Atlanta Magician and Speaker Joe M. Turner on Performance Team Named by USA TODAY as “Best in Cruise Entertainment”
Remember that cruise I performed on in June as a member of the “Magic Castle at Sea” program on Crystal Cruises? If you’ve followed my Twitter, Facebook, or Google+ pages, you saw some photos from my cruise through Scandinavia. (If not, click here and here.)
It was, of course, an amazing experience. Crystal is well-known as a premier luxury cruise line, having won top Conde Nast Traveler awards for many years in a row.
You can now add an outstanding magical accolade to that list!
Last week, USA TODAY highlighted Crystal Cruises’ “Magic Castle at Sea” program as part of their “Best in Cruise Entertainment” picks. Rich Bloch, the program’s creator, shared the news with all the performers on the team, along with Bret Bullock, Vice President of Entertainment for Crystal, and Dale Hindman, Executive Director of the Magic Castle.
The author of the article, Art Sbarsky, had this to say:
Crystal: Magic Castle at Sea
I love magic shows and Crystal’s new Magic Castle at Sea show is superb. In a small venue that hosts up to 25 guests at a time, professional magicians from the famous Magic Castle in Los Angeles do things with coins, cards and other objects that are simply amazing to witness close up. The magicians rotate through regularly, so even frequent cruisers have little chance of seeing the same performers. The show has been so popular that Crystal has expanded the number of performances per sailing. The best way to enjoy the sleight-of-hand: don’t try to figure it out, just watch and be amazed.[/gn_quote]
I’m already booked for three more cruises next year, and there will probably be more between now and then. Stay tuned!
