"Marlene Arden, top class musician, vocalist. Marlene has worked on various Princess Ships with me, and during my role as Cruise Director, found her to be the "Consummate Host" in any show lounge I have asked her and her talented musicians to play. A wide and varied variety of music for your listening or dancing pleasure."

She and her group make the Ensemble Lounge a great place to spend time and I know the guests feel at home while they are there.I really enjoyed working with the Marlene Arden Quartet.

"As one who travels and appreciates the First Class Experience and Beauty of Celebrity Cruises, I met Marlene on a Celebrity Solstice cruise almost 4 years ago. I wandered into the lounge in which she and her quartet were performing on the first of 7 nights and returned every night after for more. Her style, arrangements, and repertoire belong on cruise ship where taste matters to most of the guests."
