Yes. All of our artists will be joining you for the full cruise, and performing onboard the ship. However, there may be some cases where an artist needs to join us during the cruise or depart early due to a scheduling conflict or other family commitment.
Some artists will be doing a few formal photo sessions, which will be announced, in more detail, as we get closer to sailing. Any additional autographs, photos or other interactions will be at each band/artist’s discretion.
Def Leppard will be performing a main Theater Performance for each guest (in 2 separate showings), a “Storytellers” Performance as well as a Def Leppard Q&A. Other artists will be playing at least once, with some performing multiple times.

We will release the schedule of concerts and events about one week before the sailing. Please know that this is not something we do to torture you…but the schedule is a delicate balancing act and we want to be sure we have made every necessary change before we release it to you. We don’t want you to miss anything due to having an incomplete or altered schedule!
