    The website does not list any skaters names, just basics about the shows.

    I would not expect to see any "stars," she is likely to see Nationals level skaters who didn't place high enough to be on World or Olympic teams, or even skaters who never made it to Nationals but tried out for the cruise shows and were accepted. That said, it should still be an enjoyable show. Royal Caribbean lists a skater named Matt Kessinger as Ice Captain for the Mariner of the Seas. He listed himself participating in the Olympic trials in 1998. I don't recall him ever medalling at Nationals in the Senior level, but he certainly seems to be enjoying what he does now!

    Also, note that he points out there is no "lead skater."

    Actually there have been several national canadian skaters who also had internationals that have been skaters - I believe Christopher Maybee was one and others too? I also had a friend who watched the show on the cruise and was surprised how good it was and compared it to any of the fluff events you see on land.. so have fun

    As far as I know, Chris Mabee is still working the cruise ship circuit, although I couldn't tell you exactly where. He's the only elite international skater I can think of ('06 4CC Silver Medalist, '07 Canadian Silver Medalist and World team member).

    Sean Rodgers has been quoted in an ice network articles saying he can do a quad on the teeny tiny cruise ship ice rinks.

    Even if they aren't "big names" RCCL only uses excellent skaters.

    (The one Sylvia linked to isn't the one I was talking about- it was in one of the Inside Edge Columns)

    I remember seeing Matt's Nationals freeskate on TV. It's nice to hear him doing well.

    I took the cruise last year-- Chris Mabee was the skate manager or some sort-- Shaun was on board, a girl from Salt Lake City whose name escapes me (she was with Szabovcik when she was eligible), and there was a US pairs team who were just asked to leave before we boarded the ship-- they weren't a team when they were eligible-- but professionally. There was a British male with an American female partner, too.

    How was the quality of the skating and the show in general?

    The shows involve harnesses and a bit of flying so it's quite exciting. The ice is very small but you'll still see some decent jumps and spins. I was very pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed the shows. Of course a few minutes (hours... days...) in the Martini bar before the show really helps.
    I guess the hard thing for a lot of people to accept is why God would allow me to go running through their yards, yelling and spinning around.

    Chris maybee has been on oasis and independence.

    IIRC Erica Risseeuw and Robert Paxton are there (although they might not be now but it sounds familiar so I have a feeling that is the one they joined.)
