The on-board Headliners theatre company was amazing! We saw every show that they did (5 in total) – and for them to put on such varied performances to such a high level was amazing. A new show was also launched whilst we were on board, which featured Avatar and more modern classics. It was brilliant!- VickiLovescruises
