VJC

Welcome to the First Annual Valentine’s Singles Jazz Cruise! We have 3 days jam-packed with so many exciting things that you don’t find on your typical jazz cruises. The obvious is, first and foremost, we are catering to the “Singles” Jazz population! Jazz, by nature, can be soulful, funky, and also very romantic! For most singles attending Jazz events, they don’t mind the Soulful, Funky vibes, but aren’t very excited when it comes to the romantic sounds. Is it because they don’t enjoy romantic music? No, it’s because they are not there with a romantic partner to enjoy the music with. That being said, Stiletto Travel Biz is bringing you, what is likely to be, The Most Talked About Jazz Event in 2015!

The master of Romantic Jazz music himself, Kim Waters, is our Headliner! Anyone that has been following Kim throughout his music career knows that his music is all about Love! For those of you that aren’t familiar with Kim, you are in for a special treat.

The weekend getaway is kicked off on Thursday night with the “Ice Breaking” Speed Dating Event. Here, the singles will spend the first night mixing, mingling and getting to know each other through a series of 8 minute dates. There’s no better way to shake off the awkwardness of striking up a conversation with someone that caught your eye or waiting for someone to notice you. We have taken care of the right from the start.

Now that everyone has met, hopefully there will be some “couples” that want to go on a longer second date. Well, Friday is the perfect day to do that when we reach our destination on beautiful Ensenada, Mexico. It’s the perfect opportunity to get away for lunch, shopping, or just strolling and getting to know each other better.

Friday night we bring the mystery and intrigue with our Murder Mystery Masquerade Ball/Cocktail Party. This is another great opportunity for our guests to get to know one another better by pairing up or forming groups to attempt to solve the mystery.

Saturday is a full day at sea, and what’s a full day at sea without a pool party? So get your hottest swim gear in order and join us at the pool!

Saturday night is our main event, the Valentine’s Day Concert by Kim Waters and his band! So come dressed to impress! This will be the main event of the entire cruise. And what a night he has planned for us. Opening for Kim will be a newcomer on the scene, Sherrell Renee! But don’t be fooled by the fact that she is a newcomer, Sherrell’s sultry vocals will captivate you and leave you wondering where she’s been all along! Saturday night after the concert will be our Valentine’s Day Dance. This will be the final opportunity to impress the one that caught your eye and possibly your heart as well before we disembark on Sunday Morning!

Cruise from Long Beach, California to Ensenada, Mexico from February 12-15, 2015

SJC2015

 

While sailing into placid blue-green Caribbean waters last January, The Smooth Jazz Cruise encountered a tidal wave of demand for cabins for the 2015 sailing. On just the second day of the 2014 venture, next year’s cruise sailing January 11-18, 2015 showcasing more than twenty of the brightest stars in contemporary jazz and R&B sold out. To make sure that no one would be left stranded ashore, cruise producer Entertainment Cruise Productions, working with cruise line Holland America and the enthusiastic cooperation of the artists and musicians, swiftly put together a solution to rescue the lengthy waiting list of enthusiasts from all over the world eager to be part of the luxurious musical vacation adventure. Six days later, The Smooth Jazz Cruise 15.2 sailing March 1-8, 2015 was conceived.

Spending a week at sea performing, meeting and hanging out with fans aboard Holland America’s m/s Eurodam while visiting exotic Caribbean ports during the traditional January time slot fits nicely into the musicians’ schedules because most don’t tour or release new albums immediately after the holiday season, but rounding up everyone six weeks later in March, including such Grammy winners, legends and chart-toppers as Natalie Cole, David Sanborn, Marcus Miller, Boney James, Brian Culbertson, Candy Dulfer, Rick Braun, Jonathan Butler, Joe Sample, Peter White and many others, could have been difficult.

“We called all the artists’ agents and managers and they were happy to hear about the unprecedented demand so everyone was ready and willing to sign up immediately,” said Entertainment Cruise Productions’ Executive Director Michael Lazaroff of the cruise that will depart Fort Lauderdale and visit Nassau, St. Thomas, St. Croix and the private island Half Moon Cay. “The Smooth Jazz Cruise is simply the best entertainment in the world of smooth jazz. No other festival or event can boast this level and depth of talent, fun and excitement. As it’s affectionately known, it is ‘The Greatest Party at Sea.’”

Capturing the unique spirit of the perennially sold-out cruise that many guests embark upon year after year has been a bit of a challenge as well. Offering live music plus DJ Biz Markie in six different venues large and intimate on top of informative panels, theme parties and autograph sessions with the artists, it is more than a music festival and more than backstage experiences with fan favorites. It is more than a vacation in the Caribbean with a dazzling array of amenities and delectable dining. It is more than a week of pampering during which everyone is treated first class by the Holland America staff. For the past twelve years on 17 full-ship charters, The Smooth Jazz Cruise has delivered unforgettable music and lifestyle experiences. Something special happens when passionate guests devote the entire week to being immersed in the music. A new video clip that provides a glimpse into the magic that occurs on every sailing is as close as one can get without leaving shore. It can be viewed at http://www.thesmoothjazzcruise.com/Videos/PreCruise2015.
