Festival Details

2,000 Cruisers. 5 Stages of Music. Dozens of Shows by Some of Your Favorite Artists. Infinite New Memories. One Open Ocean.

Sail Across the Sun: Music & Wine Festival hosted by Train is back for a third year! We’ll be sailing from Miami, Florida to Ocho Rios, Jamaica aboard Norwegian Pearl February 11–15, 2016. If you’re wondering just how to get through those cold winter months, picture sailing under the warm Caribbean sun with your closest friends and family while treating your senses at every turn. What could be sweeter than that?

Your hosts, Train, are putting their own personal touch on this unique experience, selecting groundbreaking artists as the perfect complement to lush wine tastings. This year, guests can look forward to three pool deck shows from Train, one of which is a special acoustic set.  For our third sailing, we’re including a mix of beloved alumni in addition to new voices for guests to enjoy. We’re happy to welcome back Michael Franti from SATS 2014 and Andy Grammer from SATS 2015, and we’re excited to introduce Phillip Phillips to the Sail Across the Sun family.  In addition to great music, you can look forward to participating in an array of onboard activities such as creative drinking games, contests and festive theme nights right alongside the very artists you’ve come to see.

We’ll sail to Ocho Rios, Jamaica where golden beaches, swaying palm trees, and fragrant air await you.  Create your own adventure and hike through lush jungles, snorkel in crystal blue water, or beach bum it and laze away in the sand all day. Of course delicious local cuisine and shopping are there for those that enjoy adventure of a different sort.

With 13 different bars & lounges, several dining options, a spa, pool, hot tubs, fitness center, bowling alley, rock climbing wall, and casino, Norwegian Pearl is a destination of her own making it the perfect hub for a phenomenal vacation. Whether you’re looking for a wild girls trip, quality family time, or a romantic getaway, we’re ready to Sail Across the Sun with you this February. Join us and prepare yourself for the time of your life!
