Editor's note: Cruise to the Edge 2020 has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Organizers are working with Norwegian to reschedule the cruise for fall 2020 or spring 2021, and existing reservations will be transferred to the new sailing.

Featuring a minimum of 35 bands with a full schedule of daily performances taking place everywhere from the ship's theater to the poolside stage, this cruise gives prog rock fans a chance to mix and mingle with stars of the subgenre.

General Info

Cruise to the Edge travels round trip from Miami to Harvest Caye and Roatan on March 27, 2020. The five-night prog rock cruise will take place on Norwegian Cruise Line's Norwegian Pearl.
