Celebrity Cruise Lines

September 2003 – May 2014

Headline Theater and cabaret shows with full big band orchestrations, incorporating singing, dancing, and “showbiz” acts. Piano bar and lounge entertainer incorporating great music, witty conversation, and comedy entertainment. Created a loyal fan base numbering in the thousands who cruise solely to see my stage shows and piano bar repertoire.

At the request of Celebrity Cruises’ heads of entertainment Michael Thomas and Chris Jurassis, I signed a long term contract with Celebrity Cruises. Performed nine consecutive years on Celebrity Cruises’ flagship “Celebrity Constellation” from 2003 to 2012. These years were filled with busy nights in “Michael’s Club” piano lounge that were standing room only. During this time, a loyal fan base numbering in the thousands cruised year after year to be entertained by Perry Grant. Fans from Perry’s Holland America and Princess Cruises days cruised exclusively on Perry’s ship during this time. Performed headline entertainer stage shows with full band arrangements and cabaret shows (with onboard show band). In February 2013, Celebrity Cruises transferred Perry to the brand new “Celebrity Eclipse” cruise ship where he performed in the Sky Lounge. This massive venue was required to seat hundreds of fans simultaneously (Michael’s Club was too small). Over 5,000 loyal fans booked cruises to be entertained by Perry Grant. This resulted in thousands of new fans and increased bookings for Celebrity Cruises. Perry Grant “Fan Club” reunion cruises regularly take place throughout the year where huge numbers of fans cruise together to have fun and great evenings of entertainment.
