days you can be assured you will need to do two different full shows. This requires a lot of work and it is important that your second show is as strong as the first. Speaking from experience I prefer just to do my one main show as it contains all my number one material rather than try and split it up between two shows. After experimenting with my act I realized how important it is to make sure your first show is very strong that way people will talk about you get to know you and come back for the second. You will hear other entertainers say they have an A and a B show in my opinion if you want a long career in Cruising make sure both your shows are A material. If you can do a close-up show then by all means mention it to the cruise director as it all helps in the long run keeping your name in front of the passengers when they fill in the comment cards. The general rule of thumb is that you will do your main show twice in one night.
Cruises ships are often viewed as large oversized vessels. However the size of the cruise ship you are interested in vacationing on is also likely to determine the level of intimacy on board. A smaller cruise line may be your best bet if it is intimacy that you want. More passengers often make it difficult to have on board private moments and larger cruise ships have more passengers. A number of romantic cruise lines target their smaller cruise ships to couples looking to vacation alone. In addition to the size of the ship the style and décor of the ship may determine whether or not you can experience romance on board. As previously mentioned there are a number of cruise lines that target couples looking to vacation alone. Part of that targeting may include creating a romantic environment. You may find romantic cabins room service and other similar services on romance-themed cruise ships.
Another featured act on NCLs cruise ships is the Second City Comedy Troupe. Although I did not see their show on the Epic (... there just wasnt enough time to do everything... ) my wife and I have seen them on several other NCL cruise ships. In general we found their \"rehearsed\" skits to be very funny and their \"ad-libbed\" routines very \"un-funny\" (but then again I never really enjoyed watching Jonathan Winters who was regarded by many people as an \"ad-lib\" comedic genius). Activities on the ship were plentiful. Unique to the Epic were the \"Epic Plunge\" (a massive 7-deck water slide) 6 bowling alleys and the SVEDKA Ice Bar (which NCL touts as the first ice bar at sea) in which the entire contents (including the bar) are made of ice and the venue is maintained at a \"toasty\" 17-degree temperature to keep it from melting. Now thats \"really cool\"! Patrons are provided with heavy jackets before entering and vodka is clearly the beverage of choice.
If personalized service and having someone at your beck and call is important to you opt for a luxury cruise ship. Cruise ships also come in a wide range of sizes although size may not be the primary concern. Cruise West and SeaDream Yachts offer some of the smallest ships under 200 passengers. Small ships will offer a more personalized experience and their size allows them to visit smaller and less-traveled ports. As a down side smaller ships arent able to offer the extravagant entertainment of larger ships. If youre prone to sea-sickness a larger ship is definitely the better option. The larger the ship the less noticeable the rolling motion of travel at sea. One last consideration that may not come immediately to mind - is this a maiden voyage or will you be traveling on an established ship? While the first thought may be \"the newer the better\" there are disadvantages to being on the first trip of a new cruise ship.
