Lineup and Highlights

On his cruises, DJ Khaled does his best to draw both well-known rappers and hip hop artists -- Cardi B. has a Grammy, after all, and Post Malone has 17 nominations for the 2019 Billboard Music Awards -- as well as up-and-comers. Besides the musicians listed earlier, other artists include Pardison Fontaine, Tay Money, DEJ Loaf, Murda Beatz, Tyla Yaweh and Kent Jones.

Most of the artists will play at least one set onboard. Waka Flocka, as well as Flipp Dinero, will perform a beach concert at Half Moon Cay.

In addition to the concerts, DJ Khaled promises meet and greets with the artists, fashion pop-ups, panels, presentations and more.

Onboard Vibe

Party! The Days of Summer Cruise Fest has a lot of high-octane acts, packed into a very short time period. Expect a diverse group of millennials and gen Zers to make the most of their cruise with equally energetic partying. Note: Passengers have to be 18 to sail and 21 to have a room on their own. Anyone younger than 21 must travel with someone 25 or older.
