Crystal Cruises is Magic
Crystal Cruises are introducing a new magic entertainment act onboard its two luxury cruise ships - Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity - by exclusive arrangement with Master Magician Rich Bloch featuring magicians from Hollywood's renowned private magicians' club, the Magic Castle.
The Magic Castle is the private clubhouse for the Academy of Magical Arts, an organisation devoted to the advancement of the art of magic. The purpose of The Academy is to encourage and promote public interest in the art of magic with emphasis on preserving its history as an art form, entertainment medium, and hobby. The Academy has grown into a world-renowned fraternal organisation with a membership of nearly 5,000.
The new evening shows take place in the Pulse or Luxe lounge, where the rooms will be transformed into a Victorian-era Castle, with flameless candles, lighting, music, murals, bookshelves and magic movies from the 1920's. With attendance limited to just 25, audience members will experience close up magic, sleight-of-hand tricks, ad illusions.
The new magic shows are "invitation-only", with advance, complimentary "invitations"/tickets available at the ships' libraries. Guests can choose from multiple, half-hour performances over the course of several nights.
There will also be free classes for adults to develop their own magical acts, educational enrichment, and children's shows on select summer and holiday sailings.
Once the holiday is over, invitations can further be used for one-time access to the real Magic Castle in Hollywood.
