Have You Heard About Jon Bon Jovi’s 2019 Cruises Through Norwegian Cruise Lines?

Last week, Norwegian Cruise Line — an innovator in cruise travel — announced it will host Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame inductee and Grammy® Award-winner Jon Bon Jovi’s Runaway To Paradise cruise vacations in partnership with travel partners Runaway Tours and Sixthman.

The Norwegian Jade will be hosting

The Runaway To Paradise immersive fan experience will feature Jon Bon Jovi joining cruisers on board the ship at each destination port. Guests will be treated to a full rock show on the pool deck starring Jon Bon Jovi and the 11-piece Kings Of Suburbia band, a second acoustic storyteller set where cruisers can ask Jon all of their burning questions, multiple shows from support artists (to be announced), and panels with key figures from Bon Jovi’s storied history, all the while sipping Jon and Jesse Bongiovi’s new wine, Hampton Water Rosé, and enjoying a multitude of amenities offered on Norwegian Cruise Line Jewel class ships.

The action on Runaway To Paradise goes far beyond the music. Guests will get up close with historic memorabilia in the Jon Bon Jovi Gallery, shop for new looks in the Hart N Dagger pop-up shop, and even enjoy a meal while giving back to those in need at the JBJ Soul Kitchen that will be brought to life on-board. All guests will take home an autographed event lithograph, and fans who book in the first 400 staterooms on each cruise will get an opportunity to take a picture with Jon Bon Jovi.

“Ever since we started Runaway Tours, it’s given me such joy to entertain the fans and tell them the stories of where my songs came from. What I’ve realized after all these years is that they’ve found not only my stories, but their own,” said Jon Bon Jovi in a statement. “Hundreds of people have gotten together every time we take off for a destination, and long-lasting friendships are born. We want to continue that tradition in Runaway’s fully-immersive vacation trips. Get ready, we’ll see you out there!”

As part of Norwegian’s famed Jewel class, the ships, which can accommodate upwards of 2,400 guests, feature some of the industry’s top amenities, including 14 bars and lounges, 15 unique dining experiences, the first bowling alleys at sea and more. Both Norwegian Jade and Pearl were refurbished in 2017 as part of the Norwegian Edge program, with Norwegian Jade now featuring new venues and concepts, such as The Pit Stop, Sugarcane Mojito Bar, and the Bliss Ultra Lounge, and both ships featuring modernized accommodations and public spaces.

“We are beyond excited to host Runaway To Paradise aboard Norwegian Jade and Pearl” said Andy Stuart, President & CEO of Norwegian Cruise Line. “Hosting an international rock and roll sensation like Jon Bon Jovi is a testament of our commitment to offer world-class entertainment for all who sail with us. With the recent refurbishments, both of the ships are ideal venues to host this musical experience and will certainly provide our guests with the vacation of a lifetime.”
