Let’s face it, there are a lot of theme cruises out there vying for our attention. So what makes the Smooth Jazz Cruise produced by  Entertainment Cruise Productions, LLC so special?

For starters, the Smooth Jazz Cruise is special because of the team behind the scenes that produce the full-ship charters.  I have met Michael Lazaroff,  Executive Director of the Entertainment Cruise Productions, LLC many times at various jazz functions over the years. What impressed me from the very beginning was the genuine friendliness of their staff and Micheal’s obvious passion to keep jazz alive and well.

In addition, I am in awe of anyone that has managed to successfully charter ships while producing live music festivals that usually sell out before the ship returns to port. Check out this video to learn more about jazz cruise charters.
