Photo Highlights: The 2nd Annual Welcome To Jamrock Reggae Cruise

Written by Steve James

Under normal circumstances a cruise line is one of the most organized activities that one could participate in. Add to that approximately 2,300 die hard reggae fans from across fifty countries, over thirty reggae artistes on board, sound systems including Saxon Sound (UK), Mighty Crown (Japan), King Jammys (Ja), Bass Odyssey (Ja), Metro Media (Ja), Stone Love (Ja), radio personalities from Jamaica, the USA and Europe and you get the perfect blend of reggae vibes on the Norwegian Pearl.  The Welcome to Jamrock Reggae Cruise set sail from Miami on November 30 with port calls in Montego Bay, Ocho Rios and Falmouth and allowed patrons to have a real taste of Jamaica while pulling into each port.  From start to finish the cruise was filled with nonstop activities.  One would feel that if you blinked an eye or slept too long you would miss out on some of the excitement. Performers included Shinehead, Supercat, The Marleys, Busy Signal, Bounti Killa, and Third World, Jah Cure, Tarrus Riley, Capleton, Maxi Priest, Tanya Stephens, Morgan Heritage and more.

The organizers have already confirmed the Jamrock Reggae Cruise dates for 2016 (November 14-19) and seven acts  which includes Steel Pulse, Half Pint, Junior Reid, Romain Virgo, J Boogs,  Assassin, Toots , Movado and Collie Bud for next year’s cruise and that instead of having two cruises they will do one with a much larger cruise ship.  Don’t miss 2016, book now, and if you snooze you lose, Welcome to the Jamrock Reggae Cruise.
