Royal Caribbean’s “Allure of the Seas” will host the critically acclaimed Las Vegas Rat Pack Tribute Show - Drinkin’ Singin’ Swingin’. This high-energy, musical comedy will set sail for the Eastern Caribbean on October 27th of next year.

 Get ready for a sea of comedy and laughter as Royal Caribbean’s “Allure of the Seas” hosts one of the funniest and dazzling Rat Pack tribute shows ever to grace the Las Vegas strip.  Laff Productions presents "DRINKIN’ SINGIN’ SWINGIN’ Salute to Frank Sinatra - Sammy Davis Jr. - Dean Martin".  The show features three of the most sought-after entertainers in the business: Dave Halston, Bryan Clark and Rick Michel.

A captivating blend of swing, swagger and hilarious antics, this show is a laugh-a-minute spectacle that delivers “Las Vegas Cool” to a new generation while commanding standing ovation results!  According to Laff Productions representative Leslie Gregory, "the show is designed to excite the imagination with fabulous music, hilarious comedy and unforgettable fun aboard the largest cruise ship in the world."

Cruise Planners Manager Joe Krupski said, "This exciting Rat Pack cruise was planned because of market demand and incessant passenger requests.  The "Allure of the Seas" is a remarkable ship, so naturally, we wanted the finest Rat Pack Tribute Show in the world."

All three entertainers sport impressive on-stage pedigrees:

Notably, Rick Michel had the honor of being invited by master impressionist Rich Little to share the stage at the Bob Hope Celebrity Golf Classic, where comedic legend Bob Hope himself was in the audience along with President Ford and Frank Sinatra.

Dave Halston experienced an extraordinary career highlight when he delivered a command performance for Frank’s widow, Barbara Sinatra, who said Dave delivered a "wonderful performance" and was moved to tears by his commanding rendition of “My Way”. Dave has also performed for Jeanne Martin (Mrs. Dean Martin).

Bryan Clark has likewise centered his passion on "The Great American Song Book", presented with the backup of great swinging jazz groups. He's ever hungry for more of the music of class, as he puts it. Traveling the mid-Atlantic region as well as Nationally, Bryan is a commanding presence in keeping the "music of class" and its legacy alive.
