The Limelight Club on board P&O Cruises’ Britannia

P&O Cruises has revealed the latest celebrity names to headline Britannia‘s popular entertainment and dinner venue, Limelight Club.

They include actress Anne Reid MBE and British soul singer Jahméne Douglas, plus there is a new production called Judy & Liza celebrating the life of the two legendary songstresses. This is brought to life by Emma Dears and Lucy Williamson, both of whom have spent many years in London’s West End. Two-time Drama Desk Award-nominated actress, singer and impressionist Christina Bianco, who has become a YouTube sensation with her diva impression videos, is set to perform on Britannia’s 14-night Caribbean cruise round trip from St Lucia departing 18 November.

English pop singer, songwriter and occasional actor Chesney Hawkes will also perform on three Britannia cruises. He is best known for his 1991 single, The One and Only, which topped the UK singles chart and reached the top10 in the United States. Chesney has also made more than 1,200 headline appearances in the UK as well as throughout Europe with TV and radio work.

Brian McFadden and Keith Duffy – a part of the multi-platinum, record breaking bands, Westlife and Boyzone, respectively – have joined forces to create Boyzlife. This exciting new show on Britannia’s 14-night Spain, France & Italy cruise will be packed full of untold stories, further Westlife and Boyzone hits not yet performed by Brian and Keith together, as well as many favourites from the previous tour.

Claire Sweeney, who has starred in many major shows over the years including Chicago, Guys and Dolls (opposite Patrick Swayze), Educating Rita, Legally Blonde, Fosse, Tell Me On A Sunday and Hairspray, will also perform on five Britannia cruises. Claire also worked as the forces sweetheart, entertaining British troops abroad. She was the first entertainer into Afghanistan and Oman and was delighted to perform at A Party To Remember live on BBC TV to celebrate VE day. A highlight of her career was to sing at the festival of commemoration from Horse Guards Parade to celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the end of World War II, in the presence of HM The Queen.

Britannia’s Limelight Club is a combined entertainment and dinner venue in the great tradition of a supper club. As guests enjoy a  three-course meal – featuring contemporary European dishes such as native sea bass fillet on Devonshire crab salad; rump of spring lamb with cannelloni bean and black garlic puree; and monkfish and bacon scampi with parmesan potato beignets – they will be treated to a variety of entertainment and guest performers. Once the entertainment finishes, the venue turns into a late-night club and dance venue.
