Royal Caribbean International has announced that guests on Quantum of the Seas will enjoy Mamma Mia!
Holidaymakers aboard Royal Caribbean International cruises will soon be able to enjoy one of the biggest musicals of all time.
Mamma Mia! - the smash hit based on the songs of Swedish pop sensation ABBA - will feature on Quantum of the Seas when she sails from the New York area in November 2014.
More than 54 million people around the world have fallen in love with the characters, the story and the songs that make the musical the ultimate feel-good show.
Royal Caribbean International is the first cruise line to feature fully licensed, Tony Award-winning Broadway productions.
Since introducing Hairspray on Oasis of the Seas in 2009, the company has continued to wow customers with a host of big names in the world of entertainment.
"The debut of Mamma Mia! onboard Quantum of the Seas continues to raise the bar of what we offer our guests onboard our latest groundbreaking ship," said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, Executive Vice President of Operations.
"Our Tony award-winning musical productions have been incredibly well-received by guests, and we are proud to expand our Broadway at sea offerings with our fourth licensed main-stage production - more than any other cruise line."
Mamma Mia! tells the story of a daughter's quest to discover the identity of her father on the eve of her wedding.
Set on a Greek Island paradise, the funny tale brings three men from her mother's past back to the island they last visited 20 years ago.
Songs including some of ABBA's greatest hits - 'Dancing Queen', 'The Winner Takes It All', 'Money, Money, Money' and 'Take a Chance on Me' - propel this enchanting tale of love, laughter and friendship.
The new Quantum-class from Royal Caribbean International will debut in November 2014 with Quantum of the Seas, followed by her sister-ship Anthem of the Seas in April 2015.
Each ship spans 16 decks, encompasses 167,800 gross registered tons, carries 4,180 guests at double occupancy and features 2,090 staterooms.
As with any cruise, holidaymakers booking trips on these new vessels should make sure they are covered by adequate
cruise travel insurance.
