Few music gatherings can offer adventure in addition to entertainment, but Jam Cruise is a different EXPERIENCE than any other music event out there. Where else can one see the sunrise over a Caribbean island as you sing “You Are My Sunshine” with fifty strangers and roaming troubadours? See a herd of zebra-striped party people stampede down gangways? Hobnob with the inventors of funk and rock while they too have the time of their lives? Watch the best musicians on earth while percolating in a hot tub under blue skies on the open sea? The answer: nowhere else besides Jam Cruise!
The 10th sailing of Jam Cruise will be January 9 – 14, 2012, leaving from Ft. Lauderdale, FL and traveling to Labadee, Haiti and Falmouth, Jamaica before turning homeward. Once again, the MSC Poesia will be home to Jam Cruise 10. Cabins go on sale to the public Tuesday, May 24, 2011 at noon EST. Anyone who pre-booked will be able to book according to their assigned booking time beginning on May 11, 2011.
