"Lucky me since I found these great people almost 4 years ago."


Lucky me since I found these great people almost 4 years ago. I've been working on ships since then: 10 contracts, 7 companies, lot of countries, tons of pizza, musical improvement, unique experiences. THANKS LIME, ALWAYS! That’s what I have to say. If you’ve never tried to work on ships before, fear not! Working on ships as a musician is A TOTAL PRIVILEGE, and Lime is the greatest agency ever to help you through it. Spread the word... "

"Every time someone asks me about a cruise ship gig, the first thing I tell them to do is to hit up my buddies Sam and Fede, and they'll take care of everything else. "


Never having worked for a cruise ship band before, I was very confused and in the dark about everything I needed to do and who I needed to speak to about possibly working on one. When I was introduced to Federico and Sam at Lime Entertainment, all my worries vanished. They made sure to point me in the right direction from the very first email. Everything from forms, applications, and medical exams, to scheduling an audition around my time, and finally putting me on a ship around the time that I had requested (which was ASAP and got on a ship within two weeks of passing the audition and turning everything in). Not only did they help me with everything beforehand, they also checked in periodically to make sure everything was going well, and were totally open to questions/comments/concerns. Ironically enough, the band members I was paired with were also good friends with them, and as a result the band chemistry came quickly and friendship immediately ensued. Not only did Fede and Sam make sure that I was taken care of as an employee of the company, but I also gained two good friends that always pointed me in the right direction with comfort and trust. Every time someone asks me about a cruise ship gig, the first thing I tell them to do is to hit up my buddies Sam and Fede, and they'll take care of everything else. Thank you, Sam, Fede, and Lime for allowing me the opportunity to work with some super talented and professional folk! Lime rocks! "

Thank you, Fede, for this awesome treat to Uruguayan barbecue while in Barcelona, and lunch with Sam back in Ft. Lauderdale. I am thankful for your support and checking in with me. Lime Entertainment is the way to go. Thank you, gentlemen! "

"I feel Lime has been the best way for me to get into the cruise ship world. "


I feel Lime has been the best way for me to get into the cruise ship world. Not only did they give me the best contract out front, they´ve been most supportive in all the paperwork process (which is quite daunting at the beginning). Also, Fede has been very kind in helping me with my girlfriend trying to match our contracts. I couldn´t have asked for a better team to do this with. Rock on Lime!! "

"The best about Lime is that Fede And Sam are musicians. "


The best about Lime is that Fede And Sam are musicians. They really know the gig and they understand musicians’ interests, worries, and goals – they are colleagues. Always grateful with the opportunity they gave me!! "

They solved our travel emergency on our way to the ship, in the middle of the night!


“We are really happy to have such a great agency as Lime Entertainment!! Let us tell you what happened to us recently: we faced a big issue when flying to our next contract on the Carnival Pride.
When we arrived to the Kiev airport (I say “we” because my wife and I are a String Duo), and try to check in for the flight, the airline representative tells us that my wife’s ticket has been cancelled, who knows why! We had our tickets beforehand, but for some reason hers was not good anymore. We called Fede as an emergency (I think it was 3 or 4 AM where he lives), so he could help us with our issue. And Fede did something extraordinary! He got in touch with Carnival right away, and he got my wife a new plane ticket, but that wasn’t enough for Fede ☺. Because she was going to be sent on a different flight than mine (I didn’t have any issues with my original ticket), he got Carnival to change my flight as well, so we could travel together! Our new flight was even 30 minutes earlier than the original one, but because of Fede’s fast response (he solved everything within 15 minutes!), we had time to check in with the new airline, and to have a coffee before our long flight to the US.
So yeah! Lime in our corner 24/7, literally!
Besides this particular circumstance, the whole Lime team are really nice and pleasant people to work with.
Keep it up, guys!
As my friend Tina would say: you are simply the best!”


Pablo Nava
Lime’s auditions department

As part of the Lime team, I started as a musician, as a guitarist in the showband. All my contracts were awesome, and I had lots of great experiences traveling all around the globe, gigging with some great musicians, and meeting some awesome people that became my friends.
Now I’ve changed my position, and I’m part of Lime’s auditions department! It gives me great pride to be a part of the Lime team, seeing musicians from every corner of the world setting out for new adventures and new experiences.
I wish you all the best!

“Lime Entertainment was invaluable in helping me get my first contract...”


“Lime Entertainment was invaluable in helping me get my first contract. Between the tremendous amount of paperwork and the extensive medical process, I don’t think I could have ever done it all on my own. They were very hands-on and quick to answer any of my questions. I felt like they truly cared and wanted to help me get on board. I’d recommend them to anyone interested in working on ships!”

“You are the best agency in the whole f***ing world.”


“Close the deal, Fede! Once again, thanks a million from the bottom of my heart – you are the best agency in the whole f***ing world!”

“Proactive, professional, and thorough.”


"Sam and Fede are always on top of their game, willing to give 110% to make their clients feel comfortable and taken care of. They secured my first cruise ship contract, on a great ship, and took the time to personally attend to each and every need and concern I had, even sending periodic emails to check up on me. Proactive, professional, and thorough. The whole experience was a pleasure! Thank you again, guys!"

“Due to Lime I’ve had nothing but positive experiences.”


"I started working on cruise ships thanks to Lime and I've had nothing but positive experiences due to all the help, suggestions and work provided by Fede and Sam. They helped me a great deal in all aspects of the job and that has made it a success for all of us. I'm really thankful to them and this words are just a humble way to reciprocate."

“Thoroughly committed to helping me find meaningful work.”


