OFFICIAL STATEMENT: 2020’s Music Cruises Rescheduled to 2021 and 2022

Greetings from the team at Choose Your Cruise,

We would like to thank you for your patience over the past few months during these difficult and unprecedented times for us in the travel industry and around the world.

In response to continuing travel restrictions due to the impact of COVID-19, it has become necessary to look at other options for Cruisin’ Country, Rock the Boat and Bravo 2020. We have been working hard behind the scenes to make changes which ensure our guests will have the best experience on board, but also at a time and place they are able to travel with their health and safety at a top priority. Due to this, Choose Your Cruise have made the decision to postpone the 2020 music cruises and move them to 2021 and 2022.

We are excited to announce that for 2021, Choose Your Cruise have chartered Ovation of the Seas departing Sydney on 23-30 November 2021 presenting the world’s biggest music cruise! Both Cruisin’ Country & Rock the Boat will operate as two separate festivals running simultaneously on the one ship for 7 spectacular nights for a “Super Cruise”, the very first of its kind!  We are also pleased to advise that many of the headline performers and around the ship bands & musicians from the 2020 cruises have been rebooked for 2021. Full line-up and artist information can be found here:


Bravo 2020

We strive to provide our Bravo passengers with the best cruise experience possible where safety and quality of entertainment on board are at the forefront of our decision making. Taking this into consideration, we have made the difficult decision to postpone Bravo until 2022.

Please note, further information regarding itinerary and line-up will be announced at a later date and booked guests will be contacted directly by their travel agent regarding their current bookings and refunds/transfers shortly. We look forward to welcoming our Bravo family back in 2022 and are working towards having the same artists on board and are currently discussing artist availability. For more information on Bravo 2022 please visit

All currently booked passengers for our 2020 cruises will have the option of a cruise credit towards 2021’s Super Cruise, a further credit up to 2022 if you cannot travel on the new proposed dates (or would like to travel on Bravo 2022), or a full refund.

Guests have until August 30th, 2020 to advise that they wish to receive a refund, or their paid amount is automatically moved to a Future Cruise Credit (FCC). Bookings that choose to transfer will be allocated the same or similar category & stateroom location where possible. Room upgrade costs will be available once all bookings have been reassigned to 2021.

You will have a choice of selecting either ‘Cruisin’ Country Experience’ or ‘Rock the Boat Experience’ onboard for which headliner shows you would like to attend in 2021. Please note, you are not able to see both headlining shows but can see bands of both genres at other public venues around the ship, so you can enjoy twice the entertainment! If you are a booked passenger for 2020, your travel agent will be in contact with you shortly regarding your preferences.

Please find below a link to our comprehensive list of FAQ’s for the 2021 Super Cruise regarding transfers/refunds and both cruise options. Please read these carefully, and if you have any questions that are not on this list below please communicate with your travel agent as your first line of contact, or alternatively Choose Your Cruise via

Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to cruising with you again in 2021 once it is appropriate to do so.
