Wayman Tisdale Returns As Host of the 2009 Smooth Jazz Cruise

It's getting close to that time of year again. If you've not done so before, spoil yourself a bit and indulge in the experience of sailing with the "big guy," bassist and smooth jazz personality Wayman Tisdale, as he hosts Jazz Cruises, LLC’s Smooth Jazz Cruise from January 18 January 25, 2009. The talent lineup boasts-- in addition to the funky licks of Wayman--Gerald Albright, Euge Groove, Kirk Whalum, Brian Simpson, Peter White, Willie and Lobo, Everette Harp, John Stoddart, Peabo Bryson, Jonathan Butler, Jeff Golub, Jeff Lorber, comedian Jonathan Slocum, and special guests, Chaka Khan and Rufus. Coupled with a magnificent ports-of-call lineup (the absolutely gorgeous Puerto Rican city of San Juan, Santa Barbara de Samana and Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic, and Holland America’s private island, Half Moon Cay), this 6th annual extravaganza promises to be as spectacular as its five predecessors.

For the first-time cruiser, Jazz Cruises, LLC is the major heavyweight in the arena of jazz cruises, offering you the perfect venue for every type of experience expected from such a stylish genre. For the Smooth Jazz Cruise, (only one of many sponsored by Jazz Cruises, LLC, by the way), the choice of the spacious Holland America as the full-charter vessel (that’s right, just for the jazzers) to smoothly transport you along the sun-kissed Atlantic, the abundance of scrumptious food all around the clock, the ambience, and the interaction with fellow jazzers all place this head and shoulders above the conventional cruise experience. The challenge: See if you can honestly set foot on land after this adventure-at-sea and not seriously consider rebooking for the following year!

For those familiar with Jazz Cruises, LLC and its commitment to the ultimate in your jazz experience and enjoyment, we need say no more---except perhaps: When did you book your cabin?

Come sail for a week with some of the finest acts in the business, have a chat on the lido deck strolling along with one of them, take full advantage of the ship’s amenities, and, of course, catch the amazing performances held in the coziest of plush lounges. This is how to spend a memorable vacation! Want more info? Visit, or call 1-877-330-5299 (1-877-330-JAZZ).
