The Soul Train Cruise unveils a star-studded lineup for its 2015 voyage, which travels through the Caribbean from February 22, 2015 through March 1, 2015 with more than 30 R&B superstars performing nightly concerts and interacting with cruise guests during over 25 special events. The fourth sailing of the hippest trip at sea will star KC and the Sunshine Band, Maze featuring Frankie Beverly, Gladys Knight, James Ingram, The Spinners, Russell Thompkins, Jr. & The New Stylistics, Harold Melvin’s Blue Notes, Regina Belle, Marilyn McCoo & Billy Davis, Jr., original 5th Dimension stars, Valerie Simpson of Ashford and Simpson, Will Hart of the original Delfonics and comedian Alonzo Bodden. Also joining the cruise are Hitzville: Las Vegas Style Motown Revue, Chicago’s legendary R&B record store merchant “Uncle George” Daniels and cruise host Tony Cornelius. Held aboard the luxurious Holland America Eurodam, the Soul Train Cruise departs from Fort Lauderdale, FL for Turks and Caicos, San Juan (Puerto Rico), St. Thomas, the Bahamas and the private island of Half Moon Cay in the Bahamas.
"Many times during the '70s we appeared on Soul Train with Don Cornelius," said Harry Wayne 'KC' Casey. "I only wish he could still be here to share this magic moment we are going to have on the Soul Train Cruise. I'm looking forward to bringing our music alive once again, as we did so many times on the TV show."
"This cruise has become the ultimate luxury vacation for fans of great R&B music," says Michael Mitchell, StarVista/Time Life Vice President and Executive Producer of the Soul Train Cruise. “If you grew up watching Soul Train, this cruise will bring back all the memories-the great artists, fantastic songs, the dancers, the fashions and most of all the fun!" Chris Hearing, President of StarVista/Time Life, adds, "Our guests return time and time again for the music and the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hang out with the biggest names in R&B history."
The Soul Train Cruise not only offers more than 30 concerts throughout the seven-day voyage, but also invites travelers to meet the stars during over 25 special events, ranging from cooking demonstrations to dance lessons, Q&A panel discussions to tribute shows, a gospel hour, musician seminars, wine tasting and personal meet and greet sessions. The cruise will also film interviews with artists in front of a live audience, airing on television on a future date. And Soul Train Cruise partner SIRIUSXM will be aboard once again, recording exclusive radio shows with the artists and giving fans a backstage view into the excitement and the music that fill the ship while CENTRIC television also returns as title sponsor, hosting a number of the cruise’s most popular onboard activities.
Soul Train has been an integral part of popular culture since its debut in 1970 and continues be a vital force in entertainment with its all-star Soul Train Awards shows.
