Grammy Award-winning artist Kenny G has chartered Celebrity Cruises' (www.cruisingpower.com) Celebrity Millennium for a seven-night Alaska cruise on May 17, 2013.
The saxophonist will not only offer multiple performances during the sailing, but also will mix and mingle with guests onboard. Other recognized artists who are yet to be announced will also perform.
Kenny G is the biggest-selling instrumentalist of all time, with sales of more than 75-million records worldwide, and more than a dozen climbs to the top of Billboard's contemporary jazz chart. In the past year alone, Kenny performed in more than 100 concerts in the U.S., Asia and Russia.
"I'm excited for the opportunity to cruise with my closest fans aboard Celebrity Millennium," said Kenny G. "The experience of playing with my band and sharing the breathtaking sights of one of the most beautiful destinations in the world will be one I'll remember forever." The musician said the cruise will allow him to spend quality time and get to know the fans onboard, and that he thought the upcoming sailing will be a highlight of his career.
"We had the thrill of having Kenny perform on our newest Solstice-class ship, Celebrity Silhouette, during the ship's stateside debut in November, and watching the crowd interact, hearing his exceptional musical talent, and observing his engaging personality was so exciting," said Ron Gulaskey, Celebrity's director of corporate sales and charters. "He's approachable, funny, smart and interesting. The opportunity to sail with him for a week, and experience all this up-close, will create incredible memories for the fans onboard."
Reservations can be held with a deposit of only $100 per person until Jan. 15, 2012, when the full deposit will be due.
Special early booking benefits include guaranteed orchestra seating to his opening performance, if full deposits are made by or before that date.
