March 27-April 1, 2020 - Cruise to the Edge
The annual prog rock festival at sea featuring Yes is almost a year away yet, but this cruise is one of the most popular music cruises of them all and will sell out well in advance of departure date, when the Pearl sails from Miami to Harvest Caye, Belize and Roatan, Honduras. Yes will be joined by like-minded bands Marillion, Anthema, Flying Colors, Saga, the Flower Kings, Protocol, Le Orme, Marbin, Moon Safari and the legendary Gong. This is only the first round of announced talent; many more bands will be named as the cruise date nears. Keep up with Cruise to the Edge news here.
