Changes are coming for the third annual voyage of the Love and Harmony Cruise which is set for April 13-18 next year.

“Love and Harmony Cruise is now approaching our third year, and we always look to improve each year and bring forth new attractions for our cruisers, and this year is no exception. This year we will have a full play on board with the great Oliver Samuels and crew. We will also have a beach concert in Ocho Rios and a beach party in Grand Cayman. Giving the cruisers, aka “harmonizers”, more activities and options. Our objective is for everyone to have fun and look forward to sharing good time with friends and family, and new friends who become family,” noted organiser Steven “DJ Jabba” Beckford.

Another change this year is the addition of American popular R&B vocal group The Manhattans, known for hits such as Kiss and Say Goodbye and Shining Star. This is the first year the Love and Harmony team has added another genre outside of reggae or soca. Also on the line-up are reggae veterans Barrington Levy and CoCoa Tea. To round out the first announcement of artistes is Romain Virgo, veteran deejays Tiger, Admiral Bailey and Johnny P.

Beres Hammond, who has sailed the Love and Harmony Cruise from the first year and has become a staple, returns to captain the ship.

“Each year we continue to grow and it wouldn't be possible without the cruisers who book their cabins every year. This year we return to Celebrity Cruise ship, yet the vessel is the Infinity. Celebrity Infinity is a millennium-class cruise ship owned and operated by Celebrity Cruises. You will enjoy and amazing array of flavours and a wide selection to suit every mood,” said Beckford.
