Life Drawing, Body painting and Bare Bums with the Bare Butlers
The Bare Butlers are known across New Zealand, with butlers available in many locations across the country. Upon our relaunch as Ocean Groove Cruises, we partnered with The Bare Butlers to offer our brides-to-be an exceptional choice of hen party entertainment. What we and our guests like most, is how The Bare Butlers show that topless doesn’t have to mean tacky. They pride themselves on delivering hilarious and sexy entertainment that guests of all ages and backgrounds will love. They keep it classy with games and entertainment options to suit all tastes and personalities. They offer services including: Topless waiters, Strip Tease, Life Drawing Classes and Body Painting Classes. We also find that they are not just popular with our hen parties, but also with our birthday and private cruises too!
Let a DJ entertain your guests
On-board DJ hire starts from $500 per cruise but offers your guests so much more than music. A DJ offers a fantastic way to keep your guests entertained by getting them up on the dance floor, telling jokes, having the odd heckle and of course taking an abundance of song requests from your guests – many that might be quite cheesy! Did someone say Aqua – Barbie Girl?
Have your own Drag Queen Extravaganza
We’re lucky to partner with the Legendary Caluzzi Cabaret who are known for their Award-winning Drag Queens. Located on Auckland’s legendary K Road, the ladies of Caluzzi are available to entertain you and your guests on-board your cruise. From the moment you step on-board, they are sure to have you laughing with their excellent comedy timing, personal service and dazzling costumes.
