Singing at Sea is the  World’s Largest Southern Gospel Music Cruise where Kids 15 & under sail FREE*!

“It’s the only all-Christian charter in our industry, and I like that environment.  A retreat from the world.
We live in the world every day; but for one week we don’t have to deal with it, we’re with God’s people.
I think everyone needs a retreat like that every once in a while.

– Mark

Are you ready to take a Caribbean adventure with MTQ?

Then mark your calendars for January 21-26, 2019!  We will depart from Tampa, Florida on Royal Caribbean’s Brilliance of the Seas for Cozumel and Costa Maya, Mexico.  In these ports of call, you will have the opportunity to tour Mayan Ruins dating back to 1250 A.D., relax on silky white beaches or sample locally grown pineapple fresh from the tree.  Cozumel is one of our favorite ports.  Separated from the mainland by the Cozumel Channel, you have the option to explore the island or take an excursion to the mainland.  In recent years, we have seen more and more excursions take people by ferry to Yucatan Peninsula to enjoy sites like Coba, Tulum, and even Cancun!

When we arrive in Costa Maya, you’ll step into a port created just for cruise passengers, yet, with an authentic Mexican flare.  The tourist area is built to resemble the ancient Mayan temples of old and offers a variety of activities such as water sports, historic tours, family-friendly areas, and of course, white sandy beaches.

The 45th Singing at Sea cruise has a lot to offer when it comes to stunning ports of call, gourmet food, and luxury accommodations on Royal Caribbean’s Brilliance of the Seas but the most loved thing about this trip will always be the music.  The Mark Trammell Quartet, along with 25 other Southern Gospel groups will be singing from dawn to dusk.  Concerts are held in every theater aboard the ship, every day.  The casinos and bars are closed making this an all-Christian charter cruise.  On Singing at Sea you’ll take your family and friends on a cruise that will build your walk with God, provide luxury accommodations for your enjoyment and visit ports of call where you’ll behold the beauty of God’s creation.

It’s like being in a small town for a week – you’re all together.  Unlike a regular concert, we don’t have another concert in another town to be at the next day.  Fans enjoy being on the ship with their favorite groups, walking the halls with their favorite singers or being able to sit down and talk with them.

Call 1-800-334-2630 to reserve your cabin.

Be sure to tell them you want to cruise with MTQ!
