If you’ve been following my blog you know that I went on the Baltic Sea Cruise in large part to see my niece and her boyfriend perform on the ship. The ports were secondary in my trip planning. Honestly, it was one of the best vacations I’ve ever taken. Such an ambitious itinerary and a gorgeous ship. I quickly adapted to someone else doing all the cooking and cleaning for 11 days
We finished our second day in St Petersburgh with a Princess Production Show named Fiera! This show was developed in-house with input from seasoned professionals including American Idol Director and Choreographer, Danny Teeson. It was a musical with a carnival atmosphere. The plot was simple, a father, the Ring Master, struggled with letting his daughter go. The daughter fell in love and the cast of characters danced and sang their way through the process.
The songs were familiar – “Born This Way”, “Man in the Mirror”, “Sweet Child of Mine”, each sequenced to help the story unfold. The dancing was phenomenal with colorful costumes and vibrant sets. It was quite the spectacle, much more technical than I would have envisioned for a cruise ship. In fact all of the production shows blew me away.
