Recently, Carnival Cruise Line announced the initial 2017 Carnival LIVE lineup with top country acts Tim McGraw and Little Big Town as well as comedians Jay Leno and Jeff Foxworthy. The talents will perform on seven different ships departing from five U. S. homeports.
What is Carnival LIVE? If you haven’t already heard of it, Carnival LIVE is a one-of-a-kind entertainment experience that brings great live music and comedy to the seas, creating an opportunity for guests to enjoy captivating performances by top artists in an intimate, memorable setting where there’s never a bad seat in the house. Performances will be held in the ships’ main show lounges which range in capacity from 900 to 1,300 – giving shows a more personal feel.
Three-time Grammy Award winner Tim McGraw will bring his signature brand of country music to two Carnival ships with performances aboard Carnival Breeze March 2, and Carnival Valor March 3, while the ships are docked in Nassau, The Bahamas. In addition to 21 number one singles, 11 of McGraw’s albums have debuted at number one on the Billboard country album chart.
Platinum recording artist Little Big Town will entertain audiences with shows in Nassau aboard Carnival Dream May 11, and Carnival Valor May 12. The recipients of nine Country Music Association awards, the band has earned a loyal following for their unique mix of harmonies and incredible musical talents.
Successful comedian, Jeff Foxworthy is the largest selling comedy recording artist in history, a multiple Grammy Award nominee and author of 11 books. Famous for his “you might be a redneck if…” jokes, his comedy explores everyday family interactions and human nature. Foxworthy will perform two shows – one aboard Carnival Freedom June 21, and another aboard Carnival Ecstasy June 22, while the ships are docked in Nassau.
Jay Leno, host of NBC’s Tonight Show and member of the Television Hall of Fame, will entertain guests with his observational humor with a pair of hilarious performances in Cozumel aboard the Carnival Victory May 3, and Carnival’s newest ship the Carnival Vista May 4. Leno plays upwards of 200 shows a year and currently hosts “Jay Leno’s Garage” on the CNBC network.
Carnival LIVE tickets for Tim McGraw, Little Big Town, Jeff Foxworthy and Jay Leno range in price from $30 to $80 for general admission, much less than land-based venues. VIP tickets are available for $100 to $300 and include seating in the first five rows, a photo opportunity with the artist and a commemorative concert pass.

Jay Leno and Tim McGraw??!?!! AMAZING – that’s the best line up for cruise entertainment I’ve seen in a long time!
I have yet to get on a cruise where Carnival Live is happening. I should have planned better to take one when they first announce it and Jennifer Hudson was performing. Glad I got to see her live during the announcement in NY.
