Take A Celebrity Country Cruise Next January With Chris Young

Have you always wanted to take a cruise, but you were just looking for that little something extra to make you actually sit down and book a date? Well, this might push you over the top and get you to finally pack your swimsuit and head for the high seas. Country Cruising is offering a star-studded event in January, 2017, featuring a huge lineup of country stars, as well as Nashville cast members Charles Eston and Clare Bowen.

And by country stars, were talking about Chris Young, LOCASH, Kelsea Ballerini, Montgomery Gentry, Diamond Rio, and many more, including: Phil Vassar, Dallas Smith, Halfway to Hazard, Ray Scott, Viper Creek Band, James Wesley, Clark Hill, Lucy Angel, Olivia Lane, Maggie Baugh, The Cains, Tate Steven, Lucas Hoge, and Wesley Spangler. How's that for a mouthful?

And did we mention Chris Young? That alone should have you signing up, but there are plenty of other good reasons to book this before it sells out.

The five-day cruise runs from January 14 to January 19, and like other ordinary, run-of-the-mill cruises, includes your accommodations, all meals and plenty of opportunities to relax on deck during the day. But at night, you'll also get entertainment all around the ship as well as the featured performance in the Main Theater nightly, with opportunities to get up close and personal with all the musical guests. That includes autograph sessions and artist photo opportunities.

As if that weren't enough, the cruise also features line dancing sessions and a songwriter workshop, for all those aspiring Nashville stars.

After a day at sea, you'll arrive in Cozumel, Mexico, for another day of adventure south of the border, before heading back to Tampa over the course of two more days of fun in the sun at sea. In Cozumel, some of your day trip options include snorkeling, ATVs, a dolphin swim, or Mayan ruins. In Key West, enjoy parasailing, paddle boarding, a "Ghosts and Gravestones" tour, or a pub crawl.

It's not just the amenities and the guests that make these cruises special, but the accommodations themselves. You'll travel in style on The Brilliance of the Seas ship, known for its panoramic vistas and wide open spaces. The centerpiece of the ship is its nine-story central atrium, and the ship features floor to ceiling windows throughout. Even the elevators face the sea so you'll never feel cramped or be deprived of a dazzling view.

When you aren't rubbing shoulders with big country celebrities, there's plenty more to do, such as booking some time at their Vitality Spa. They offer a whole lot more than massage, facials, and body treatments. Try acupuncture, aromatherapy, chakra mud treatments, and exotic steam vapors. While a little relaxation may make you look and feel younger in itself, you can take that a step further by getting FDA-approved treatments such as Botox, Dysport, Perlane, and Restylane to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. Throw in hair services, a nail salon, and even teeth whitening and you could return from your trip a whole new person.

Whether you crave Japanese, Mexican, pizza, steaks, or Italian cuisine, you can even get room service 24/7 for a late night snack after hitting the lounges and casinos. For hard-core foodies, you can opt into the Chef's Table experience for a small additional fee, where up to 14 guests get to savor a five-course, gourmet menu every evening. They even pair the wine for you.

A variety of accommodations are available to suit your lifestyle and budget, with interior rooms starting at just $1,299. You could also book a room with an ocean or balcony view, and with so much time before your cruise sets sail, you can take advantage of great payment plans.
