On Crystal Cruises’ November 25th South Pacific voyage, live jazz brings an energetic beat from Los Angeles to Hawaii and French Polynesia. On board, a host of prolific guest musicians will treat sea-goers to daily live music, ranging from ragtime to swing.
“While cruise insiders know that Crystal always sparkles on days at sea, this lineup of great jazz music, fascinating speakers, and breathtaking destinations is particularly stellar,” says Bret Bullock, vice president of entertainment.
Also on board, Louis Zamperini, Olympic champion and subject of the bestseller “Unbroken”, American musical theater author Herb Keyser, Clint Van Zandt, former Chief Hostage Negotiator and “Silence of the Lambs”-style profiler for the FBI and General Nick Halley will also be aboard to rivet audiences as Crystal Visions Enrichment guest speakers. Also just added to the rich lineup is Discovery Channel & National Geographic “Storm Chaser,” Tim Samaras.
Clarinetist Pieter Meijers is set to lead a jazz ensemble of percussionist Eddie Metz; trumpeter, pianist and banjo player Randy Morris, keyboardist and vocalist Tom Hook, bassist and vocalist Nicki Parrott and vocalist Rebecca Kilgore, thanks to jazz aficionados, Jazzdagen Tours.
Crystal Symphony’s lounges, nightclubs and theaters, recently redesigned in a dazzling “extreme makeover, ” will also be bustling with full stage productions like new show Diva, solo headliners like comedian Dale Gonyea, lively piano tunes in the Avenue Saloon, dance hits in Luxe, “Magic Castle at Sea” magic shows and more.
Departing Los Angeles, the 13-day luxury cruise overnights in Honolulu, Hawaii and visits Mooréa, Society Islands en route to another overnight in Papeete, Tahiti. Until August 31, all-inclusive “Book Now” fares for the “Grand Pacific Interlude” start at $3,370 per person, with additional savings for Penthouse and Verandah accommodations and for combining this cruise with the following Papeete to Auckland voyage.
