Yet again, Jam Cruise brings the heat for another magical trip to the Bahamas.

If living on a privately rented cruise ship for nearly a week while you sail around the tropics and listen to your favorite bands sounds like a good time, then we suggest marking your calendar for January 7th – 12th, 2013.

Jam Cruise is back for its 11th year and things area really looking great. Leaving port from Fort Lauderdale and stopping at the Caicos Islands and the Bahamas for some added adventure, this festival is unlike any other.

Jam Cruise is the ultimate backstage pass where the musicians are everywhere you go and everyone gets treated like a rock star.
