Get To Know Your 2024 Lineup

The Jazz Cruise is the first and only full-ship Cruise charter dedicated to “straight-ahead” jazz. After more than two decades of producing the best jazz-only festival in the world, The Jazz Cruise is hailed by both the musicians and guests as Jazz Heaven.

For those of us who have experienced this 7-day, 7-night presentation of over 200 hours of jazz magic, we simply call it…The Jazz Cruise!
