Princess Cruises is asking travel agents to send in a short clip of them singing to be in the chance of winning The Voice of the Ocean taking place at the CLIA Conference 2019.

And this year the finalists will have the opportunity to perform at the O2 Guildhall Southampton – a stage which for nearly 50 years has hosted some of the biggest global talent from Adele to Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones, David Bowie and Amy Winehouse to name a few!

The prize

Successful entries will get the opportunity to spend a day onboard Sapphire Princess on April 16, 2019 to audition in front of our coaches Tony Roberts, vice president, Princess Cruises UK & Europe , Lucy Huxley, editor-in-chief, Travel Weekly Group and Andy Harmer, SVP membership and director, UK and Ireland, CLIA – three of the toughest cruise industry vocalists there are! The contestants will further receive a dining experience onboard during the day and a £20 lifestyle voucher for reaching this far in the competition.

After the contestants have performed onboard, the coaches will choose one of the contestants for their team who will then sing in the LIVE final in the O2 Guildhall Southampton at the CLIA Conference on May 16, 2019 where a winner will be crowned by the LIVE audience.

The winner will receive an exclusive VIP trip onboard the inaugural preview sailing of Sky Princess, launching in October 2019!

Onboard you will have the opportunity to experience premium dining, our rejuvenating Lotus Spa, thrilling entertainment, beautiful pools and a full day to explore the stunning port of Kotor in Montenegro.
