The love, peace and Soul Train continues from the tracks of your mind to the sea of your soul reaching new fans as the first-ever Soul Train Cruise launches on February 17, 2013 from Ft. Lauderdale, FL, sailing to beautiful Grand Turk, San Juan, St. Thomas and Half Moon Cay before returning on February 24.
An incredible array of the biggest and most iconic acts in R&B history will kick off the Soul Train Cruise’s maiden voyage, including Patti LaBelle, The O’Jays, Kool & the Gang, Jeffrey Osborne, War, The Spinners, Harold Melvin’s Blue Notes, George Duke and many more aboard Holland America’s MS Westerdam, an internationally recognized luxury cruise ship with more than two-thirds of the cabins featuring verandas.
Back-to-back concerts by legendary artists are just part of the non-stop events scheduled aboard the Soul Train Cruise. Guests will also be invited to wildly fun Soul By The Sea beach parties, a Solid Gold themed ball with the iconic Soul Train Line, and DJ’s spinning classic R&B hits on deck all transporting them back in time to the early days (and outrageous fashions) of the original TV series.
Cruisers will also participate in onboard games such as the beloved Scramble Board and other retro-fueled contests, vie for Soul Train DVD, t-shirt and CD giveaways all while enjoying world class meals, sun and fun, and much, much more.
