Sip & Sail away with us on the high seas...

Vocalist Nikki Steen and bassist Larry Steen invite you to cozy up with your favorite cocktail
and prepare for a special voyage across the ocean to tour their favorite destinations.

Wanderlust

Nikki and Larry discussed cruising, culture, adventure, and art on their very first rendezvous over coffee in 2004. Having toured extensively and performed with multiple cruise lines, they knew quickly that they had found like-minded partners who shared a passion to wander! They’ve since traveled the world together, breaking bread and popping corks - making music, memories, and friends along the way. The creation of their current onboard shows resulted from their desire to connect with fellow travelers who share their vision for greater humanity through more exposure to it.

An Intimate Journey

Combining evocative music with dance and powerful imagery, the duo presents an intimate and engaging alternative to many production shows, alluring an audience that is discerning, intrepid, and culturally curious.

The shows

The first of the two onboard shows can be described as "a musical TED talk" which uses compelling stories and projected images from around the globe to  explore the values and virtues of travel to humankind.

The second show is a  foray into Nikki & Larry's more personal adventures, including the remarkable people, places, and experiences they've encountered on their journeys.

About Nikki

Nikki's folks often joke that she exited the womb in a cartwheel with a microphone in hand! She has since sung and danced around the world, entertaining passengers with her soulful sound, quick wit, and passionate dance moves. She has worked extensively as an actress doing film, television, and stage work in Los Angeles, but began her career training as a gymnast and a dancer, earning a scholarship from the prestigious Duprée Dance Academy.

Onboard Fitness & Dance Instruction

The vocalist continues to work as a dancer and fitness trainer in Los Angeles, and brings these skills to the high seas to teach and train passengers when she's on break from her performance schedule.

About Larry

Larry has toured extensively and worked with such artists as Stevie Wonder, Barry Manilow, and Mel Tormé, to name a few. When he isn't on tour or making music on the high seas, he works as a bassist in Los Angeles where he is in demand for his skills on electric and upright basses, as well as acoustic bass guitar. The instrumentalist likes to bring his vast knowledge of world music, jazz, funk, and classical to all his creative endeavors. The bass player's other passion and profession is capturing images of the places and people he's encountered on his travels.

Onboard photography workshops

Many of his photographs are featured in his onboard music shows, and he loves to avail himself for lectures and discussions with passengers when he isn't on the bandstand.

About the couple

Since their first coffee in 2004, Nikki and Larry have logged dozens of voyages together, after which they return to their beautiful home in Encino to reunite with their pup, hit the gym and dance studio, arrange new music, edit their latest travel photos and search for empty walls on which to hang them! The couple have toured with multiple cruise lines, including Silversea, Holland America, Cunard and Carnival, and plan to always continue making music and memories on the high seas.
