This just in! The Opry Country Classics Cruise will set sail once again, this time with Opry stars Jean Shepard, Jeannie Seely, Jan Howard, Mandy Barnett, T.G. Sheppard and host Ralph Emery! The 2012 event, which sails January 28 - February 4, marks the 15th annual Opry cruise.

Fans aboard the ship will be treated to private shows from the artists on the bill; their own songs blended with the country classic tunes that all country lovers know and enjoy. Additionally, there will be a celebrity-guest karaoke event and cocktail party. Once you've had your fill of music, should that happen, you can 'relax' at the onboard ice-skating rink or nine-hole mini-golf course.

After a leave of absence, no thanks to Hurricane Katrina, the Opry Country Classics Cruise, with Royal Caribbean International's Voyager of the Seas, will make waves out of New Orleans once again -- news that has everyone excited. "We are delighted that the Grand Ole Opry is sailing with Royal Caribbean again," Vicki Freed, Royal Caribbean International's vice president of sales commented in a statement. "Country stars and fans alike will have a great time aboard Voyager of the Seas, especially during our first season back in the exciting city of New Orleans."

The Opry Country Classics cruise will take port in Falmouth, Jamaica; George Town, Grand Cayman and Cozumel, Mexico. For more information, or to book your spot, visit
