You Still Have a Chance to Get Tickets for the Jon Bon Jovi Cruise. Here’s How Much They Cost.
It’s now or never if you want to party in the Caribbean with New Jersey rocker Jon Bon Jovi. The 57-year-old singer is inviting fans to join him on the upcoming “Runaway to Paradise” cruise. But you’ll have to act fast if you want to join the trip, which departs from Miami on April 12.
Cruise to the Bahamas with the “Livin’ on a Prayer” singer
The four-day cruise on the Norweigan Jade departs April 12 from Miami. The trip includes two days at sea and one port of call at Nassau, Bahamas.
Cruise organizers promise a “fully immersive JBJ experience.” Bon Jovi will perform twice, including a Q&A acoustic set where he’ll answer questions from fans, as well as a
Bon Jovi won’t be the only performer on board either. Collective Soul, Tonic, Beth Thornton, and other musicians will also perform.
There will be wine tastings with Bon Jovi’s son Jesse Bongiovi, who will talk about his Hampton Water rosé, panels and presentations offering a behind-the-scenes look at life on the road with the band, and a screening of Bon Jovi Live at MSG. You can show off your own version of “Wanted Dead or Alive” or “It’s My Life” during karaoke, wow fellow travelers with your music knowledge at rock ‘n’ roll trivia, and even renew your wedding vows.
But don’t expect to run into Jon Bon Jovi in the buffet line. While he “will be very much front and center during your Runway to Paradise experience,” he won’t be spending the night on the ship. He’ll be around to perform and sign autographs, but “will travel back and forth to the nearest port over the course of the cruise,” according to organizers.
Packages start at $739
The “Runaway to Paradise” cruise is almost completely sold out. However, a few spots are still available – and taking this trip of a lifetime doesn’t cost as much as you might think.
If you’re willing to share a room with four of your closest friends, you’ll pay $739 to $746 per person for an interior cabin. A three-person interior cabin costs a little more than $900 per person, and two-person cabins are about $1,300. Solo travelers will pay about $2,400. You’ll also pay an additional $235 per person in taxes and fees.
For that price, you get the cruise, admission to all performances, meals in most of the ship’s restaurants, and access to all the ship’s amenities. But it doesn’t include alcohol, soda or bottled water, spa treatments, and service charges.
There’s also a Mediterranean cruise
If you can’t drop everything and head to Miami in a couple of weeks, you’re in luck. A second cruise is on the schedule, though it will be a bit harder to get to for most U.S.-based fans.
A Mediterranean “Runaway to Paradise” cruise departs from Barcelona, Spain on August 26 on the Norwegian Pearl. The four-day cruise includes a port of call in Palma, Majorca, and most of the same experiences you’ll get on the Caribbean cruise, including two performances from Jon Bon Jovi. Johnny Rzeznik of the Goo Goo Dolls, Grace Potter, and Beth Thornton are part of the current lineup of other performers.
If you want the “Gold” package, which includes a photo op with Jon Bon Jovi himself, you’ll pay between $1,474 per person (for an interior cabin with four people) and $5,695 (for a mini suite for one person). Prices for the “Silver” package, which doesn’t include the photo op range from $950 to $3,841 per person.
