If you love music and you love cruising, there may be a music-themed cruise just made for you. All year long, ships sail with special musical guests from a wide array of genres, from old-school country to electronica.
A music-themed cruise lets you immerse yourself in your favorite sounds while enjoying all the features of the ship and visiting great ports, too. Here are a few that are coming up soon – some are currently sold out, but it can’t hurt to join the waiting list – plus some that you can book now for 2016.
The mellow sounds of Crosby, Stills & Nash will float from Cunard Line’s Queen Mary 2 Sept. 4-11 on a cruise from Southampton to New York. In addition to concerts, guests can attend autograph and Q&A sessions with the folk rock icons.
Norwegian Cruise Line’s Norwegian Pearl will be very busy this fall with a series of four-day, music-themed cruises. The ship will rock to the sounds of KISS on an Oct. 30-Nov. 3 cruise from Miami to Jamaica: that includes the Halloween weekend, a perfect time to enjoy the band known for elaborate stage makeup and costumes.
The Norwegian Pearl will host popular country band Florida Georgia Line Nov. 7-11, departing from Miami and cruising to Cozumel. In addition to three Florida Georgia Line performances, you can expect a few other country artists to pop up on board.
Club music and EDM stars Alison Wonderland, Dillon Francis and Diplo will have everyone dancing on the Norwegian Pearl’s Nov. 11-15 cruise from Miami to Cozumel. There will be six stages on board, plus an excursion to Cozumel’s Playa Mia Grand Beach and Water Park.
If smooth jazz is your style, Holland America Line offers two sailings of The Jazz Cruise, departing Jan. 10 and Feb. 21 from Ft. Lauderdale and sailing to the Dominican Republic, U.S. Virgin Islands and Bahamas. More than 100 jazz musicians will perform.
And, if you love Rock & Roll oldies, sign on for Royal Caribbean’s cruise on the Navigator of the Seas, Feb. 28-March 5. Artists like Phil Dirt & the Dozers and McGuffey Lane will take you back to prom night as you sail from Ft. Lauderdale to Grand Cayman, Jamaica and Labadee, Haiti.
There are themed cruises for lots of other interests, too, from food and wine to quilting, ghost hunting and tattoo art. To learn more, talk with Anita, your Cruise Holidays personal cruise expert.
