Connecting with the family on a cruise can be a great way to entertain everyone’s individual needs, while offering ample quality time and group attractions. Whether looking to spend some time with the kids in the arcade or heading out on a solo spa treatment, cruises provide a long list of entertainment for every occasion. Add a little music to your next trip and check out Carnival Cruise Line’s concert series.


In collaboration with Universal Music Group and Brands — music and entertainment marketing company – Carnival Cruise Line launches back into its seasonal concert series, Carnival LIVE with a performance by Carly Rae Jepsen. The Canadian pop star, singer, songwriter and actress sets sail aboard Carnival Splendor during the vessel’s February departure. Guests and fans of all ages enjoy a live musical performance on deck at no additional cost.


Jepsen became a pop sensation with her single “Call Me Maybe” in 2012 and has since been featured as Frenchy in FOX Network’s Grease: Live and played the starring role in Cinderella on Broadway.


Families, guests and fans setting sail Feb. 17, along the seven-day voyage to the Mexican Riviera enjoy live music, ocean air and incredible scenery. Check out the performance calendar online for more information and upcoming Carnival LIVE events.

Jepsen isn’t the only star on Carnival LIVE’s list. She joins the ranks of entertainers and performers from country music stars Tim McGraw and Carrie Underwood and comedians Chris Tucker and Jim Gaffigan — all featured as headliners aboard previous Carnival LIVE sailings.


Whether you’re a music fan, or just looking to get away on a sunshine-filled cruise with the family, Carnival boasts a unique lineup of fun and entertainment, fit for all ages.
