If you are wavering on going, or if you have any questions about it, email me- firstname.lastname@example.org. Or, if you think you are going to book a cabin for the first time and want to use me as a referral, please do so!
Its impossible to see all the music on the boat, so even if you are into 50% of the bands on the cruise you will have an amazing time. There is magic on the boat and I have met some of the best people on the planet because of Jam Cruise. Its hard to put into words or on a lineup. If you like to party late, wear costumes, and are a music junkie, you MUST make it on Jam Cruise!
