What's on Stage had this to say about this new venture and, with more performers added in the months since the initial announcement, the latest line-up is as shown in the pic above/right.
The festival at sea concept is not a new one - P&O have been offering classical and opera themed festivals for a number of years - but this venture into the musical theatre genre is breaking new ground... er, waves! The festival follows the familiar format of its land-based cousins with multiple 'stages' and Lee will be on board throughout, with his own headline show during the voyage as well as being involved in other events. There will be a full programme of musical theatre activities to enjoy on board, including workshops, Q&As and a Masquerade Ball theme night.
You can find full information on all the booking options available for the cruise on the Floating Festivals website.
