Star Cruises Brings NANTA Out To Sea

Asian cruise operator Star Cruises has announced it is bringing the globally-acclaimed Korean comedy NANTA (Cookin’) out to sea, with the stage show performed added to the entertainment line-up onboard the SuperStar Gemini.


In conjunction with the year-end holiday season from 14 November 2014 to 2 January 2015, passengers on the ship’s roundtrip itineraries to Kuala Lumpur, Langkawi, Malacca, Penang and Phuket from Singapore can enjoy South Korea’s finest & longest running show, a unique fusion of culinary and percussion skills. The energetic and highly-engaging show debuted in 1997 and tells of 3 chefs attempting to prepare a banquet feast within a strict time limit while their manager installs his incompetent nephew among the kitchen staff, who then beat, tap and drum their way while chopping furiously and sending food flying.


Samulnori (traditional Korean music) is incorporated in the largely non-verbal performance, creatively innovated from improvised instruments of traditional Korean water drums, to cooking utensils like pots, whisks and even carving knives. Audiences will also have the opportunity to join the cast on stage in interactive segments, while special meet-and-greet sessions outside performance times ensure an up close and personal experience.


SuperStar Gemini’s staging of NANTA marks the first time that Star Cruises is showcasing branded stage entertainment onboard its ships in Asia, a trend its sister line Norwegian Cruise Line (with Blue Man Group onboard Norwegian Epic) and rivals Royal Caribbean International (with Chicago, Hairspray and Saturday Night Fever onboard Allure of the Seas, Oasis of the Seas and Liberty of the Seas) have adopted in Europe and the Americas.
