What sort of activities will be planned on the ship besides music?

Jam Cruise 13 is working with the artists to have them each be a part of something special onboard.

Positive Legacy, Cloud 9's non-profit arm, will be organizing a service project in port for artists and fans to participate in to benefit the communities visited.
