FAIRFAX, Va., Aug. 25, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- StarVista LIVE announces that their 2016 Soul Train Cruise has officially sold out. The 2016 Soul Train Cruise voyage sold out faster than all predecessors, reaching capacity more than five months prior to its Caribbean departure on January 30, 2016. The cruise will include performances by the greatest names in R&B music and features special guest, the iconic Smokey Robinson. The 2016 Sailing also includes The O'Jays, The Whispers and more, along with exclusively curated onboard experiences that bring fans up close and personal with the stars performing on the ship. The Soul Train Cruise is the latest in a string of popular live entertainment travel experiences that StarVista LIVE has launched in the past five years, joining the Malt Shop Memories Cruise, The Country Music Cruise and their newest, the Flower Power Cruise.
"We are thrilled with how quickly StarVista LIVE has become one of the cruise industry's greatest success stories," says Mike Jason, StarVista LIVE Vice President of Live Entertainment. "Three of our franchises (Malt Shop Memories Cruise, The Country Music Cruise and Soul Train Cruise) consistently sell out months in advance and our newest, the 2016 Flower Power Cruise, was just launched this year and is well on its way to being the fourth. Fans have turned out in droves for the star-studded performances and special events and activities we develop just for them that bring them close to the artists throughout the journeys and create new memories that are every bit as vivid and lasting as the ones that brought them on the ship in the first place." Soul Train Cruise Creator and Executive Producer Michael Mitchell adds, "This year, StarVista LIVE came into its own and with it the success of The Soul Train Cruise. The vision for the cruise has been non-wavering, breaking through to firmly establish it as a must-do vacation. With a new ship, The Celebrity Constellation, all new ports of call never before visited on any Soul Train Cruise and a fantastic lineup featuring the iconic Smokey Robinson, The O'Jays, The Whispers, Billy Ocean, and more… the 2016 cruise will be better than ever."
In response to the overwhelming success of the current StarVista LIVE cruise franchises, several new concepts are in development and will be announced in the coming months. Each travel experience will feature the top-of-the-line entertainment and events, luxury and service that StarVista LIVE has become renowned for.
