The “Rock Legends Cruise V” will celebrate their fifth anniversary voyage with the largest rock festival ever at sea, January 19-23, 2017.   The festival’s confirmed lineup includes 20+ legendary performers, among them Grammy®-winners and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducted artists, including REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo,  Creedence Clearwater Revisited, Thin Lizzy, Don Felder, The Marshall Tucker Band, John Mayall, Todd Rundgren, Leon Russell, and many more.
This year’s voyage, aboard the beautiful Royal Caribbean Independence of the Seas, is a true once-in-a-lifetime experience for music lovers who’ll have the opportunity to enjoy 60 + concerts from some of the biggest names in music, from a beautiful and intimate setting, as they sail from Fort Lauderdale, Florida to Cozumel, Mexico. Since it’s maiden voyage in 2011, the Rock Legends Cruise has hosted some of the biggest names in classic rock including ZZ Top, Alice Cooper, Peter Frampton, Gregg Allman, Doobie Brothers and Paul Rodgers.  It’s also become a red-letter event for nearly 4,000 passionate music fans, many who now make it an annual event, creating a sell-out months in advance.

“Together, we’ve seen that music can truly change lives,” said Pam Myers, President of the Native American Heritage Association. “It’s with great pride that we’ve built not only the largest, but also the only charity-based rock cruise on the seas.  It’s a journey that’s turned strangers into friends and it’s also 24/7 fun that doubles as a life-changing fundraiser for America’s forgotten minority, the Sioux living in poverty on the Reservations in South Dakota and Wyoming. You do not want to miss this boat.”
