    The cruise, which has earned the title of The Greatest Party at Sea, provides guests with a week away from the issues of the day and transports them to a place of true camaraderie, inclusion and respect. The guests motivate the artists and musicians, who, in turn, up their game to further excite the guests.

    This spiral continues for 7 days and 7 nights, resulting in a totally immersive music and cultural experience that has created life-changing relationships among guests, artists and staff.
