Guests aboard the upcoming Signature Jazz Cruise on Seabourn will have the opportunity to spend two days in Barcelona as guests of Mayor Xavier Trias, touring the city’s wineries, restaurants and historic sites before attending the Barcelona Jazz Festival to view a performance by Grammy® Award winning vocalist Diana Krall.
Krall will also perform exclusively for Signature guests while onboard the cruise as it journeys through the Mediterranean. The Signature Jazz Cruise sails from September 30, 2014 through October 10, 2014, stopping in majestic European destinations along the way, including Monte Carlo, Sanary-sur-Mer, St. Tropez, Portovenere, Livorno (Florence/Pisa), Rome, San Remo, Marseille, Palamos, Palma de Mallorca, and Barcelona.
“We have put together an exceptional cultural and travel experience for our guests,” says Michael Lazaroff, Executive Director of Entertainment Cruise Productions, LLC. “To be in Barcelona with the city’s Mayor, to watch Diana Krall perform just for them right before she appears at the Barcelona Jazz Festival – it’s an unprecedented level of luxury.”
The cruise sets sail on September 30, 2014 from Monte Carlo, Monaco, escorting travelers on elite daily excursions in breathtaking Mediterranean ports of call including Sanary-sur-Mer, St. Tropez, Portovenere, Livorno (Florence/Pisa), Rome, San Remo, Marseille, Palamos and Palma de Mallorca before landing in Barcelona on October 10, 2014. A wide variety of excursions are available to the guests on a daily basis, while fine dining, fine wines and jazz concerts fill the nights. The luxury vacation is available to only 450 passengers, who will travel in the Seabourn Sojourn’s opulent suites, attended to by their white glove service, cuisine and premier amenities.
Ms. Krall will perform throughout the second half of the voyage in a series of intimate concert settings spanning four nights, with an all-star band of internationally recognized jazz artists holding concerts during the first five nights of the journey. Vocalist Karrin Allyson, pianist Shelly Berg, trumpeter Randy Brecker, bassist John Clayton, reed player Anat Cohen, trombonist Wycliffe Gordon and drummer Jeff Hamilton represent the finest in contemporary jazz and will perform as a band each of those nights as well as breaking into different combos for additional afternoon and late night shows. Krall will be featured on opening night of the Barcelona Jazz Festival, which Signature guests are invited to attend.
