I love cruising and I love music....in 2003 I discovered I could combine both of my passions and immerse myself once a year for 7 straight days and nights of both along with 2000-3000 like minded fervor fans
Have you ever been on a full charter jazz/music cruise and if yes which one(s)? Which was your favorite musician that you were able to interact with?
The past 4 years I have enjoyed cruising on the Capital Jazz SuperCruise which features a motley offering of jazz styles along with gospel, R&B, funk, old school 60's
These cruises sell out more then a year in advance at above rack rates and appears to be one of the last bastions that support live jazz performances and artists

Well it wasn't "full charter," but I did a memorable one in 1995 on Royal Caribbean. Among the now-deceased musicians on that cruise were Oscar Peterson, Joe Williams, Nat Adderley, Bob Rosengarden, and Milt Hinton. Seven days of bliss.

I do not live near a coast and getting to and from cruise departures is a real pain via the airlines, or I'd try to do it more often. I did two other cruises after that, including one in Europe, but none could really compare to my first cruise, that jazz cruise.

You were probably on the Norway and I think my Mom and my Aunt were on it....they still talk about it to this day

No, I was on Royal Caribbean's Majesty of the Seas. The cruise was organized by HOSS productions, Hank and Sherry. As James says, for any posters who have never experienced jazz cruising, I highly recommend it.
