By Sherri EisenbergGone are the days when stage shows on cruise ships were
warmed-over medleys of show tunes sung by performers in high school
musical-style costumes.
Today, many cruise lines have raised the bar on everything from the quality
of the entertainers to the sets and costumes, as well as the nature of the
shows themselves.
Many shows are shortened versions of West End or Broadway musicals, and still
others are original musicals created for the lines themselves.
 Here are five new ones that have recently launched or are coming later
this year:We Will Rock You Courtesy: Royal Caribbean In April, Royal
Caribbean took the opportunity to debut its new "We Will Rock You" show when
it launched its newest ship, Anthem of the Seas, in the U.
K.
 The new West End-style musical uses the music of the band Queen to tell
a futuristic tale about a time when rock music was no longer allowed, and the
hero—Galileo—who fights against the tyranny.

"La Peregrina" is an original musical
created exclusively for Viking that "blends the intrigue of James Bond with
the humor of Get Smart," according to the cruise line.
It premiered in May when Viking Star, the ship that launched the new Viking
Ocean line, was christened in Bergen, Norway.

Princess Cruises has partnered with Stephen
Schwartz, the Oscar-winning composer of Pippin, Wicked, and Godspell, to
create four original Broadway-style musicals for the line, which will debut
over the next few years.
The first, "Magic to Do," will debut on the Crown Princess in October, the
Ruby Princess in November, and the Emerald Princess in December.
The play will be created in partnership with illusionist Jim Steinmeyer, who
has worked with some of the world’s most famous magicians, including
David Copperfield and Siegfried & Roy.
