Default Mamma Mia! Coming to Quantum Of The Seas next fall.

When Quantum Of The Seas debuts next fall, the ship will feature the hit Broadway musical "Mamma Mia!" So, ABBA fans and all of you Dancing Queens out there better get your cruise booked now!

Good grief...Abba on the brain can be toxic.

I am a big fan of Abba. I saw Mamma Mia in DC. and in Las Vegas. I have seen the movie several times.


It would be great to see it on a beautiful Royal Ship.

I guess you won't be visiting this website for a while then...

Not a hater here...but thought they'd bring something more current to Quantum. Oh well...maybe something else on Anthem.

Have not seen Mamma Mia in New York or Vegas so Quantum will be the first time to see it. Have seen the movie though.

The rumors were Wicked was going to be on Quantum.

No I won't visit that website. I did not open it, because if they don't like Abba I would not like their views.

Default Hope they change Chicago to Mamma Mia

Quite frankly I like Chicago but I am tired of the show and would hope that Mamma Mia might be a replacement.

No more carefree laughter
Silence ever after
Walking through an empty house, tears in my eyes
Here is where the story ends, this is goodbye

Knowing me, knowing you,
There is nothing we can do,
Knowing me, knowing you.....

They were closer now Fernando.
Every hour every minute seemed to last eternity.
I was so afraid Fernando.
We were young and full of life and none of us prepared to die.
And I'm not ashamed to say,
The roar of guns and cannons almost made me cry.

Very few people do not like ABBA and their music. It is impossible to hear their music and not feel it throughout your entire body. It is an experience, rather than just hearing music. Here in the community where I live, The Villages, local performers have a Mamma Mia Brunch frequently at one of the 'resident only' clubs. It is always mobbed with folks having the time of their lives. Glad to hear Mamma Mia will be on the Quantum.

Not so sure....

They had a "Anti-ABBA" party at one of the Vegas hotels last January - more than 1500 people showed up. They played YouTube, AL Yankovic, and other Parody music making fun of that group all night long.

Shame they couldn't do something far better for Quantum than a dated musical with 1970's karaoke-sounding music.

Very glad I was not at that party. I prefer to associate with positive, upbeat people. Not those who get some perverted enjoyment in being critical and judgmental of the more successful among us. Some people see life colored in white and pastel colors, others see it in black, dark and foreboding colors. Different strokes for different folks.

For the most part I agree - the party was at a hotel near where I was staying.

Some of the attendees poured into the Vegas streets during and afterwards. From all appearances...it was actually more of an upbeat party overall where people who happened not to like ABBA bonded.

Anyway...I personally like almost any kind of music. That said, I think the choice for Mamma Mia on Quantum is indeed very weak. Having seen numerous Broadway productions - on Broadway itself as well as other venues - there are plenty of choices that would likely be more mainstream well-received. Just my 2 cents.

I would not now from personal experience, but it must be sad to hate everything.
