After an unexpected two-year hiatus, Welcome To Jamrock Reggae Cruise returns in 2022 for its 7th annual musical excursion across the Caribbean Sea and announces its artist lineup. The new dates will be December 7-12, 2022, sailing on Royal Caribbean‘s Freedom of the Seas. The six-day, five night cruise will depart from Miami, Florida’s cruise port with stops in Montego Bay and Ocho Rios, Jamaica before its return.

Two-time Grammy award winner and living reggae legend Burning Spear will perform for the first time after a six-year hiatus. Classic dancehall fans are in store for a rare special performance from the legendary Shabba Ranks. Damian “Jr Gong” Marley and Stephen “Ragga” Marley will return to the stage with their catalog of hits. Dancehall icons like Bounty Killer, T.O.K. Cham and Ding Dong will heat up the crowd, while reggae acts from all generations like Johnny Osborne, Morgan Heritage, Cocoa Tea, Sizzla, j Boog and Kabaka Pyramid will tap into conscious minds alike. Cruisers will also swoon to the sounds of lover’s rock from singers Maxi Priest, Tarrus Riley, Christopher Ellis, Etana and newcomer Naomi Cowan.

Defending sound system champion Warrior Sound has also announced his return for the annual Sound Clash At Sea. This is one of WTJRC’s most-anticipated climatic events, where sound systems go head-to-head, tune-for-tune to battle it out for the championship title.
