There are many reasons why music theme cruises are popular with today’s cruise vacationers. These types of events give passengers a great opportunity to hear their favorite stars in concert and vacation with other fans. Guests can attend live concerts and special “meet & greet” sessions while sailing to some of the most popular ports of call.
Full ship charter music theme cruises have allowed fans to get up close to some of their favorite recording artists. Typically, though, the fares for these cruise experiences are very expensive. Music fans have an alternative that offers a tremendous vacation value. As part of Carnival Cruise Lines’ Carnival LIVE Concert Series, music lovers can cruise and experience some of the recording industry’s hottest performers at a small fraction of the cost of a full ship charter fare.

Get Up Close To Your Favorite Artists

Carnival Cruise Lines offers a wide array of artists and performance dates on their cruise ships. Concerts are scheduled on a limited number of sailings on ships visiting Cozumel, Nassau or Catalina Island. Carnival LIVE cruises depart from a number of convenient home ports around the United States, providing guests with convenient access.
Carnival LIVE concerts feature artists such as country music superstars Lady Antebellum, Rascal Flatts, Little Big Town, Trace Adkins, Martina McBride and more. Rock performers include Styx, Journey, Chicago and Foreigner. Solo artists are also popular, with performances by Jennifer Hudson, Olivia Newton John, Smokey Robinson and others. New artists are announced periodically as well.

The artists are incredibly close, unlike in a stadium or arena setting. It makes it much easier for performers to get out in the audience for interaction with their fans or even bring guests up on stage.

This allows guests to have dinner in town or head to a local bar after the show if they wish. Those distinctive kinds of experiences make great vacation memories and add to the unique nature of the cruise.
Concert tickets can be purchased once the cruise has been booked, just like a shore excursion ticket. That’s one of the many reasons to book Carnival LIVE cruises as early as possible. General admission tickets range from $35 to $60 per person depending upon the artist. Compare those prices to stadium seats at a regular performance and the Carnival LIVE value is instantly apparent. VIP packages are available for $125 to $250 depending upon the performers.
The VIP package provides an outstanding opportunity for guests to get up close to their favorite music artists. The package includes a Meet and Greet session plus a photo opportunity with the band before the s
