The Michael McDonald Patti LaBelle Cruise is the gold standard for music events, and Jazz Cruises is dedicated to delivering an amazing experience as we have for the last 20 years. When you board the cruise, we will provide you with a detailed schedule of music and events. We will also deliver to your stateroom a nightly update of schedule changes and news.
We craft an incredible performance itinerary for all our music enthusiasts, one that is filled with numerous concerts, artist-hosted lectures, and fun artist-hosted activities as well. We offer two Main Stage Shows every evening in the main theatre for our guests to enjoy.
Afternoons "At Sea" and every night after the completion of the Main Shows, the programming is set up in a festival style, with numerous shows and activities taking place at the same time, where you are welcome to come and go as you wish. Prior to Embarkation, we will post on the website a complete schedule of events so that you can begin to plan your activities.
Most of our performers will be onboard for the entire cruise. However, there may be some cases where an entertainer may join mid-trip or depart the cruise early due to other commitments.
In the rare case of an artist cancellation, we will replace the artists with new artists, whenever possible. Rest assured that in our long history of hosting these cruises, we have had very few artist cancellations. Our artists love performing on our cruises!
We do not allow the taking of photos or videos of the artists while performing as this violates our contracts with the performers. We please ask that you respect this policy, our artists, and your fellow guests.
If you see an artist who is not performing, you may ask the artist if you can take a photo. However, please keep in mind that these artists are often busy and do have the right to decline.
We occasionally schedule “Jam Sessions” for our guests and artists to play and learn alongside each other.
