Jon Bon Jovi cruises are now a thing thanks to Norwegian Cruise Lines. They’ll be hosting not one, but two JBJ cruises in 2019!
I had an interesting experience with Mr. Jovi once in New Orleans. I was with some friends at Patty’s O’Brien’s (home of The Hurricane!) and one of my cohorts thought they saw him walk in. Eventually, I worked up the guts to approach his table and halfway there realized it was a bad idea. But I figured, it’s my life! It’s now or never!
I didn’t really stick the landing and he stonewalled me – not saying a word, but just shaking his head no. I don’t really blame him. I’m sure he doesn’t get any peace when he’s out in public.
So if you’re itching for an intimate concert experience with Jon Bon Jovi, then let Norwegian Cruise Lines do the heavy lifting…and don’t be like me!
You can mark your calendars now. The first sailing will be from April 12 to 16, 2019, from Miami to the Bahamas. And the second will be August 26 to 30, 2019, from Barcelona to Palma, Majorca.
Guests will be treated to a full show on the pool deck and Jon Bon Jovi will be joined on stage by the Kings of Suburbia. There will also be a second acoustic story-teller set where passengers will have a chance to ask JBJ all the juicy questions.
Other supporting acts will be announced at a later date, plus there will be panel discussions with people who have known JBJ over the years. There will also be a collection of historic JBJ memorabilia on display, and you’ll be able to dine at a pop-up JBJ Soul Kitchen.
Best of all, all of the proceeds from the JBJ Soul Kitchen will benefit the community kitchen’s Jon runs with his wife in New Jersey!
Every fan will walk away with an autographed commemorative poster. But the first 400 passengers to book a stateroom will have a photo opportunity with JBJ himself!
Alright, so who’s coming with me?
