The fully chartered Rock Legends Cruise features a lineup of celebrated rock and folk musicians performing live concerts at sea. This is a floating music fest that cruises for a cause; proceeds benefit the Native American Heritage Association (NAHA), a nonprofit dedicated to helping Native American reservations in South Dakota. A portion of the cabin cost, as well as funds from artist memorabilia and other merch sold onboard, is donated to NAHA.

Who Would Like It

This is a legends cruise that's focused on established rockers, so you won't see too many up-and-coming artists on the lineup. Music-loving boomers and Gen X cruisers will feel at home among a fan base that had plenty of experience headbanging at rock venues in the '80s and '90s.
