Norwegian says Bon Jovi will perform on the pool decks of each of the ships along with the 11-piece Kings of Suburbia band. He'll also host acoustic storyteller sets where cruisers can ask questions. 

Also planned for the voyages are shows by other artists to be announced at a later date and other themed activities. 

All passengers will receive an autographed event lithograph. Passengers in the first 400 cabins booked will be able to have a picture with Bon Jovi.  

The voyages are being organized in partnership with Bon Jovi's Runaway Tours and music cruise planner Sixthman. 

Fares for the Bahamas voyage start at $1,895 per person, based on double occupancy and not including taxes and fees. Fares for the Mediterranean voyage start at $2,221 per person.
