In February, Moody Blues singer/guitarist Justin Hayward served as the musical host of the inaugural On the Blue Cruise, and now the 72-year-old Rock & Roll Hall of Famer has signed on to do the honors for the nautical music festival’s second annual edition.
The 2020 On the Blue Cruise will set sail from Miami on April 1 and will stop at St. Maarten, St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands and Great Stirrup Cay in the Bahamas before returning to port on April 8.
Among the many other confirmed performers are Art Garfunkel, Dave Mason, Zombies frontman Colin Blunstone, Ronnie Spector and The Ronettes, Alan Parsons, Al Stewart, Orleans, Firefall, Player, The Babys, and Focus.
Other attractions, activities and events during the cruise include pools, Jacuzzis, a casino, a fitness center, a disco/night club and much more.
Fans who sailed on the 2019 On the Blue Cruise will be able to take part in a pre-sale for the 2020 cruise that begins Tuesday, April 9 at 12 p.m. ET. A second pre-sale, for those who have attended other On the Blue Cruises, which include Yes‘ Cruise to the Edge, will begin on April 10 at 2 p.m. ET.
Prices begin at $1,599 per person for double occupancy lodging. Visit OntheBlueCruise.com for all the details.
