Magic at Sea

Derren Brown by Indigo Goat

If, in the next few days, the English Channel becomes something like the Bermuda Triangle then we shall know why. Magician and illusionist Derren Brown is currently onboard a P&O Cruise, the Aurora, as it sails from Southampton to Le Harve via Zeebruge.

The Aurora is P&O’s classic British cruise ship and regularly has great entertainment events such as Derren Brown’s trickery shows. This is on top of a Marco Pierre White restaurant, 12 bars, 3 pools, regular music festivals, a theatre, a spa/gym and a cinema.

In preparation for the cruise, Brown tweeted: “Forgive me if no Tweets til Saturday. Friday hellish busy, probably seasick and offline until then. Enjoy life, land-lubbers.”

On Wednesday, he was preoccupied by the launch of his book saying: “Heading off on cruise in over-stuffed van. Buy a sodding book so we don’t have to take them all back.” Whilst onboard, Brown tweeted that “everyone- crew and passengers seem really lovely. Like a big family. Still a bit daunted by the pressure…”

His photos show that he has already been exploring certain off-limit areas onboard the Aurora. Lets hope he doesn’t get bombarded with too questions from passengers desperate to know about the next lottery results!

The Aurora’s upcoming cruises include two and a half weeks in the Black Sea, and two and a half weeks in the Med.

  1. Hate to say it, but Magic is definitely becoming less and less popular as an entertainment – perhaps all this CGI trickery at the movies raises people’s surprise thresholds!
