I was on a cruise where a celebrity performed for one night. It was a major celebrity, not the cruise-line's entertainers - I understand they travel with the cruise. The entirety of the cruise was 28 days.
But in this case, the show was in the middle of seven days at sea, and I couldn't imagine they would stay on the boat for the whole cruise. My question is whether a major, one-night-only celebrity (in this case, stand-up comic Chris Rock):
- Stayed on the cruise the entire duration,
- Arrived four days prior in Barbados, traveled the seven days at sea (performing in the middle) and departed in Portugal, or
- Had joined the cruise by a boat or helicopter (? is that possible) or some other means just for the evening.
We were a large group, arranged by a fortunate friend to be in several suites ($$$); presuming that is the section a star would stay and nobody would miss him about the boat, but we only saw the performance. I understand someone can spend the entirety of seven or twenty-eight days inside their suite, but I don't suspect they would.
Do celebrities spend the entire duration of a cruise, just the at-sea required days, or do they transport in somehow for the night of the event?
EDIT: If it needs clarification (for facilities that the celebrity could have used for transport), this was on board the Seabourn Odyssey between Barbados and Portugal.
