Princess Cruises’ “Fantastic Journey” Production Show Honored with Prestigious Thea Award for Outstanding Achievement
SANTA CLARITA, Calif. (November 14, 2018) – Princess Cruises guests boast rave reviews for the high-tech, mesmerizing theatrical show “Fantastic Journey,” with its elaborate costumes and state-of-the-art multimedia technology. Now, the Themed Entertainment Association (TEA) is honoring “Fantastic Journey” with its Thea Award of Outstanding Achievement, as recently announced at the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions Expo in Orlando.

The Thea Awards were created by the Themed Entertainment Association (TEA) to help realize a key mission of the association: bringing recognition to achievement, talent and personal excellence within the themed entertainment industry. TEA's Thea Awards Nominating Committee recommends the slate of awards recipients each year after an extensive selection and evaluation process. The TEA International Board of Directors gives final approval to the slate of recipients. The Thea Awards Committee is a themed entertainment industry "who's who" of professionals who have distinguished themselves and been celebrated for leadership, creativity and innovation.

The long-standing collaboration between Princess Cruises’ Creative Director Kerry Lovegrove and “American Idol’s” Danny Teeson was critical to the incredible success of “Fantastic Journey”. With high-tech, lavish musical numbers, Teeson and Lovegrove created a stunning visual show produced exclusively for the launch of Majestic Princess and now also performed aboard Caribbean Princess. Featuring an all-star cast, the show combines the music of today’s superstars with spectcaular special effects, high-flying aerialists, and the first use of drones in a show at sea. A “Fantastic Journey” trailer is can be viewed here:

“‘Fantastic Journey’ propels guests into a contemporary and immersive experience unlike anything done before at sea that is now enjoyed by our guests cruising to destinations all over the world,” said Denise Saviss, Princess Cruises vice president of entertainment experience. “We’re honored our creativity and commitment to deliver an entertainment experience completely different and memorable is being recognized by the notable Themed Entertainment Association with this award.”

“Fantastic Journey” premiered in Shanghai in spring of 2017 onboard Majestic Princess, which immediately caught the attention of the entire cruise industry given both the scale and technical complexity of this custom-designed show. The show features a tremendous cast of talented singers and dancers, supported by production stage staff. Show highlights include various layers of LED and projection mapped elements, along with LED programmable costumes, epic audio design, beautiful lighting and projection mapped imagery which interacted with the performers.

The TEA Thea Awards Committee wrote, “‘Fantastic Journey’ sets a new standard in cruise ship entertainment by the creation of an epic concert of exceptional proportions and production values aboard the Majestic Princess. It reflects Princess Cruises’ in-depth understanding of their market’s tastes, style, and preferences, combined with a high sensitivity to the need for best-in-class leisure experiences.”

“Fantastic Journey” will be recognized at a black-tie gala TEA event at Disneyland in Anaheim, Calif., with more than 1,000 guests from around the world to honor the best projects and attractions each year on April 13, 2019.
