JazzFest at Sea

If you're a fan of Traditional Jazz, Classic Jazz, Chicago Jazz, Swing, in fact just about any style which emerged during the first half of the 20th century, plan to attend JazzFest at Sea - one of the premier jazz cruises of the year. We will be departing from Port Canaveral, Florida for an amazing jazz cruise to the Bahamas and Western Caribbean on the MSC Divina for 7-nights. Not only will you have your choice of amazing evening performances on our jazz cruise, but you are also invited to the afternoon sessions as well. All presented in a private jazz club atmosphere limited to 125 guests!


In addition to our internationally acclaimed artists, we will once again be offering more than thirty hours of opportunity for our guests who are amateur musicians to jam in your own JazzFest Jammer sessions led by John Skillman and Mike Evans.  Plus, if you would appreciate some instruction and critique during the jam sessions feel free to ask! But remember, only those who book with Cruise & Vacation Depot or an approved agency will be allowed to participate!


With pricing starting at only $999 per person including taxes and fees, this makes the perfect vacation getaway for all jazz lovers. Contact us today at 1-800-654-8090.

After all this time, the light may be at the end of the tunnel. Cruises seem to be at a point where they may actually begin happening. With the high vaccination rates among our cruisers and the health and safety protocols in place, cruising will be in full swing in no time. That being said, we hope that you will join us this year. Our $999 guaranteed pricing goes away soon. With all the fantastic musicians and vocalists we have, we wouldn't want you to miss out.

We would like to tell you about a land tour we are sponsoring in early 2022. Those of you that are music buffs but not strictly early jazz, this is for you. Our America's Music Cities Tour covers country music in Nashville, the Blues and of course Elvis's Graceland in Memphis, Morgan Freeman's Blues Club in Clarksdale and most importantly, traditional jazz in New Orleans with some of our past and present jazz cruise all-stars. We hope that you will consider joining us! Click here for more info. Discounted pricing if you deposit by December 30, 2020.

September 2020

What a crazy year this has been so far! First and foremost, we hope that you and your families have remained safe from viruses, wildfires, hurricanes or whatever else may have been thrown your way. We long for the day that the world returns to some type of normalcy in whatever form that may take.

That being said, we are starting to get inquiries and bookings for our 2021 jazz cruise. We feel that cruising will be starting up in the near future here in the United States with many new protocols in place to make it a safer and healthier environment for everyone. Though there is no way of knowing what protocols may be in place a year from now, we are fairly confident that they will not be as strict as when cruising initially restarts.

However, there is a possibility that those restrictions may limit our lounge capacity to lower than normal. Because of this and the fact that jazz cruises and festivals in general seem in short supply next year creating greater demand, we hope that instead of waiting to deposit your cabin, you will reserve your cabin now so that you don't miss out on the fun.

"It’s not just the variety of musicians that makes JazzFest at Sea so popular. It’s having so many musicians thrown together in a relaxed, less-structured environment that offers moments of totally unrehearsed magic."

- Frank Farbenbloom
