Norwegian Cruise Line this week announced it was launching an online docuseries about its return to sailing, which right now is scheduled for early next year.
The series, titled “Embark - The Series” will stream on NCL’s website starting on Thursday, Nov. 19 at 9 p.m., before being made available on-demand. The first episodes, 40 minutes long each, will spotlight the line’s entertainment options, with the first episode taking viewers into London’s West End Garrick Theatre to take a look at how the cast of “The Choir of Man” reunited after months apart.
““The Choir of Man’ family and I were absolutely thrilled when NCL asked us to come together to create an exclusive performance of the show that guests could enjoy from home, until they have the chance to cruise again,” said Nic Doodson, one of the creators behind “The Choir of Man” and the producer of the first series of Embark.
The play, which is featured on both Encore and Escape, includes performances of songs like “Save Tonight,” “Escape (The Piña Colada Song),” “Hello” and “Some Nights.” All of those will be featured on this week’s episode.
“The world of theater has had a particularly hard year, so this opportunity to sing, dance and perform together again was an incredible feeling, not only for the guys, but for everyone involved. I hope that the positive and uplifting energy comes across in this episode and inspires those tuning in to continue to look ahead to brighter days.
"The cast appreciated this opportunity to reconnect on and off stage, and now more than ever are looking forward to entertaining guests again soon in our pub on land, at sea or wherever people enjoy gathering with those closest to them,” Doodson added.
