Headline Act Cruise Ship Contracts $1500 - $2500+ (£1000 - £2000+) Per Week
Contract pay is generally between $1500 - $2500+ (£1000 - £2000+) Per Week, for you to perform 1-2 shows total over the week in the theatre.
As your status on board is 'guest' status (you are called a 'Guest / Entertainer'), the 5/6 days on the cruise where you are not performing are literally your own to enjoy the local areas around the ports where the ship has docked, or to enjoy the cruise ships activities & shows when 'at sea'.
Cruise lines that you would be performing on include:
Carnival Cruise Lines
Disney Cruise Line
Holland America Line
Norwegian Cruise Line
Royal Caribbean International
Azamara Club Cruises
Paul Gauguin Cruises
Regent Seven Seas Cruises
Seabourn Cruise Line
Contracts vary from requiring you to have 1 x 45 minute show to perform in the theatre / cabaret lounge + a completely different 20 minute show (usually to perform alongside another act as a split show or as part of a 'variety show').
Other contracts require you to have 2 x different 45 minute shows, however if you only currently have enough material for a 1 x 45 + 20 minute show, most agents are happy to offer you suitable contracts.
Note: If you are a Singer / Musical act you will be expected to provide each member of the on-board band your own sheet music (dots) to play your performances.
Contract lengths differ from 1-2 week contracts on-board to 'back-to-back contracts. For 1-2 week contracts, you will fly to the nearest airport that the ship is due to dock, board the ship, perform 1-2 shows each week in the main theatre and then fly home at the end of the 1 / 2 weeks (all flights are paid for by the cruise line). If you would like to perform 'back-to-back' contracts, your agent can try and fix this up for you so that after one contract is finished, instead of flying you home they will fly you to location where the next contract is about to start and put you up in accommodation for a night or two if necessary before the ship docks for you to join.
