The sails out of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., on Holland America Line’s Westerdam Jan. 16 and returns Jan. 23.  Along with performances throughout the week, the cruise includes an inspirational gospel show, autograph sessions, live interviews, cocktail parties, songwriting workshops and other activities that you’ll be telling your friends about in the years to come.

Stops along the way include Key West, Jamaica and Grand Cayman.   Wouldn’t you rather be visiting those exotic locales than dealing with winter doldrums?

But we’ve only brushed the top of the lineup.  The 2016 Country Music Cruise will also feature The Bellamy Brothers, Shenandoah feat. Marty Raybon, T. Graham Brown, Jamie O’Neal, Riders In The Sky, and Wade Hayes.  Expect more artists to be announced.

“We are thrilled that we sold out the 2015 cruise and are just as excited to announce the fantastic 2016 lineup of stars,” said Mike Jason, StarVista Live/Time Life Senior VP, Live Entertainment.  “This cruise has developed such a wonderful community of country music fans and we are proud to offer an amazing blend of fan favorite events, non-stop music by an unparalleled group of stars and many new artist-interactive events.  Quite simply, there is no other vacation like this in the world.”
