With stages around every corner, fans will enjoy intimate performances, collaborations, spontaneous jams, activities and Q&A sessions with the artists, all while cruising from Miami on the beautiful Norwegian Sky to Great Stirrup Cay, Norwegian's private island in the Bahamas reserved just for Mountain Song at Sea guests.

 

"We have been big fans of the Mountain Song Festival and it is a privilege to be able to bring it to life in this unique way at sea" said Andy Levine, Founder and CEO of Sixthman.
