Musical Themes

From big band and classical to jazz and blues, music cruises appeal to a broad range of melodic tastes. Guests on a music cruise might enjoy special performances and the opportunity to meet musicians and recording artists onboard, while port stops and shore excursions explore legendary musical cities.

Classical music cruises through central Europe often visit Salzburg, Mozart's birthplace, and Vienna, known as the "City of Music" and home to Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert and Strauss. Jazz lovers might consider a Rhone River cruise that attends the Jazz Festival in Vienne, France, or a Mississippi River cruise visiting the birthplace of jazz, New Orleans. Some cruises offer a glimpse into a decade-long musical era, such as Motown in the ‘60s or the rock n' roll of Elvis and Fats Domino in the ‘50s.

Specials onboard shows and musically themed shore excursions are included in the price of your cruise. When added to accommodations, meals and sightseeing already included in the price, the result is an attractively priced, one-of-a-kind vacation.
