(5:15 a.m. BST) -- In partnership with charter event company Floating Festivals, Jane McDonald will appear on a special sailing onboard Anthem of the Seas in September 2020.
"Sail Away with Jane McDonald" will see the star takeover the 4,180-passenger Royal Caribbean ship for a week-long sailing that will include a live Q&A session and two different theatre performances.
The return cruise departs from Southampton on September 20, with calls to Cherbourg in France, Vigo in Spain and Lisbon in Portugal.
In a statement issued by Floating Festivals, Jane said: "I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am to be having my own special cruise. As everyone knows, I’m just a true Yorkshire lass who loves performing and enjoying a cruise or two, so it makes perfect sense to charter my own ship.
“This is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time so to finally have the opportunity to invite everyone to come on holiday with me is very exciting. We’ll have a whale of a time and I can’t wait to see everyone there.”
Jane’s trio of backing singers, The Bluebirds, will also perform their own show during the sailing, complemented by Royal's "We Will Rock You" West End style performance.
Jane is currently on a nationwide UK tour and most recently starred in the sixth series of Channel 5’s “Cruising with Jane McDonald" that saw her embark on a River Ganges voyage with Uniworld.
