GRAMMY Award® winning rock band Train and Sixthman, the industry leader in festivals at sea, have partnered once again to host the fourth voyage of the Sail Across the Sun music and wine festival. Pairing a variety of widely appealing musical acts with an equally broad array of wine and onboard activities, this year’s Sail Across the Sun cruise will host more than 2,000 guests as they travel between Tampa, Florida, and Costa Maya, Mexico February 15-19, 2017 aboard the beautiful Norwegian Jade.

Sail Across the Sun vacationers will be treated to dozens of musical performances over four nights, including three headlining performances from their roots-rocking hosts, Train. Two of those sets will be in the band’s full electric glory, while the other will be presented in an intimate, acoustic format.

The diverse musical lineup features folk-inflected pop rocker Matt Nathanson, genre-defying Michael Franti & Spearhead, Brit-pop songbird Natasha Bedingfield and positivity-spreading hip-hop group Arrested Development. They’ll be joined by a wide array of musical acts including Toad the Wet Sprocket frontman Glen Phillips, Yacht Rock Revue, Simplified, Bastard Bearded Irishmen and Headphone Disco. Former Saturday Night Live comedian Jim Breuer and yogi John Jessum are special guests on board, and more musical acts will be revealed in the coming months.

“Sail Across The Sun is all about spending time with friends, new and old,” says Train’s Pat Monahan. “We’re excited to bring some fresh faces aboard to join our party at sea."

More than a vacation, Sail Across the Sun is a journey of thrilling offerings —cruisers will have the opportunity to take part in wine tastings with James Foster, including Train’s own Save Me, San Francisco Wine Co., adding a relaxed glow to special activities, autograph sessions and unpredictable collaborations that seem to take shape at the popping of a cork.

A destination of her own, Norwegian Jade offers guests Norwegian Cruise Line’s signature freedom and flexibility to enjoy 11 onboard bars and lounges, 15 dining experiences, one outdoor pool, hot tubs, and a full menu of spa treatments. Guests can enjoy access to other entertainment on the ship as well, whether it’s a game of soccer or basketball on the sports court, a workout in the fitness center or tempting lady luck with a few hands in the casino, Norwegian Jade has you covered. Audiophiles and vinophiles alike will enjoy a daylong excursion to Costa Maya, Mexico, where stunning beaches and ancient Mayan ruins await adventurous travelers.
