Default Best and most reliable talent agents to contact for cruise s


Whilst there are umpteen talent agents who can book the cruises, there has to be some who have better cred than others.

We have a production show and are looking for reliable representation for the better ships and are trying to sift through the maze.

We have just came across this site and hopefully we can get some shortcuts here.

Any suggestions please?

check out this link

and some of the links are repeated here

to be honest - most of the cruise lines produce the 'production shows' in house, or have a company they've been working with for years. A pretty closed group.

RCI - in house - http://www.royalcaribbeanproductions.com
HAL - http://www.stilettoentertainment.com/
NCL and a few other lines http://www.jeanannryanproductions.com
I'm not 100% on who these folks produce for

if you actually have a 'headliner' act - Don Casino, Blackburn, Elaine Avon do most of the cruise ship bookings for big lines.

Many thanks for all that information and your time.

Yes our major act is a 'legendary star' (altho' that word is so bandied about now, it has lost it's real meaning) in another country and although not known outside of that area has an incredible track record and performance record. Right up to today his shows with his own band, are near full houses in the biggest clubs, with excellent critiques. It's been the same story for many many years.

Anyway not here to bore you or sell anything, just tyrying to get as much a 'feel' for the market we are trying to get into.

Once again your inforamtion is really appreciated.

Exclamation Talent agents


I have been searching, contacting, emailing to numerous talent agencies all over the world.
As an artistic and creative person and performer, I am fully concentrating on my act.
After all the time I spent to reach a promoter, I came to conclusion, that I must be a very bad in sales... Even though I put lots into diverse info letters, bios and introduction of the act, my emails leave unanswered.
I understand the nuances of show business and that the rejection is part of it. But being ignored certainly says a lot about the agencies...

Have anybody had any contact or name of an agency that can be recommended?

Thank you
