Raising Reggae's Sails: Damian Marley's Welcome to Jamrock Cruise Grows Into Genre's Premiere Event
Record crowds pack a bigger boat this year to see Sean Paul, Toots and the Maytals, Beenie Man and two Marley brothers On a balmy South Florida evening aboard Royal Caribbean's Independence of the Seas, DJ Norie of NYC's Power 105.1 plays a vibrant mix of reggae hits to roughly 3,600 passengers scattered across the ship's 11th floor open-air deck. Norie stops the music at around 6:40 PM as the event's founder, host, and headlining act suddenly appears on stage and takes the mic.
