Welcome-to-Jamrock-Cruise

After five days on the high seas, the inaugural ‘Welcome to JamRock Cruise’ returned to port this weekend.  The historic cruise departed Miami on October 20 and made stops in Montego Bay and Ocho Rios, Jamaica before returning to Miami, Florida.

The host of the cruise, Damian ‘Junior Gong’ Marley put together a masterful list of performers and DJs. Dubbed as the “ultimate Reggae music adventure” the artist line up included Stephen “Ragga” Marley, Julian “JuJu” Marley, Jo Mersa, Shaggy, Jah Cure, Busy Signal, Cham, Bounty Killer, Shaggy, Tarrus Riley, Morgan Heritage – just to name a few!

The historic reggae cruise also brought onto the high seas soundman of magnanimous proportions including David Rodigan, Mighty Crown and Rory from Stone Love.

 

RCS had a few moles on the ship so here’s a few interesting things I learned.

  • There was absolutely no pork or shell fish on the cruise!!!!  #Rastafari
  • Many (including Marleys – allegedly!) did not leave the ship in Jamaica for fear of being infected with the Chikungunya virus (Chikungunya is a viral disease transmitted by the bite of infected mosquitoes.)
  • Stephen Marley’s performance was rained out 🙁
  • Busy Signal performed for almost an hour!

By all accounts, the JamRock reggae cruise made a big splash and everyone is looking forward to next year’s cruise.  Hope you feel like you were there!!!
