Plus, with this many amazing artists on one ship, you never know where you'll stumble upon an epic jam sesh... 


What started as an outlet for artists to collaborate in an open and relaxed atmosphere has turned into a staple of the Jam Cruise experience. This truly unique aspect of Jam Cruise has become a favorite for fans and musicians alike. After the Pool Deck and Theater stages close for the night, head to the Jam Room for some late night music exploration. Each night features a different host who leads the musical direction and invites various musician friends up to the stage, often going until sunrise!

Piano Sets offer fans the special opportunity to see some of their favorite artists in an intimate setting as they perform on the ship's grand piano. Artists often dig deep into their catalog to bust out rarely played tunes of their own as well as exciting and unexpected cover choices. These may be billed as "solo sets," but it's not uncommon for some special guests to join in as well. Centrally located in the Atrium, this up-close-and-personal venue creates a cozy vibe that unites the Jam Cruise community onboard.

Before the Jam Room even existed, a Jazz Jam was held on Jam Cruise 2. Memories of these magical moments came together to create the Jazz Lounge, which officially began on Jam Cruise 13. Now a Jam Cruise nightly tradition, the Jazz Lounge is a place for artists to push the boundaries of jazz and jam. Check out the Jazz Lounge, as we transform a room onboard into a hotspot venue with an old school speakeasy vibe.
