The biggest cruise ship in the world, Allure of the Seas, is coming to be quite the film star. Not content with being the location for scenes from the forthcoming Adam Sandler move Jack and Jill, it is about to feature in a series of shorts including this one (above) starring Jenny McCarthy.
The film, which is former Playboy model McCarthy’s debut as a director, is a rom-com called The Allure of Love. The film, which is former Playboy model McCarthy’s debut as a director, is called The Allure of Love and tells the story of two friends trying to get McCarthy back together with an ex-boyfriend. It will be premiered on Royal Caribbean’s website on March 13.
Another short, Royal Reunion, directed by James Brolin, brings together a couple celebrating their 40th anniversary on board ship, together with their son, daughter-in-law and grand-daughter – and another son whose arrival does not go according to plan.
They sound like much more fun than straightforward TV commercials, and perhaps there’s an opportunity for Captain Greybeard to create another, drawing on his experience in two productions of A Murder Mystery On The High Seas. That’s me in the middle (below) alongside Cunard entertainments director Amanda Reid, on stage in Queen Mary 2’s Royal Court Theatre.
Yes, I know. “Don’t call us, we’ll call you . . . ”
The Allure of Love and Royal Reunion will debut on March 13 during an exclusive premiere event on board Royal Caribbean International’s Allure of the Seas in in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Immediately following the premiere, Jenny McCarthy (@jennymccarthy) will host a Twitter party from 10.00 pm to 11.00 pm to discuss the films and her experiences on Allure of the Seas.
