Cruising past COVID; rebooting gigs onboard

Cruise ships have recently returned to the seas, which means entertainers are back on stages as the gig industry reboots.

Brett Annable describes what he does as being, ‘less about cruise ship entertainment, and more about art’.

Annable is Head of Entertainment for P&O Cruises Australia, and is charged with organising the entertainment across a fleet of three ships, each with around six stages or entertainment venues and featuring rotating acts and dozens of performers at any one time.
