RSSC's all-suite, all-balcony Seven Seas Voyager will host the fourth edition of the Mabel Mercer Foundation (MMF)'s annual Cabaret Convention at Sea 2008. The event will be featured aboard Seven Seas Voyager's 14-night transatlantic journey from Fort Lauderdale to Spain, departing April 30, 2008.
The cast of talented and distinguished Broadway cabaret stars will include Marilyn Maye, Billy Stritch, K T Sullivan, Steve Ross and James Followell, who will entertain guests with shows throughout the voyage. Guests will have the opportunity to interact with the stars at special, "members-only" events.
The event is a tribute to Mabel Mercer (Feb. 3, 1900 - April 20, 1984), a famous cabaret artist and one of the foremost interpreters of popular American music. A portion of every Cabaret Convention at Sea fare will go to MMF, a nonprofit arts organization that honors Mercer's memory through the support of events that celebrate the American songbook through the art form of Cabaret.
Seven Seas Voyager's transatlantic journey departs Fort Lauderdale on April 30 for a crossing to Hamilton, Bermuda; Horta, Azores; Funchal, Madeira; and Malaga, Valencia and Barcelona, Spain. The itinerary also features seven luxurious days spent at sea.
