Leaving A Positive Legacy since 2004…

Jam Cruise 1 is where it all started for Positive Legacy. We are thrilled to announce that Positive Legacy is celebrating reaching $1 Million Dollars in total grant funding in 2023! Thanks to everyone for Leaving A Positive Legacy with us onshore and on board.


Positive Legacy, the 501(c)(3) not-for-profit arm of Cloud 9 Adventures, is committed to integrating live music and service to positively impact the communities we visit. Positive Legacy’s mission inspires music fans and artists to collectively take action and build a better world. The goal is to develop service activities that Jam Cruisers can participate in to bring a deeper sense of purpose to their trip. Learn more about what you can expect from Positive Legacy below and keep an eye out for more information on how to get involved during JC20.


The Conscious Cruising program encourages cruisers to give back, engage, and be eco-conscious by replacing all plastic cups onboard Jam Cruise with environmentally safe alternatives such as compostable cups, ensuring no plastic straws are used, and involving industry leading experts to educate fans and our shipboard partners alike. Conscious Cruising works with Positive Legacy and Trees, Water & People to help offset carbon emissions and reduce greenhouse gases in the atmosphere – all in an effort to make Jam Cruise one of the greenest cruises on the seven seas.

Day of Service

The Day of Service is a fan favorite and we truly appreciate Jam Cruisers’ enthusiasm and gratitude for being able to get involved with projects firsthand. Past outings have taken guests to pick up trash, visit an educational farm, and so much more. Details on our 2024 Day of Service will be announced in the months to come.

Positive Legacy Celebration

A heartfelt thank you to Matt Butler who curates an improvisational masterpiece for Positive Legacy’s annual celebration with the Conscious Cruisers. We are extremely grateful to Matt and to all the artists who have joined over the years! The JC19 lineup was off the charts and the music created was inspirational and uplifting – just what Jam Cruise is all about. Stay tuned for JC20 info!

Charity Auctions

Special thanks to everyone who has participated and bid in our charity auction onboard Jam Cruise over the years. We raised over $30,000 in 2023 and hope to beat that number in 2024!

Auction proceeds support Positive Legacy’s continued environmental & humanitarian projects. Stay tuned for ways to donate and bid in the JC20 charity auctions.
