Fort Lauderdale, Florida -Royal Caribbean International – Independence of the Seas

Since 2004, The Smooth Jazz Cruise has been the “gold” standard, not only for jazz cruises, but for all theme cruises. Nearly 50,000 guests have sailed on the 25 sailings and nearly 14,000 of those have sailed 4 or more times.

In 2021, the bar is being raised even higher. Our ship, the Celebrity Infinity, is undergoing an $84 million renovation titled “Revolution” (learn more here), and for the first time we are cruising to the exotic ports of Aruba and Curacao. Factor in our amazing lineup for 2021, and the result is truly a “Smooth Revolution.”

Marcus Miller and Boney James are your hosts for this wall-to-wall music event as you cruise “up close and personal” for 7 days and nights with stars of the jazz world, experiencing the sheer joy and fun on what has become “The Greatest Party at Sea.” Join the Revolution!
