Yes Announce 2018 Cruise to the Edge Dates and Lineup
Cruise to the Edge, the annual oceanic event hosted by prog vets Yes, has been booked for 2018.
Promising "some of the world’s greatest prog-rock musical artists," next year's Cruise calls for a five-night voyage setting sail out of Tampa on Feb. 3 and heading for a pair of new ports: Belize City, Belize and Costa Mayo, Mexico. Ticket holders are invited to attend a complimentary party in Tampa the night before the ship leaves port.
Aside from Yes, the 2018 Cruise to the Edge lineup includes scheduled appearances from Marillion, Steve Hackett, Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy and Jethro Tull veteran Marin Barre, along with an array of performers that includes Mike Portnoy and Derek Sherinian, Saga, Gong, Glass Hammer, Adrian Belew Power Trio and more.
Once on board, cruisers can expect a variety of opportunities to interact with the artists, including "photo experiences" and Q&A sessions. The itinerary will also make room for "special theme nights" and the Late Night Live program, which gives cruisers a chance to watch or perform with headliners and select Cruise to the Edge acts.
Tickets are set to go on sale to the public May 3, with cabin prices starting at $1,249 per person in a double-occupancy cabin. The voyage will take place on Royal Caribbean's Brilliance of the Seas, which "combines acres of glass enclosing a nine-story central atrium, elevators facing the sea, and floor-to-ceiling windows throughout" and offers multiple opportunities to exercise, relax, or seek out onboard pampering as well as "some of the best food and service afloat."
