Music theme cruises are always a popular option with today’s vacationers. Cruise guests have the opportunity to attend live concerts, late night parties and small jam sessions with their favorite stars while sailing to some of the most beautiful destinations in the world. Last year’s Blake Shelton Cruise was a smash hit with its guests. Now, once again, some of country music’s hottest names are giving their fans the opportunity to get up close and personal while Country Cruising in the Western Caribbean.
Country Cruising will be held January 12-19, 2014 on Norwegian Cruise Line’s Norwegian Pearl. The entertainment lineup for this country music event is superb. Trace Adkins, one of America’s top country music artists with over 20 Billboard country music hit singles to his name, will be returning again this year as one of this country cruise’s key headliners. His songs include such perennial favorites as “You’re Gonna Miss This,” “Ladies Love Country Boys,” “Hot Mama” and “Honky Tonk Badonkadonk.” Last year’s country cruise guests loved the opportunity to meet Trace and hear him perform his chart-topping songs. The winner of this year’s NBC All-Star Celebrity Apprentice, Trace Adkins is always one very popular entertainer.
Montgomery Gentry is another of January’s Country Cruising big stars. With fourteen Top 10 singles, the duo of Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry has sold millions of albums and won many awards. Montgomery Gentry currently has a new album, titled Rebels On The Run. They’ll be performing their latest songs including “Where I Come From,” and “My Town,” plus other smash singles like “Something To Be Proud Of,” “Lucky Man” and “Roll With Me.
Five-time GRAMMY winner Wynonna Judd will also be performing for guests aboard January’s Country Cruising sailing. In addition to being a major platinum selling artist with multiple Number One songs and bestselling albums, Wynonna is also a New York Times bestselling author and popular television performer. Wynonna & The Big Noise will be entertaining audiences with her many hits including “I Will Stand By You,” “Something You Can’t Live Without,” “Grandpa,” and “Why Not Me.”
Neal McCoy, another popular singer on last year’s country cruise, will be returning as a special guest to Country Cruising’s mega-concert at sea. This multi-platinum country artist has produced 11 albums and over 25 charted singles including “They’re Playin’ Our Song,” “The Shake,” “No Doubt About It,” and “Wink.”

Passengers will also enjoy late night dance parties with radio station DJs, Q&A sessions, songwriter workshops, and surprise unplugged performances and jam sessions by the great country music singers on this cruise.
