Welcome To Jamrock Reggae Cruise Returns With A Legendary Line-Up
Reggae fans are in luck. This year will mark the 7th installment of the Welcome To Jamrock Reggae Cruise, and we promise you, it will be huge.
The Welcome To Jamrock Reggae Cruise will return for its musical excursion across the Caribbean Sea and this year, the line-up and pre-contained excitement has gotten reggae fans worldwide eager for the December trip.
The dates will be December 7-12, 2022, sailing on Royal Caribbean’s Freedom of the Seas. Famously titled after Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley’s record hit ‘Welcome To Jamrock’, the cruise will take things to higher heights in 2022, making impressive progress from its already successful inception in 2014.
The six-day, five-night cruise will depart from Miami, Florida’s cruise port with stops in Montego Bay and Ocho Rios, Jamaica before returning.
After a two-year hiatus, Jamaican music from lovers rock to roots and beyond will be represented at this year’s cruise.
As the sixth cruise wrapped up in 2019, there were unforgettable performances by Stephen “Ragga” Marley, Taurus Riley, Koffee, Popcaan, Buju Banton, Skip Marley and many more. Given the situation with the global pandemic, the following two years halted the experience.
A Legendary Line-Up For The Welcome To Jamrock Reggae Cruise
This year the legendary Shabba Ranks, Damian “Jr Gong” Marley and Stephen “Ragga” Marley will hit the stage for what promises to be an explosive return. An additional bonus for those attending is the chance to see living reggae legend Burning Spear perform too.
“For one of my heroes to come and experience something that I was a part of building is a great feeling. This man has influenced me and here he is now performing on a stage that I’ve helped to build. I feel that with all the artists, really, but Shabba Ranks kinda special to me.” shared Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley in VIBE.
The cruise not only promises incredible live performances night and day, but also “opportunities to get up close and personal with musical guests. Late night dance parties with DJs and lots of other surprises!”
