NANTA at Sea for Star Cruises

Star Cruises will showcase the globally acclaimed Korean comedy show NANTA (Cookin’), 난타; 乱打秀 exclusively onboard SuperStar Gemini.

In conjunction with the year-end holiday season from Nov 14 2014 till Jan 2 2015, fans onboard can now revel at Korea’s finest & longest running show and enjoy this Broadway hit, while cruising to various enchanting Asian destinations such as Kuala Lumpur, Malacca, Penang and Langkawi (Malaysia).

For the very first time, the highly anticipated NANTA talented troupe of Korean performers will embark on a voyage of discovery and surprise with Star Cruises.

During these exciting NANTA theme cruises, leisure seekers and Cookin’ fans will be treated to an amazing and unique culinary-percussion experience, which will keep everyone in awe and wanting more. It will definitely be a feast on the senses.

NANTA, the simple yet humorous action-packed musical first debuted in 1997. The premise of the show is weaved by three half-baked chefs told to prepare a banquet feast in just one hour by their hardnosed manager, with his incompetent nephew added to this pressed situation.

The kitchen gang then beat, tap and drum their way around the kitchen, chopping furiously and sending food flying all over the place.

This energetic and highly engaging show combines the quartet’s pulsating percussion melodies with Samulnori (traditional Korean music). ‘NANTA’ means to strike relentlessly and throughout this non-verbal theatrical performance, the enthralling music is creatively innovated from improvised instruments of traditional Korean water drums, to cooking utensils like pots, whisks and even carving knives. It is truly sensational to witness the transformation of kitchen crockery into fabulous musical instruments.

The nonstop rhythm is complemented by simple humor and narrated by the hapless chefs. 

Audiences will also have the opportunity to step-up on stage and join the rhythmic flow.

“This year marks Star Cruises 21st Anniversary, as we continue to celebrate our milestone successes as the cruise pioneer in Asia. We are very excited to present the highly anticipated “NANTA At Sea” cruises on SuperStar Gemini (14 Nov 2014 – 2 Jan 2015). The K-Pop Wave has gained much popularity and this preferred choice of trend-setting entertainment will definitely appeal to many holidaymakers. We envisioned a unique and memorable experience for all our valued passengers, as they reconnect with their loved ones for an exhilarating family vacation at sea in absolute freedom, while taking pleasure in this Broadway hit, which is available exclusively during the “NANTA At Sea” cruises,” said Michael Goh, Senior Vice President – Sales, Star Cruises.

Passengers can also look forward to an up close and personal experience with the NANTA cast at the special meet & greet sessions.
