On board, musical host Justin Hayward’s performances will include songs from his solo archives along with deep cuts from five decades of material from The Moody Blues. Attendees can expect some familiar faces from Hayward’s Moodies past to join him on stage, along with a variety of classic rock legends, including members of six bands in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

In addition, the cruise will be co-hosted by journalists and fan favorites, Sal Cirrincione and Jon Kirkman along with official broadcaster Eddie Trunk (SiriusXM’s Trunk Nation), who will be hosting shows daily featuring cruise commentary and artist interviews. 

Beyond the electrifying full concerts by some of classic rock’s biggest names, held in the theater of the ship, in intimate bars and lounges and—most popular—under the sun or the stars on the custom-built pool deck stage, this full-ship charter will let you get up-close-and-personal with a series of artist photo experiences. You can also dust off your best moves at the Mellow Yellow Dance Party, rock your vintage rock duds on theme-nights, paint with rock stars, dine with some of your favorite bands and more!

All staterooms were updated with a refreshed look (featuring cool blue hues, reminiscent of the calming ocean with silver and turquoise accents), new furniture, new carpeting, new headboards, new televisions, as well as the addition of USB outlets to charge handheld devices.

Norwegian Pearl’s famed pool deck with Concert Stage, where guests congregate to bask in the sun while enjoying live performances and artist interviews, now features fresh flooring, refurbished whirlpools, and a clean new contemporary look. All restaurants and bars also received a makeover, mirroring the look of the newest vessels from Norwegian Cruise Line.
