Thursday, 05 February 2009

The UK and Ireland's leading cruise retailer, Cruise118, is offering people in Belfast the chance to see a host of top music and comedy stars perform in concert free of charge.

Household names including Susan McCann, The Chevys, Big O and May McFettridge will join TV and Radio legend Gerry Anderson for a night of unmissable entertainment at the Belfast Europa Hotel on Monday 9th February.

The exclusive free concert will preview Cruise118's Irish Entertainment cruise setting sail on July 18th this year, featuring all of the acts performing at the Europa and more.

The luxurious Black Prince ship will host this unique line up of entertainment for eight nights of sun, music and fun touring the Spanish and Portuguese coast and stopping at beautiful Iberian destinations along the way.

Mal Barrit, director at Cruise118, said: "The free concert we are organising at the Europa will really whet the appetites of those joining us for the cruise in July.

"It will also provide the perfect opportunity for those thinking of booking to check out the entertainment in advance and speak with our cruise concierges to find out all about the cruise.

"With locations such as Oporto, Lisbon and Gijón to enjoy, as well as fantastic entertainment on board, it's the perfect setting to enjoy a week in the sun this summer."

Other names from the world of music and entertainment coming onboard are special guest star Jimmy Buckley, Jimmy Young tribute and William Caulfield.
