About this Cruise

The Smooth Jazz Cruise ’24.1 & ’24.2, celebrating the program’s 20th Anniversary, have been fully reserved for months. The Waitlist has more than 2,800 smooth jazz fans waiting to see if they will sail in ’24 or must wait for ‘25. The Artists, Musicians and Crew are planning their future schedules. All these facts combine to make the time right to announce The Smooth Jazz Cruise ’25.1 & ’25.2, the first sailings of the 3rd decade of this iconic event!

It has been too long since The Smooth Jazz Cruise stopped at a Private Island. Plans for a day of fun and music in Labadee are already underway. Turks & Caicos is our full day stop and, just as we are doing for Labadee, our team is scouting for the very best activities for this beautiful port. The island is controlled by Carnival Cruises which account for our 10+ year hiatus from porting there.

The '25 Lineup is comprised of several factors. We started with Your Favorite Performers, added the Return of Great Performers, sprinkled in some New Performers and topped it off with our amazing Event Hosts. That alone would have produced an amazing lineup.

But we wanted to do something special, something that we have never done before. The Smooth Jazz Cruise and Jazz Cruises are proud to present The Smooth Jazz Cruise superband - The Summit! Five iconic musicians coming together for the first time and performing exclusively on The Smooth Jazz Cruise '25.1 & '25.2! They will be sailing the entire cruise both weeks so you will have ample opportunity to meet them.
