Guests exiting the theater and strolling by will be met with a new scene every night in Times Square. With dueling pianos on the lower level, high-energy hits, playing popular ballads and unforgettable anthems, guests will be encouraged to sing along! Each evening of the cruise, music will be themed after a different era, from old time jukebox favorites, disco and classic rock, to 80s and hits of today! The New York atmosphere lights up the evening as guests join in the countdown to watch a New Year’s Eve-inspired ball drop on a different decade every night!
