The lineup for the next Melissa Etheridge cruise is here, and it is smashingly queer.
The nearly week-long party at sea is slated to set sail October 20-26, 2020, hitting the ocean from Miami and making stops in Key West, Florida; Ocho Rios; Jamaica and Great Stirrup Cay; and the Bahamas. It promises “incredible music, endless fun in the sun, and lifelong friendships with fellow Melissa Etheridge fans.”
We will be joining @metheridge on her annual @etheridgecruise next year!! We are so excited to cruise (and entertain) all of you! Mostly we can’t wait to dress like sailors for a week. Sign up for the pre-sale and get info at https://t.co/zAQwnAypTh. pic.twitter.com/tAT9WMipHD

Next year’s party at sea marks the fourth annual installment of Etheridge’s queer-inclusive cruises, produced by Sixthman, the same event company that organized Kesha’s Weird & Wonderful Rainbow Cruise earlier this year.
It’s hardly Etheridge’s first time taking her show on the road. This June, the Grammy-winning singer-songwriter and openly gay music industry pioneer helped close out WorldPride 2019 in New York City, taking the stage in Times Square for the closing ceremony alongside acts like Jake Shears, MNEK, and host Margaret Cho.
So excited my friends @teganandsara @TigNotaro @Shawn_Colvin @lspraggan @sonialeigh and more will be on my fourth #EtheridgeCruise in 2020 ️ Join the pre-sale now for priority booking: https://t.co/4xVIw2jTbp pic.twitter.com/jxXtMYj5nq

Hoping to score a spot on next year’s Melissa Etheridge Cruise? Tickets are pricey (solo travelers can expect to pay upwards of $2,300 USD for a room to themselves, though there are payment plans and an early bird discount available), but interested parties can sign up for the pre-sale on Sixthman’s website.
In the words of Melissa herself, it’s going to be a rocking cruise.
