Cruise Ship "Guest Entertainer" Headlining Act Contracts

If you're looking to perform your act in the cruise ship's main theatre, the contracts you want to look out for are 'Guest Entertainer' or 'Cruise Ship Fly-Back / Fly-on' contracts. As a Guest Entertainer, pay is generally between $1500 - $2500+ (£1000 - £2000+) per week, for you to perform 1-2 shows in the cruise ship's main theatre.

Cruise Ship Lounge Performer Contracts

If you're a Singer, Musician, Duo, DJ or other artist and have your own 'sets' but generally perform as background music in e.g. a lounge setting rather than as a 'Show' in the main theatre, you will generally be on-board for 4-9 months depending on the contract.

There are contracts you can apply for right now throughout our entertainment jobs, gigs & auditions pages or by clicking any of the porthole images links on this page.

Cruise Ship Show Team, Party Bands and Band Member Contracts

All cruise ships have an on-board band and an on-board 'Show Team' (also called the 'Production Team').
The on-board band plays live to all of the Show Team's production shows and also provides the music for the musical 'Guest Entertainer' acts that come onboard and perform their shows 1-2 times per week in the theatre.

Cruise Liners also offer contracts for Party Bands...

Party Bands, Band members and Show Team Singers and Dancers are generally onboard for anything from 4-9 month contracts. Simply click on any of the porthole images for your act type on this page.
