What it’s like to be a Magician on a Cruise Ship

Working on cruise ships has afforded me the special opportunity to see and visit parts of the world I otherwise may never have!

Russia, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Hawaii, the Caribbean, the French Riviera, the Mexican Riviera, The Amazon, Venice, Europe, and a host of other destinations have all been the sights of my performances and adventures!

I was able to swim with dolphins in Cozumel, cuddle with stingrays in the Caymans and fulfilled one of my life dreams, to catch King Salmon and Halibut in Alaska, which I did while performing on board Regents’ ship, Seven Seas Mariner, for the summer season.

I spent the majority of my time at sea entertaining on two Major Cruise Lines, Regent and Oceania.

I have also provided world-class entertainment on Silver Seas, Crystal, Royal Caribbean, Norwegian and Celebrity.

As the highest rated entertainer each summer I worked for Regent and Oceania, I was asked back season after season, culminating in a four month contract to entertain on the inaugural voyage of Oceania’s “Riviera”.

Working practically every evening during that tour allowed me to further hone my skills as a close-up magician, and as I strolled among the passengers in the bars and lounges I built up excitement and anticipation for my weekly stage presentations in the main theater – which created a sold out venue for my Mentalism Show!

I was able to further refine and shape my Mentalism Stage Show as these constant performances gave me a greater understanding of not only exactly what worked but also how to seamlessly interact with a full production crew- and these ships were equipped with the latest in theatrical technology!

All these skills have translated to my corporate and private shows, where I’m a Magician & Mentalist in Ft Lauderdale, and I also do Mentalism in Miami and NYC, as well as across the United States, and these shows now take up the bulk of my career.

Thank you Michael Day, Brett Bullock, Jan Stenning and others, for trusting me to entertain for all those years onboard your fine ships!
