The third European journey of Bonamassa’s world-famous floating blues-rock party at sea, ‘Keeping the Blues Alive At Sea: Mediterranean III,’ has been announced by Bonamassa and Sixthman, the industry leader in festivals and music cruises for more than a decade.
The opulent Norwegian Jade will set sail from Athens, Greece on August 17, 2023, for a cruise to Dubrovnik, Croatia and Santorini, Greece dubbed “Keeping the Blues Alive at Sea Mediterranean III.” Today, September 16 at 2 p.m., the general public can buy them.
Guests can reserve a room with no initial investment.
Bonamassa will perform two separate sets over the course of the five-night event, which will also showcase hundreds of exciting live performances and once-in-a-lifetime collaborations from a magnificent lineup of hand-picked special guests.

In addition to the nonstop music, visitors may take part in a variety of one-of-a-kind activities and special programs created specifically for the most serious fans of the blues. Guests will get the chance to connect with Bonamassa and the other musicians on board, as well as partake in wine tastings and exclusive raffles.
Dubrovnik, Croatia, a historic city with cobblestone pathways leading to world-class restaurants serving delectable cuisine, and Santorini, Greece, with its characteristic whitewashed architecture, high cliffs, and spectacular sea vistas, will be two of the ship’s port stops. You can book shore excursions up until four to six weeks before your cruise departs.
With bars on (nearly) every deck, delicious dining options, a pool deck with numerous hot tubs, a casino, a spa, a fitness center, a sports court, and more, the Norwegian Jade will make ‘Keeping the Blues Alive At Sea: Mediterranean III’ the most incredible cruise holiday yet.
The non-profit organization ‘Keeping The Blues Alive,’ founded by Bonamassa in 2011, seeks to instill a lifelong love of music in children and teachers by providing them with the means to pursue their musical goals through grants and scholarships.
Corporate sponsors like Ernie Ball Strings, Guitar Center, and J&R Adventures, along with individual contributions, have made it possible for KTBA to provide weekly gifts to music schools and merit-based scholarships across the United States, benefiting over 70,000 students in all 50 states.
The Fueling Musicians Program was established by KTBA in 2020 as an emergency relief initiative for traveling musicians who had fallen victim to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Over 300 under-the-rails musicians have been helped directly by the Fueling Musicians Program, which has given them urgent cash infusions of $1,500 to put toward their bills.
To further assist musicians in getting up and going, KTBA intends to make the Fueling Musicians Program an ongoing element of the organization. Visit TheActiveNews.Com for the latest information and details.
