How to Become a Fly-In Entertainer on Cruise Ships

Fly-In entertainers on cruise ships are commonly called “guest entertainers.” Guest entertainers may fly in to perform for a day or so and off they go to the next gig. On most cruise ships, you won’t find big name entertainers, but this doesn’t mean the acts are not good! Cruise ships routinely hire comedians, dancers, singers, variety acts, and more. Many cruise ships prefer to work with an agent or agency, so please keep this in mind if you are considering taking the plunge into cruise ship entertainment.

To sign up with an agency or agent, you must submit a polished resume and sample of your work. This means, you must submit a video of your act or routine directly to the agency. If they like what they see, you will get a call for an audition. If the audition goes well, you will be placed on their list of talent. You may request the venue you would like to work for whether it’s a cruise ship or if you prefer to work a land-based circuit such as parties and other social gatherings.

To sign up with an agency, you can try an of the entertainment agencies listed below, provided by Red Bird Studios. You can also try a placement agency such as:
