GRAMMY-nominated artists Mindi Abair and Joan Osborne are the latest performers added to the lineup for the GRAMMY Festival at Sea: Women Who Rock, which will set sail Nov. 4–8, 2014, in conjunction with Norwegian Cruise Line, the official cruise line of The Recording Academy and the GRAMMY Awards. They join previously announced talent Shawn Colvin, Estelle, Skylar Grey, Emmylou Harris, Heart, and Indigo Girls, with more artists to be announced.
Sailing from Miami aboard the beautiful Norwegian Pearl, this inaugural GRAMMY Festival at Sea will offer guests the opportunity to celebrate GRAMMY-winning and/or -nominated women who rock, while sailing to Grand Bahama Island and Nassau, Bahamas.
Additionally, a GRAMMY Chapter Stage has been added to enhance the experience of this four-day music festival at sea. Featuring panel discussions and workshops with participating artists and other music professionals, the GRAMMY Chapter Stage will also spotlight emerging and established talent from each of The Recording Academy's 12 Chapter cities around the country. Selected by the Chapters to represent their respective regions, artists on the GRAMMY Chapter Stage will reflect a wealth of musically diverse styles, and all participating artists tie in to the "women who rock" theme.
With no shortage of music and live performances on board, guests should prepare to be floored by the towering vocals of these remarkably talented artists and can also look forward to other fun activities hosted by these chart-topping ladies, as well as one-of-a-kind opportunities to interact with the artists while sailing.
No cruise is complete without stops at sun-soaked ports, and guests on this GRAMMY Festival at Sea will visit Grand Bahama Island and Nassau in the Bahamas. Known as one of the most family friendly islands in The Bahamas, Grand Bahama Island is a nature enthusiast's dream, with several easily accessible nature-based activities. Kayaking, airboat eco-adventures, dolphin experiences, and bike tours are just a handful of the adventures waiting for guests in this Bahamian paradise.
The island of Nassau, Bahamas, is another port that cruisers will have the opportunity to explore during this four-day music festival. Guests will be guided by palm-lined streets to sandy beaches, duty-free shopping, delicious local fare, and more. This Bahamian capital is rich with history and culture and home to several museums, conservation centers, and art galleries.
In addition to all of the activities and entertainment offered aboard the GRAMMY Festival at Sea, guests will also be able to take advantage of Norwegian Pearl's 13 bars and lounges, 19 dining experiences, outdoor pool, hot tubs, expansive spa and fitness center, and much more. Guests also are invited to visit the outdoor rock climbing wall, shoot hoops on the sports court, bowl a few frames in the ship's bowling alley, or try their luck in the Pearl Club Casino. Norwegian Pearl features a wide range of stateroom categories to fit all lifestyles and budgets, from the perfectly appointed inside staterooms to luxurious penthouse suites in the ship's exclusive complex, The Haven.
