“When the very first Soul Train Cruise set sail back in 2013, we wanted to create the ultimate experience for the old school R&B fans,” says Alan Rubens, StarVista LIVE Senior Vice President of Entertainment and Executive Producer of the Soul Train Cruise. “We wanted to make sure our guests would be surrounded by their favorite music, have opportunities to interact with the superstars they love and relive favorite moments from their lives while creating new memories. Every year since then, we’ve set the bar even higher with bigger stars and round-the-clock events that you can’t find anywhere else. It’s incredible to see that there is a huge group of fans out there who love this as much as we do and want more of it every year.”
“The Soul Train Cruise captures the essence of Soul Train’s spirit and is a special place where we get to say hi to and hang out with the greatest fans in the world,” adds Ronald Isley of the GRAMMY Award-winning Isley Brothers. “There’s really nothing else like it on the planet.” “The StarVista LIVE team has done a tremendous job of honoring the Soul Train legacy,” says Tony Cornelius, former Soul Train Executive and current Host of the cruise. “The StarVista LIVE team brings all the things we love so much about Soul Train to life to create a music-filled vacation experience for everyone to enjoy.”
