“Many times during the ’70s we appeared on Soul Train with Don Cornelius,” said Harry Wayne ‘KC’ Casey. “I only wish he could still be here to share this magic moment we are going to have on the Soul Train Cruise. I’m looking forward to bringing our music alive once again, as we did so many times on the TV show.”
“This cruise has become the ultimate luxury vacation for fans of great R&B music,” says Michael Mitchell, StarVista/Time Life Vice President and Executive Producer of the Soul Train Cruise. “If you grew up watching Soul Train, this cruise will bring back all the memories-the great artists, fantastic songs, the dancers, the fashions and most of all the fun!” Chris Hearing, President of StarVista/Time Life, adds, “Our guests return time and time again for the music and the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hang out with the biggest names in R&B history.”
The Soul Train Cruise not only offers more than 30 concerts throughout the seven-day voyage, but also invites travelers to meet the stars during over 25 special events, ranging from cooking demonstrations to dance lessons, Q&A panel discussions to tribute shows, a gospel hour, musician seminars, wine tasting and personal meet and greet sessions. The cruise will also film interviews with artists in front of a live audience, airing on television on a future date. And Soul Train Cruise partner SIRIUSXM will be aboard once again, recording exclusive radio shows with the artists and giving fans a backstage view into the excitement and the music that fill the ship while CENTRIC television also returns as title sponsor, hosting a number of the cruise’s most popular onboard activities.
