The Blues Cruise is a Dream Vacation for Lovers of Legendary Rhythm and Blues Music

Grab your bikini and your guitar and get ready for the Blues Cruise! Blues cruises are the easy way to see more legendary rhythm and blues musicians in one week than you've seen in a lifetime while enjoying amazing food, fun and sun on the ocean! Avoid the hassle of traffic jams and parking nightmares that come with any concert worth buying a ticker for in exchange for dancing under the stars while the bands play on the deck below.

There are more than a few reasons that these cruises have SOLD out every year of the past eight beyond the ease of getting to see the finest in blues artists. For one thing the schedule of the cruises seems to hit music lovers just right. There are blues cruises in October and in January. Who doesn't need a little rest and relaxation after dealing with family during the Christmas holidays! Love you, Mom but really...I would rather be cruising than suffering from post-holiday stress disorder or worse, cabin fever.

The Blues Cruise scheduled in October sails to the Pacific while the one in January is sure to be the Caribbean vacation of a lifetime. Talk about perfect timing!

As perfect as all that sounds, you won't be stuck on the ship. There are many exotic ports included that are geared toward music loving travelers as well as the amenities of a five star full ship charter.

Enjoy meeting legendary rhythm and blues musicians in Artist Spotlights on the Blues Cruise where artists showcase their expertise in interactive workshops. Ask your favorites for their autograph when you meet them IN PERSON at the autograph signings.

Learn to play guitar better by jamming with your fellow passengers or with the professionals in one of the two selective lounges. You never know who you’ll meet or play while you're cruisin'.

And music is not the only thing that's cooking on the Blues Cruise! Many artists have participated in culinary demonstrations in the ship's state-of-the-art Culinary Arts Center.

PLUS, there is a Legendary Mardi Gras Parade at sea and Theme Nights to look forward to!

When your cruise vacation is done, consider experiencing the blues culture in an authentic setting. There are many young men and women that have picked up the traditional style of playing but many of the true masters have long since passed. There are still a few to be found in the remaining juke joints so don't make the mistake of waiting to plan your trip.