"After working with other cruise line agents that were less than mediocre, Lime Entertainment was the change I needed. Not only did they help me find work with a cruise line that appreciated my abilities and commitment to being the best vocalist I could be, but they showed me a great deal of respect and were thoroughly committed to helping me find meaningful work.
Sam and Fede were always a mouse click or phone call away and have been such a blessing and encouraging force in my career!"

“I don't think another agency would have been as tolerant or as helpful.”


“Lime Entertainment really are great. Federico from Lime Entertainment was so helpful when it came to organizing my C1/D visa and was able to mediate with RCCL when it came round to obtaining my medical due to a pre-existing condition. I don't think another agency would have been as tolerant or as helpful. Very great guys to work with.”

“They are a fantastic group of people, and I can't be more satisfied about the way that they do their job.”


“I've been working for Lime Entertainment a couple of years now. They are a fantastic group of people, and I can't be more satisfied about the way that they do their job. They constantly take care of every situation and condition that any of their musicians can be involved, like when I lost my luggage in one of my contracts! It got sent to the ship in less than week, thanks to the exceptional work of Federico and Sam! I feel proud to be part of this team and I respect even more the fact that all the musicians who work with them have a high professional standard.”

"Fede and Sam have always quickly and consistently responded to any concerns I've had.”


"Fede and Sam have always quickly and consistently responded to any concerns I've had for the last 9 months I've worked with them, and as a first contractor, the reassurance really helped to settle my nerves. They are genuinely good guys, and working with them is a breeze."

“Thanks to Lime, I traveled to places I would have never thought of going!”


“Sam and Fede have always been really helpful. Thanks to them, during the last year, I have traveled to places I would have never thought of going! From Alaska to Hawaii, all the way around South America, up to the Caribbean and even through the Amazon River! My first year with Lime Entertainment has been incredibly rewarding as a professional musician and as a curious traveler, while at the same time I was saving money for my personal long-term projects as a musician.
Lime has a friendly and professional environment, and they always reply fast, mainly when needed them the most, like the time I lost my flight to Miami to join the ship and totally panicked! Sam got me a new flight within 30 minutes!
As an agency, Lime Entertainment has proved to be really helpful in finding a common ground between cruise lines and my personal interest, offering contracts that fit my personal needs and goals.”

“Always ready to answer my questions and help me with any inconvenience.”

“Always willing to help and come up with solutions to any issues.”


“Sam and Fede are great people, always willing to help and come up with solutions to any issue that you find in your way of becoming a cruise musician. They got me a contract for 6 months to Australia, which was cancelled, because the Australian Embassy denied me the visa, but when Lime called me to tell me it was cancelled, they also told me they had another contract for me, starting the same day! And with a better itinerary! I didn’t even had time to feel disappointed about the whole issue! I hope to work for many years on cruise ships, with Lime on my side! They certainly are the best agency out there."

“If you want to get a cruise ship contract quickly .. I only can recommend you try Lime.”


"Sam and Fede are really efficient, flexible and very friendly! They always find me contracts which match my needs, in a matter of days! And they make the "paperwork part" as painless as possible. I also was well looked after while onboard, and was able to change even my position in one contract upon my request. Some big agencies state that they don't take commission, but actually, I ended up with the same salary others got through those agencies; Lime is really transparent, and in my case, they were very flexible and helpful about my special (and delayed) payment circumstances. All in all, if you want to get a cruise ship contract quickly, stress free and with double support, I only can recommend you try Lime Entertainment."

"Working with Lime Entertainment was a fantastic experience."


"Working with Lime Entertainment was a fantastic experience. Sam and Federico went out of their way to make sure I felt prepared for my first contract as a cruise ship musician, and were always available to answer my questions. From the very first email I received from Federico, I could tell that working with Lime was going to be an enjoyable process. Their prompt and professional communication style really made an impression on me. They always responded quickly to emails and phone messages with clear and reliable information—not something I experienced with other agencies I looked at before finding Lime!"

"Lime Entertainment has treated me great!"


"Lime Entertainment has treated me great! Immediately following my cruise ship audition they provided me with a specific contract they had in mind for me which they were able to book within a week. Sam knew my Musical Director personally and was able to send me some of the music in advance and give me personal tips on what to expect for my first contract. I've heard many of my band-mates and other talent complain about their agencies, none of which I've been able to share."

"Fede and Sam are very nice people and did an awesome job."


"Fede and Sam are very nice people and did an awesome job. They always have been there for Visa, Medical, and other issues, responding quickly whether there's a problem or not. I highly recommend Lime Entertainment to anyone looking for a cruise ship gig!"

"My first contract as a cruise ship musician was full of great memories and experiences and I was able to enjoy all of my time on the cruise because I had Sam and Federico to rely on."


"Before leaving my home town, I was very worried about working on the cruise because it was my first contract and didn't know how everything was going to work out, but Sam and Federico explained everything to me very clearly so I was able to do everything without stressing. They are very friendly people and they reply to my emails very quickly even though we live in a different country.
When I was having a hard time on the ship, Sam and Federico was always there to help me out. They are very experienced with what they do and they gave me great advice.
Overall, I'm glad that I chose Lime Entertainment for my first contract as a cruise ship musician, and I'm excited to work on my second contract with them."

"Lime Entertainment really is a great agency for anyone who wants to be a cruise ship musician"


"Lime Entertainment really is a great agency for anyone who wants to be a cruise ship musician, and they always work hard for you. For example, Federico from Lime was so helpful when it came to organizing my C1/D visa. He called the embassy for me and he explained to me how to fill out the paperwork. They are the best!" "
