Floating Festivals

Following an incredible maiden voyage in 2018, Throwback 80's Music Festival takes to the seas once more in October 2019 for three nights of fun and flamboyance celebrating the 1980s.

Joining the previously announced line up of 80s pop stars Tony Hadley and UB40, Sister Sledge will also perform headline shows, treating passengers to performances of huge hits including We Are Family, Lost in Music and He's The Greatest Dancer.

Delighted to join the line up, Debbie and Kim said: “We’ve heard all about the Throwback cruise and it sounds like the most fantastic way to celebrate the 80s. We can’t wait to travel over from the States for this and join in with what will be three fantastic days and nights of fun!” 

The cruise will also see performances from The Fizz (featuring Bucks Fizz members Cheryl Baker, Jay Aston and Mike Nolan), Brother Beyond's Nathan Moore, Ska and 2 Tone tribute band The Gangsters and acapella super-group The Magnets.  

In addition to a stellar 80s line up, passengers will be transported back to their favourite decade with a full schedule packed with events including Q&As with stars, themed pop quizzes and karaoke.

Also included will be access to all of the brilliant features of the Explorer of the Seas and complimentary a la carte restaurant and buffet dining for breakfast lunch and dinner every day. (Speciality restaurants are also available for an additional charge)


Throwback 80s departs from Southampton for three nights from 11th October 2019 and includes a full day in the port city of Le Havre.
