Positive Legacy, the 501(c)(3) not-for-profit arm of Cloud 9 Adventures, is committed to integrating live music and service by taking actions that 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 people can participate in to bring a deeper sense of purpose to their travel experiences and the music surrounding it.


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 in an effort to make Jam Cruise one of the greenest cruises on the seven seas. Conscious Cruising also work with Positive Legacy and Trees, Water & People to help offset carbon emissions from travel to Jam Cruise and to reduce greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.

Day of Service

Thank you to the many artists and fans that engaged in the Day of Service & Community Connection in Belize! We had such a great time visiting the protected space, comprised of 7 villages that voluntarily work to protect the wildlife. We enjoyed a nature tour learning about the local flora, fauna and the history of the village people who have lived harmoniously with the howler monkeys. We worked hard to improve the community’s welcome center and primary school by landscaping the Museum welcome center, painting buildings, laying piping for new plumbing, mixing and pouring concrete for a new pathway to make the facility more accessible and leveling surfaces.

After our work we enjoyed a delicious, locally sourced lunch while enjoying music from Daniel Rodriguez, Turkuaz, and local musicians who run a nonprofit called Drums Not Guns. The memories of leaving a positive legacy won’t be fading any time soon! Stay tuned for our 2020 Day of Service.
