Welcome to the Jazz Cruise 2017 edition. The Jazz Cruise became the first full ship charter dedicated to “straight ahead” jazz.

During that span of time, the cruise has become one of the most important events in the jazz world, uniting jazz lovers and artists from all over the world for a week at sea celebrating the music, people and history of this beloved genre.



Now is the time to book a cabin on The Jazz Cruise 2017. The program is presented by Entertainment Cruise Productions, the world’s leader in jazz cruises.

Having produced around 60 full ship charters, mostly featuring jazz, throughout the world.

The Jazz Cruise was created for jazz lovers by jazz lovers. Each day is filled with set music performances, jam sessions, special music events and up-close-and-personal interviews.

All in the luxurious setting of a first class cruise ship sailing the blue waters of the Caribbean in January, far away from the cold, sleet and snow.

The music venues are intimate, professionally set up for the best sound, seating and sight lines that we can produce.

Perhaps the most fascinating difference between a customary jazz performance and those on the cruise is the interactive nature of the experience and the ability of our guests to talk and converse with the musicians.

Around 2000 guests have full access to the 100+ musicians which allows for greater learning, appreciation and excitement.



The talent lineup for the Jazz Cruise 2017 has already been announced, like always filled with many big names …

Jimmy Cobb Trio – Al Jarreau – Freddy Cole Trio – Eddie Daniels – Lewis Nash Trio – Houston Person – Paquito D’Rivera Quartet – Eliane Elias – Take 6 – Cyrille Aimée – Niki Haris – Clint Holmes – René Marie – SuperBand – Randy Brecker – Miki Stern – Bill Evans – Tom Kennedy – Dennis Chambers – Clayton Brothers Quintet – John Pizzarelli – Marcus Miller – Jeff Hamilton Trio – Benny Green Trio – Grégoire Maret Trio

… and so on.

The Jazz Cruise also creates performances and formats unlike other concerts or festivals which result in truly unique performances and pairings.

And, at any time during the cruise, you can take a break from the music and enjoy the food, excursions, amenities and comfort of a Holland America Line Signature cruise ship.

Now you know why this cruise sells out year after year after year and why guests continue to sail for many years.
