Seabourn Brings Jazz Greats Sandoval, Pizzarelli Aboard Two Fall 2017 Sailings

Seabourn, the world’s finest ultra-luxury cruise line, is bringing two legendary jazz musicians aboard two select itineraries this fall. Guests will be able to listen to the cool sounds of Arturo Sandoval and John Pizzarelli as they share some of their most popular works.

Sandoval is one of the most dynamic and vivacious live performers of our time, and has been seen by millions at the Oscars, the Grammy Awards, and the Billboard Awards. He has been awarded 10 Grammy Awards, and nominated 19 times. He has also received six Billboard Awards and an Emmy Award.

Pizzarelli has been hailed by the Boston Globe for “reinvigorating the Great American Songbook and re-popularizing jazz.” The Seattle Times saluted him as “a rare entertainer of the old school.”

“Seabourn promises the finest cruises with luxurious onboard amenities, carefully crafted itineraries, and experiences created for our guests to remember,” said Richard Meadows, president of Seabourn. “Having these two renowned jazz musicians on board, playing in front of such an intimate crowd, is sure to make for two very memorable cruises.”
