the experience

We are pleased to announce that Cruise to the Edge is BACK in 2025! This journey to Puerto Plata and Great Stirrup Cay aboard the NCL Gem will once again be an unbelievable journey to Prog Heaven! BAND ANNOUNCEMENTS ARE COMING SOON SO STAY TUNED…WE CAN’T WAIT TO SHARE!

In addition to these great ports, we will also have two music filled days at sea which will give you plenty of time to hang with fellow cruisers and artists without feeling rushed to get it all in!

Many of you enjoyed sailing with us this year on the Norwegian Pearl so you you will be excited to to learn we will be on the Pearl's sister ship in 2025, the Norwegian Gem. Refurbished in 2022, the Gem is truly a beauty and the perfect home for the 2025 Cruise the the Edge.

Each and every one of the Gem's staterooms were updated in this dry dock modernization. All staterooms feature a refreshed look with cool blue hues reminiscent of the calming ocean with silver and turquoise accents, new furniture, new carpeting, new headboards, new televisions as well as the addition of USB outlets where guests can charge their handheld devices.

The Norwegian Gem features a stellar pool deck allowing us to transform this space into our Outdoor Concert Stage where guests bask in the sun while watching the incredible bands on board. This outdoor stage, along with the additional venues throughout the Norwegian Gem, makes this ship a fantastic choice for artists and fans aboard Cruise to the Edge! 

Our lineup year after year rivals any other Prog Rock festival, land or sea and 2025 will not disappoint. Expect some big announcements over the coming weeks via Facebook and email. Expect all the great events and production that sets our cruises apart from the rest. This is going to be a cruise to remember!

Our most recent Alumni from the 2024 CTTE will have first priority booking, followed by All Past CTTE Alumni. Alumni will be given the best cabins (available in each category at time of booking) and priority for seating in the Main Theatre for selected performances. Once the alumni priority booking period has ended, we will open up booking to the General Public.
