Norwegian Cruise Line is hosting a music festival cruise to Spain starring rocker Jon Bon Jovi this August.
Jon Bon Jovi super-fans can "Runaway to Paradise" this summer for a Mediterranean music festival on the water. The Norwegian Jade sets sail on August 26, 2019, from Barcelona for a four-day cruise ending in Palma, Majorca. Grammy Award-winner Jon Bon Jovi -- known for hits like “Living on a Prayer” and “You Give Love a Bad Name” -- will be performing live, participating in interview panels, and interacting with fans. Cruisers can also view Bon Jovi memorabilia, participate in special experiences, and attend live performances by other rock artists.
Norwegian Cruise Lines has partnered with Runaway Tours, a fan experience travel company, to offer fans of Jon Bon Jovi the ultimate cruise experience. In addition to a live pool deck concert with Jon Bon Jovi and the Kings of Suburbia, fans can sip wines from Jon and Jesse Bongiovi’s vineyard, shop at the Hart and Dagger pop-up shop, and dine at Bon Jovi’s JBJ Soul Kitchen. The cruise also features a lineup of world-renowned artists, including Grace Potter, Johnny Rzeznik of the Goo Goo Dolls, Betsie Gold, Slippery When Wet, Shut Up & Dance, and more. Jon Bon Jovi is excited to bring this kind of fan experience to the ocean.
“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. “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!”
The Runaway to Paradise cruise sails from Barcelona to Majorca from August 26 to 30. Double occupancy staterooms start at $2,221 per person, plus taxes and fees. All fans will receive an autographed event lithograph, and the first 400 fans to book will get an opportunity to take a photo with Jon Bon Jovi. Fans can view the full itinerary and get updates on the band lineup at runawaytoparadise.com.
