New year, fantastic new entertainment


Join us in welcoming some exciting new stars on board to entertain you in 2017…

Scottish singer-songwriter Jai McDowall and ventriloquist Gareth Oliver

Scottish singer-songwriter Jai McDowall and ventriloquist Gareth Oliver both starred on ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent

We pride ourselves on putting on some amazing shows to keep you entertained on holiday. Whatever your musical taste, you’ll find something to keep you happy in our theatres – from classical and jazz to cabaret and tribute acts, we’ve got it covered. 


This year, we’re delighted to welcome three graduates from ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent to the fold.


Jai McDowall

Scottish singer-songwriter Jai McDowall took first prize in the talent contest in 2011, winning over Simon Cowell & co with his infectious blend of classical-meets-pop-meets-rock opera (the boy’s versatile!). He’ll be appearing live on board Britannia in February 2017 on a 14-night Caribbean cruise.


Gareth Oliver

Jai will be joined on board by Gareth Oliver, who in 2009 was the first ventriloquist to reach the live semi-finals of the show. Gareth’s professional career began in 1999 when, at the age of 18, he won a talent competition held on ITV’s This Morning. Over the years he has toured his act both at home and abroad, supporting well-known performers such as Brian Conley and Frank Skinner. In 2011 he teamed up with his partner Alice, a female ventriloquist, becoming the only double ventriloquist act in the world.

Jack Pack

Jack Pack reached the finals in 2014

Jack Pack

Four-man vocal group Jack Pack reached the finals of Britain’s Got Talent in 2014. Since then they’ve continued to seduce the crowds on TV, radio, in Hyde Park and at major corporate events. The classy Hollywood-style swingers join Britannia at the end of February 2017 on a 14-night cruise of the Caribbean, followed by another Caribbean cruise in March. They give classics such as ‘That’s Life’, ‘My Way’ and ‘Feeling Good’ their unique British spin, with wonderfully tight harmonies delivered with an irresistible swagger.
