Classic Rock Music Cruises

Classic Rock Music Cruises

Music Cruises have become a popular vacation option for classic rock fans with a wide variety of themes and artists to enjoy on the high seas every year. They provide a chance to see your favorite acts up close and rub shoulders with and even meet them while shipboard and interact and party with your fellow fans.

Most all provide affordable all-in packages (except for alcoholic beverages, of course) with a variety of onboard recreational activities, casinos, duty-free shopping and more in addition to concerts, intimate shows, jams and other musical events.

They typically sell-out fast!

    Any cruises leaving outta IOWA?…
    Sign me up for YES’s “Cruise To The Edge”!!
    Probably the KISS CRUISE, as well. A solo ACE FREHLEY gig, along with sets by KISS themselves? What’s not to love? Hopefully VINNIE VINCENT will join in on the shenanigans!!
    …and “The Monsters of Rock” Cruise with KING’S X, PAT TRAVERS and QUEENSRYCHE will be a (belated) birthday present to myself!!
    Break out the LIFE PRESERVERS and let’s go!!…

    Best cruise by far IMHO is jam cruise. I grew up on classic rock and blues but for real deal heavy duty improv, jams galore, and overall fun..nothing beats jam cruise. Though I’d be happy going on Cruise to the edge and the southern rock cruise as well. . My 1st Choice would be jam cruise. It has the most variety, lots of Nola legends, and music going on 24/7. It’s basically like jazzfest at sea!!

    Never been on a cruise and i am a disabled vet wanting to. The Flower Power cruise would be perfect as we are in our 60s. We also live in Florida retired now and would like a cruise sometime out of the Port Carnival area.
