If you’re missing the magic of cruising, you won’t want to miss Norwegian Cruise Line’s new docuseries, “EMBARK – The Series,” inviting you to experience the Brand and enjoy a front-row seat to its highly-anticipated comeback.

The docuseries kicks off with an “EMBARK NCL Spotlight Series,” two episodes showcasing the iconic Broadway and West End calibre entertainment found across the Norwegian fleet.

“Now more than ever, we are longing for connection,” said Richard Ambrose, senior vice president of entertainment and cruise programming at Norwegian Cruise Line.

“Entertainment unites us, allowing us to forget our worries, even if just for a short while. We have long been advocates for the entertainment community and are committed to providing high-caliber performances for our guests.”

To the West End

The first episode invites viewers into London’s historic West End Garrick Theatre for a special reunion that brings “The Choir of Man” cast together for the first time in many months.

The episode will include performances of guest favourites including “Save Tonight,” “Escape (The Piña Colada Song),” “Hello” and “Some Nights” as well as an inside look at how the cast is managing through this historic time and how the talented performers are remaining optimistic about the future.

Highly praised for its high energy, live music and foot-stomping choreography, “The Choir of Man” is an immersive pub experience featuring ordinary guys who perform everything from sing-along classics to classic rock.

Traditionally set in a neighbourhood pub, the show highlights the importance of community and human connection through a series of songs, poetry, and intimate conversations. 

In addition to its residency on Norwegian Escape and Norwegian Encore, “The Choir of Man” has performed across the globe in iconic venues including Chicago’s Broadway Playhouse at Water Tower Place and Washington D.C.’s John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, and just announced that it will return to the Sydney Opera House for the third time beginning February 2021.
