Jam Cruise 12 sails aboard the brand-new, ultramodern MSC Divina January 4-9, 2014, leaving from PortMiami and stopping in two ports along the journey: in beautiful Falmouth, Jamaica and at The Bahamas’ remote private island Half Moon Cay.
The always unique and epic Jam Cruise adventure unveils some brand new add-on experiences for its 12th sail, including the Yacht Club and the Full Moon Resort Music Masters Camp at Sea. For the Yacht Club, patrons seeking a truly luxurious at-sea experience stay in exclusive top-floor luxury suites and have access to 24-hour butler concierge service, complimentary select wines and spirits, private pools and lounges, and so much more. For all of the details, visit www.jamcruise.com.
Also new in 2014, Jam Cruise partners with Full Moon Resort to offer the first ever Music Masters Camp at Sea. This extraordinary program, available as an add-on to your Jam Cruise booking, features workshops, master classes and jam sessions with six world-class musicians and a variety of special guests. 2014 host artists include Victor Wooten, Butch Trucks, Luther Dickinson, Cody Dickinson, Col. Bruce Hampton, and Kofi Burbridge. The one-of-a-kind adventure offers an incredibly interactive experience going even a step further in bridging the gap between artist and audience. Participants will play, study, learn and jam with these world-class performing artists. Space is limited. Visit www.jamcruise.com for information and bookings.
MSC Divina’s advanced technology includes a slew of environmental upgrades - from devices that enforce CO2 emissions reduction & limit energy usage in cabins, to advanced water treatment systems set to the highest legal and ecological standards, to a freshwater production system using 40% less power. These technology features, coupled with the Jam Cruise Greening Program (including carbon offsetting, compostable cups, complete recycling and more) will make Jam Cruise 12 the cleanest music cruise in the world!

About Jam Cruise:
For over decade, Jam Cruise has been delivering a musical experience like no other. Whether it's listening to a late-night pool deck performance while sitting in a hot tub, hanging with 100 of your closest friends on a private tropical beach, delivering pallets of donated shoes to smiling children in need, or chatting with one of your musical heroes while eating dinner - Jam Cruise is full of moments that music fans simply cannot get anywhere else. It's what has kept fans coming back again and again for over ten years.
