Frequently Asked Questions for the “Celtic Thunder” Cruise:
Am I guaranteed access to all shows on board?
Each and every night of the cruise features a major nightly show for each of our dining groups. Starting around 6 pm every night, those who are in 1st Seating Dining will dine and then will see their major nightly show around 8:30 pm or so. Those in Main Seating Dining will go to their major nightly show which will start around 6 pm as well. The exact show times and dining schedules have not been confirmed, but these times are reasonable approximations at this time. The nightly shows may be the same show twice or different shows. In either event, each show is performed once for 1st Seating Diners and once for Main Seating Diners, so you will see every show sometime during the cruise. The major nightly shows of the Celtic Thunder Cruise will be held in the Main Lounge. There is ample good seating for every guest. The rest of the cruise is set up as in a festival style, with numerous shows and activities going on at the same time, where you are welcome to come and go as you wish.
