They described, advertisted and introduced them on the ship as The Worlds No.1, Take That Tribute Band and 'The Greatest' didn't disappoint as they proved they really do Rule The World on Royal Caribbeans 'Grandeur of the Seas'!
The 74,000 ton luxury cruise liner, which recently had a $48 million refurbishment, took in Marseille, Corsica, Naples, Sicily, Malta and Palma de Mallorca in a 7 day tour of some of the Mediterraneans most exclusive locations during August 2012.
The Greatest Take That Tribute Show were flown over to pick up the ship in Naples to perform for just one night before departing 5 days later in Palma de Majorca and what a night it was! Two shows, lighting galore, a live 6 piece band and an ecstatic audience culminated in a night to be remembered.
The live band set list included, Back For Good, Rule The World, The Greatest Day, and many other hits as The Greatest treated the Palladium Theatre audience to a real Take That experience!
Will 'The Greatest' Take That Tribute Band be Back For Good with Royal Caribbean.............well we'll just have to wait and see, but on the strength of the response on the night, on board the ship the day after and from the quotes we've received since, I wouldn't be surprised!
"Saw The Greatest on board Royal Caribbean cruise last week and they were fantastic, best act of the week they brought the house down. Would love to see them again very authentic!"
"My Wife, Daughter and myself went along to see "The Greatest" take that tribute band recently while aboard Royal Caribbean's Grandeur of the seas and they were fantastic, so good in fact that we went along to the second performance as well! We have been on many cruise ships over the years and have seen many tribute bands on various ships and can honestly say that these guys are the best we've ever seen, so good in fact that we are driving down to Stoke on Trent this weekend to see them perform again".

NB: 'The Greatest' Take That Tribute are NOT to be mistaken with a completely different tribute show to Take That which has performed on Royal Caribbeans Independence of the Seas with very mixed reviews.
