January 20th through 24th sees Royal Caribbean’s Mariner of the Seas sail for a 33rd time in 18 years and now with $120 million in amplified upgrades and luxurious onboard amenities. These include a world-class dining experience with over 12 restaurants and bars like a high-end steakhouse, hibachi and sushi, Italian, a sports bar and arcade, Johnny Rockets, Starbucks, and more.

In all, more than 60 acts will play and there will be 96 hours of music as the ship sails from Port Canaveral’s Space Coast to Labadee’s Private Paradise.

Here are some of the best acts to look forward to.


Few people have been as pivotal to the trance game as Ferry Corsten. He’s a long time player and continues to evolve the sounds with his electric sets and always emotive productions. Do not miss.


International DJ, producer, In Search of Sunrise resident, host of Global DJ Broadcast and Destinations, and owner of Coldharbour Recordings… Markus Schultz is a real titan of the scene with his own widescreen take on electronic dance music.


UK house icons Gorgon City are big tune makers and impressive DJs. They join the dots between the different niches of the genre and always bring fresh sets and sounds. For a contemporary take on the gone, there is no finer act.  


US Dirtybird label boss Claude von Stoke brought a new sense of fun and personality to house. Big beats, big samples, playful grooves have always defined his sounds and they continue to do so. You can be sure of a big old time with him in charge.
