Can you believe it is already the middle of October! January, and the Bluegrass & Blue Water Cruise will be upon us soon. Have you secured your spot yet?

We wanted to let you know spaces are becoming limited, the closer it gets to the cast off date cabin prices with Carnival Cruise Lines go up. Now is the time to still get the best deal! Head over here to secure your cabin.

Greg and Janet Deering will be doing a special workshop on the history of the banjo and will be happy to answer any and all questions on banjo set-up. You may even get to see them play a few tunes together! This will be a week of music, jamming, and all the relaxation of a cruise in the Bahamas along with it.

Sailing from Charleston, South Carolina on January 6th, 2018 to Freeport and Nassau, Bahamas and returning January 11th.

Hosted by the high energy bluegrass band Nu-Blu and joining them on the high seas for concerts and a host of other fun filled music activities are Carolina Blue, The Hinson Girls, and Carolina Express Bluegrass. More info at Pricing starts at just $600 per person! Includes taxes, port fees and music package. Pricing is based on double occupancy in each cabin.
