It's a performance experience your students will never forget!

Looking for something different, something that’s unique and exciting all rolled into one?

Adventure Cruise Travel has the perfect way to showcase your group's talent!



As a middle or high school director, your band, choir, orchestra, or dance group will feel secure knowing that Adventure Cruise Travel will plan each and every event with meticulous attention to every detail.




Performing groups have this unique opportunity to enhance their cruise experience in two different ways. Your group can enjoy a fun, non-adjudicated performance onboard the ship or at one of the many exciting Ports of Call. You may also want to participate in a festival program and have an adjudicated performance and clinic onboard the ship. It is the most highly respected music festival on the seas!!




For performing groups, we require one chaperone for every 10 students, and you will receive one complimentary cruise after every 20 people that pay, so every 21st person will go totally free (based on interior quad price). We do NOT require an adult in each cabin. The pricing is based on a performance, but we can make your cruise into a festival (adjudication) for an additional fee with a minimum of 50 passengers.


Your cruise adventure offers superb dining, excellent service, fantastic entertainment and lots of shipboard activities. The fun never ends! The time has never been better to book a magical cruise today!


We can offer you departure ports all around the country, including Port Canaveral, Miami, Tampa, New Orleans, Galveston and Los Angeles (to name a few).


Your cruise will take you to exotic Ports of Call including: Nassau, Freeport, Half Moon Cay, Key West, Cozumel, Playa Del Carmen, Grand Caymen, Ocho Rios, and many more.


To bring more excitement to your experience, add one of our top destinations like Universal Studios, or Walt Disney World before or following your cruise!












Together, we can make this an incredible experience
for you and your group
