General Information

Capital Jazz Productions — producers of the world-famous Capital Jazz Fest — has launched its newest event: The Soul Cruise! A more intimate and exclusive version of our flagship cruise (The SuperCruise), this new event will combine your love for soul music with your desire to learn about the life and culture of Cuba.

While at sea, you'll enjoy live performances and activities featuring some of your favorite soul music only Capital Jazz can do! While in Cuba, you’ll participate in a cultural exchange program that gives you the opportunity to interact with the Cuban people, one on one.

Pioneered by Fathom — a newly-created brand of Carnival Corporation — "impact travel" is a whole new category of travel that provides the opportunity to build community with like-minded travelers, become immersed in another culture, and work alongside its people to create enduring social impact.

So join us as we make history on this first-ever soul music cruise from the U.S. to Cuba!
