We are excited to announce that MC Extraordinaire Doug E. Fresh will be joining the all-star Soul Train Cruise 2015 lineup.
Doug E. Fresh is dubbed the “World’s Greatest Entertainer,” but over the course of his 30-year career he has established himself as much more, including an artistic icon, a trailblazer, a businessman and an activist. Doug E. forever became part of music history as hip-hop’s originator of the human beatbox.
If you join us on the Soul Train Cruise, you will experience Doug E.’s exciting live show during a poolside performance. Plus, groove each night in Club Soul Train as Doug E. and his handpicked DJ keep the dance floor hopping to hits both old school and new. Plus, Doug E. will also host a special event with our superstar lineup that will allow Guests to get to know everyone just a little bit better.
“‘Soul Train’ meant so much to me as a young artist. To be a part of the Soul Train Cruise as it travels through the Caribbean Sea of my childhood brings my worlds together like never before,” said Doug E., who was born in Barbados.
Doug E. Fresh rocketed to stardom in the mid-1980s with performances in the iconic hip-hop film “Beat Street” and his international smash hit “The Show/La Di Da Di,” recorded with his Get Fresh Crew, which included MC Ricky D (aka Slick Rick). He has remained one of the most recognizable and popular figures in music and pop culture, inspired The Dougie dance craze, was the first rapper to perform at the United Nations for the United Nations Day Concert (in front of representatives from 193 countries), has been invited to perform at the White House and was commissioned by First Lady Michelle Obama to create the forthcoming album for Obama’s “Let’s Move” initiative.
The Soul Train Cruise is an experience like no other, with over 30 LIVE performances and 25 celebrity-hosted interactive events for seven days of Love, Peace and Soul. Where else could you learn how to “Dougie” from the man himself? Dance down the Soul Train Line with the original Soul Train Dancers? Rub elbows with R&B superstars?

We are proud and thrilled to announce that superstar alto saxman Gerald Albright has been added to the lineup of both the sold out Smooth Jazz Cruise 15.1 (January 11th) and The Smooth Jazz Cruise 15.2 (March 1st).
Whether he is playing contemporary or straight-ahead jazz, Gerald stands in a class all by himself. He is known for his swiftness on stage and for his unique round sound, which is percussive yet soulful. He has the ability to surprise the audience with something out of the ordinary. Gerald gives his audience what they come for — a great show! With a recent Grammy nomination under his belt and a new hit recording in the mix, Gerald is hot — and ready to join us again on The Smooth Jazz Cruise.
Gerald will be replacing Joe Sample, who is currently ailing. We know that Joe will be performing in a few months, and he has agreed to join us on The Smooth Jazz Cruise 16.1 and 16.2. There will be more information about those sailings later. In the interim, we wish Joe a speedy recovery.
Though you cannot get on board The Smooth Jazz Cruise 15.1 in January because it is 100% sold out, you still have a chance to get on board The Smooth Jazz Cruise 15.2 in March. But hurry, it's already 85% sold!
Passionate about music and passionate about cruising. Put 'em together and I'm in heaven -- you can catch up with me on a themed cruise and, especially, on an Entertainment Cruise!
