"The Princess Theater Featured the Song Stylings of Sonia Selbie, I chose her concert and it was dynamite!"
"The headliner at tonight’s show was as English female singer, Sonia Selbie. She had a great voice and personality and I thoroughly enjoyed her performance."
Cruise Critic - Enchantment of the Seas
"We saw a singer with such a cornucopia of talent I watched open mouthed. Sonia Selbie was amazing. I hadn't seen her before this cruise. I am sorry for that. I could have watched her more than the two times she was on. If you ever get the chance to see her don't miss it. She reminded me very much of Judy Garland at times. What a talent!"
Cruise Critic - MS Rotterdam
The entertainment has also been better than expected. Last night a British woman, Sonia Selbie, vocally imitated the likes of Karen Carpenter, Patsy Cline, Adele, Liza Minelli, as well as doing her own version of I Dreamed a Dream, from Les Miserables. We met Sonia on the elevator earlier, and to hear her talk with her thick British accent, completely threw us off guard for what was in store for us.
Watched a singer Sonia Selbie not once but twice! She really has a strong voice. Reminded me of Barbara Streisand when she sang
Tonight’s headliner is Sonia Selbie – a perky singer with a lot of movement and a pretty big voice. Her show was very entertaining She made her way through the audience while singing “Downtown” but her showstopper was “I Dreamed a Dream”. Not many singers have the range and pipes to do that song but she pulled it off.
