tom joyner - fantastic voyage

DALLAS — The sold-out Tom Joyner Foundation Fantastic Voyage® presented by Denny’s is embarking on its 19th cruise starting today from Galveston, TX. Generally known as the original Party with a Purpose®, this empowering and groundbreaking event specifically caters to the cruising needs of the African-American community through its mission and featured entertainment. Setting sail April 29-May 6, the 2018 Voyage’s promise of nonstop entertainment includes An Evening with Anita Baker and performances from artists Tamar Braxton, The Isley Brothers, Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds, 112, SWV, En Vogue, and The O’Jays.

Hosted by renowned radio personality and philanthropist Tom Joyner, the Fantastic Voyage® is one of the most popular and spectacular events in the country. The first of its kind in inviting African-Americans to cruise with an event solely based on their vacation needs, the Voyage consistently sells out and features notable entertainment to create an unforgettable, 24/7 guest experience. Its action-packed seven-day itinerary boasts informative seminars, morning inspiration, fitness classes, intriguing ports, endless activities, concerts, popular celebrities and wildly creative theme nights – all while raising funds to support students in school at Historically Black Colleges and Universities across the country.

This year’s event will take place on the luxurious Carnival Breeze. Additional performances will be made by Pastor Shirley Caesar, Eric Roberson, Raheem DeVaughn, Marvin Sapp, Force MDs, Heatwave, Taste of Honey, and a lineup of famed rappers for “Kings of Crunk” and “Golden Era of Hip Hop” performances, as well as those previously mentioned.

“Our cruise just keeps getting bigger and better every year,” said an enthusiastic Joyner. ” Of course, I love that the Fantastic Voyage is the most fun and entertaining event in the country, but I’m really proud that it’s a way to keep on giving to a cause I’m so passionate about. Over the years, we have been able to help so many students that attend Historically Black Colleges and Universities and we look forward to continuing to do so in the future.”

“We’ve proudly partnered with the Tom Joyner Foundation for 17 years and come together over a shared belief and passion for continued education in our nation,” said John Miller, Denny’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our presence onboard the cruise is just one of many ways we can show our commitment to the rising stars of our country and invest in an initiative that is truly making a difference in students’ lives.”
