The Voice Of The Sea
TALENTS SET SAIL ON COSTA CRUISES: THE VOICE OF THE SEA ENRICHES THE ONBOARD ENTERTAINMENT

Starting from April 2016, the popular television talent show will be replicated on board of Costa ships, to ensure an experience even more enjoyable and engaging for you: The Voice of the Sea, based on the wildly popular international singing competition “The Voice”, broadcasted in more than 180 countries all over the world, will give an impressive boost to the onboard entertainment, while finding hidden gifted voices.

The launch of The Voice of the Sea will see Costa guests as true protagonists of the onboard entertainment: everyone feeling gifted with a particular timbre can challenge himself and other guests on the stage of the successful TV format, in an edition designed for ships’ theaters, boasting the same set scenes and situations with which the TV show’s audience is already familiar.

As soon as the cruise begins, guests will be encouraged to join specially created karaoke sessions, in order to select those who are ready to compete for the coveted trophy of The Voice of the Sea. Then it is time to perfect each performance, by refining personal abilities with musicians and voice coaches. Indeed, the singers will be entrusted to an expert guide with whom they will meet during the cruise to improve their capabilities and to finalize their exhibitions’ details, with the crucial support of the Costa Band. Shortly before the real show, participants will have a rehearsal on stage with the band, spectacular lighting and sound effects, just as it happens before the TV show.

At the time of the performance, a trio of Coaches, represented by professionals of the onboard entertainment and ships’ officials, will listen to the singers while being prevented to see the performance, and will decide to say "I want you" to the ones they prefer for their teams. Once the teams are completed, the Coaches will choose their finalists.

Then it is up to the audience to decide who will be the winner, thanks to a remote voting system that will allow to state personal preferences: once these are collected, the public will finally know the name of the winner of the Voice of the Sea.

Each show's winner will have the opportunity to be screened for future artist positions onboard a Costa ship.
