(2:04 p.m. EST) -- Norwegian Cruise Line and oceangoing music festival promoter Sixthman have announced the 2020 Melissa Etheridge Cruise IV, featuring Grammy and Academy Award-winning singer-songwriter Melissa Etheridge.
The cruise, which will take place aboard Norwegian Pearl from October 20-26, 2020, will feature a lineup of performers including Tegan and Sara, Tig Notaro, Shawn Colvin, Lucy Spraggan, Sonia Leigh and others.
"I can't believe we've been cruising for four years now," said Etheridge in a statement. "Every year it gets better and better ... the music, the roundtables, the food, the excursions and especially the fans! I'm so excited about the incredible lineup of musicians and speakers we have this year. I can't wait to set sail!"
The voyage, which can be booked only on themelissaetheridgecruise.com, departs from Miami and includes port stops in Key West, Ocho Rios and Great Stirrup Cay, Norwegian's private island in the Bahamas.
Passengers on the cruise will be able to take part in a wide array of activities onboard, including two exclusive performances by Etheridge, photo opportunities, collaboration sets and concerts from supporting artists.
As the name of the cruise implies, it's far from the first cruise outing for Etheridge. The 2019 voyage sailed from Tampa to Harvest Caye, Costa Maya and Grand Cayman and coincided with the release of her latest album, "The Medicine Show."
Tickets for the 2020 Melissa Etheridge Cruise are now on sale.
