Leaving A Positive Legacy since 2004…

Jam Cruise 1 is where it all started for Positive Legacy. Since 2010, Positive Legacy has raised over $260,700 during Jam Cruise to support their environmental and humanitarian programs. Our team has taken over 1125 guests on Day of Services outings during port stops to make a tangible impact on local communities we visit.

In 2023, Positive Legacy celebrated reaching $1 Million Dollars in total grant funding! We are so proud of our team for this huge milestone and incredibly grateful to everyone who has helped with Leaving A Positive Legacy onshore and on board. We can’t wait to see what we can accomplish in the future together!


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 Jam Cruise.


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.

Thank you for continuing to support our efforts to harness the power of music for good!

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 2025 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 JC20 lineup was off the charts and the music created was inspirational and uplifting – just what Jam Cruise is all about. Stay tuned for JC21 info!
