Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley returns with the 4th Annual Welcome to Jamrock Reggae Cruise, set for November 13-18, 2017. Cruisers will once again sail aboard Royal Caribbean’s “Independence of The Seas” on November 13, 2017, making stops in Montego Bay and Ocho Rios Jamaica before returning on November 18, 2017.
I had the pleasure of being aboard on the WTJRC 2016 and I must say it was one of the best vacations ever. This the WTJRC gives you the biggest bang for your money with world-class entertainment, great parties with top-rated sound systems and cruisers from all over the world (I met ladies who flew 24 hours from New Zealand to be onboard!). The highlight for me is arriving in Jamaica and having artists that I’m unable to see in the USA performing live and direct!
This year’s lineup continues the WTJRC expectations for a stellar line up with artists including Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, Stephen “Ragga” Marley, Sizzla, Jah Cure, Luciano, The Big Ship Crew (ft. Freddie McGregor, Stephen “Di Genius” Mcgregor and Chino McGregor), Bounty Killer, Tarrus Riley, Cocoa Tea, Busy Signal, Popcaan, Inner Circle, Richie Spice, Tanto Metro & Devonte, Pressure, Spice, Raging Fyah and Iba Mahr. Also joining are Sound Systems including Stone Love, Renaissance, King Jammy’s, Mighty Crown, Tony Matterhorn, and Kingston 12 Hi Fi. More artists, DJs and Sound Systems to be announced!
Jamrock has infused the cruise industry with a one-of-a-kind Reggae experience, and has become one of the most exciting and talked about reggae gatherings in the world. For music lovers, it is notably the only place to see some of the top reggae artists who are not able to travel and perform in the United States . The 2016 cruise had fans from over 40 nations all over the globe converging for their love of reggae music and culture.
