September 21, 2007 – Fort Lauderdale, FL – Regent Seven Seas Cruises (RSSC), voted the world’s #1 large-ship operator by readers of CondÃƒÂ© Nast Traveler, will treat fans of the intimate nightclub entertainment known as cabaret to a journey to remember! RSSC’s all-suite, all-balcony Seven Seas Voyager will host the fourth edition of the Mabel Mercer Foundation (MMF)’s annual “Cabaret Convention at Sea 2008”. The event will be featured aboard Seven Seas Voyager 14-night transatlantic journey from Fort Lauderdale to Spain, departing April 30, 2008.
The “Cabaret Convention at Sea” will feature a cast of talented and distinguished Broadway cabaret stars, including Marilyn Maye, Billy Stritch, K T Sullivan, Steve Ross and James Followell, who will entertain guests with shows throughout the voyage. Guests will have the opportunity to interact with the stars at special, “members-only” events. The Cabaret Convention at Sea will be hosted by Arie Boris, Editor of CruiseGourmet.com magazine.
The event is a tribute to Mabel Mercer (Feb. 3, 1900 – April 20, 1984), a famous cabaret artist and one of the foremost interpreters of popular American music. A portion of every Cabaret Convention at Sea fare will go to MMF, a nonprofit arts organization that honors Mercer’s memory through the support of events that celebrate the American songbook through the art form of Cabaret.
Seven Seas Voyager’s transatlantic journey departs Fort Lauderdale on April 30 for a crossing to Hamilton, Bermuda; Horta, Azores; Funchal, Madeira; and Malaga, Valencia and Barcelona, Spain. The itinerary also features seven luxurious days spent at sea.
