For the past decade, Jam Cruise has been delivering a musical experience like no other. Whether it's listening to a late night pool deck performance while sitting in a hot tub, hanging with 100 of your closest friends on a private tropical beach, delivering pallets of donated shoes to smiling children in need, or chatting with one of your musical heroes while your eating dinner - Jam Cruise is full of moments when you can't help but stop and ask yourself "is this really happening?" But yes, it is happening, and it's what has kept fans coming back again and again for over ten years.Picked as a favorite by The Travel Channel in their US Music Festival Guide, Jam Cruise offers more than just a music festival. “By taking the music to the seas, Jam Cruise makes the music festival a full-blown vacation.
