Soulshine At Sea: Second Voyage will once again embrace Michael Franti’s motto of being “100% healthy 90% of the time” with a jam-packed schedule of events encompassing community wellness, exclusive experiences and non-stop live music from a diverse lineup of special guests, John Butler, SOJA, Fortunate Youth, The New Respects, Tropidelic and more to be announced. In addition, Franti will present an assortment of uniquely curated activities – including Cooking with the Franti’s, Soulshine Cocktails, a “Soulshines’s Got Talent” competition, daily yoga, and more – along with unforgettable opportunities for cruisers to interact with some of their favorite performers.
“My favorite part of Soulshine at Sea is that it’s the greatest backstage party on the ocean. Fans and artists hanging out together all day and night,” says Michael Franti. “The thing I remember most about Year 1 is how in just four days, a whole community was created of Soulrockers from all over the place who came together to rock out on the boat and kept in contact with one another year round! Yoga and fitness classes with live music in the morning with live music and DJ’s all afternoon and late into the night. I’m super excited about this year’s lineup of artist and wellness leaders who are coming on board and more than anything, I can’t wait to have face time with all the fans I see from a distance at shows all summer long!”
Beyond the onboard experience, Soulshine At Sea cruisers will have the chance to explore the local culture and crystal blue waters in Costa Maya, Mexico. Please note: Shore excursions will not be available until 4-6 weeks prior to sailing. Cruisers will be able to book an excursion upon receipt of their official booking number.
The luxurious Norwegian Pearl will provide everything needed to infuse Soulshine At Sea: Second Voyage with good vibes and great times, including fully stocked bars at (almost) every corner, tasty dining options, the Pool Deck (with multiple hot tubs), the Pearl Club Casino, Mandara Spa, Body Waves Fitness Center, Sports Court and much more.

ABOUT MICHAEL FRANTI:
Michael Franti is a globally recognized musician, humanitarian, activist and award-winning filmmaker revered for his high-energy live shows, inspiring music, devotion to health and wellness, worldwide philanthropic efforts, and the power of optimism. Throughout his multi-decade career, Franti has earned three Billboard No. 1’s with the triumphantly hopeful hits, “Sound of Sunshine,” “Say Hey (I Love You),” and “I Got You,” as well as six Top 30 Hot AC singles, 10 Top 25 AAA singles and three Billboard Top 5 Rock Albums. Follow Your Heart, Franti & Spearhead’s 12th studio album, was released in 2022, highlighted by the lead single, “Good Day For A Good Day,” which marked their 10th Top 25 AAA hit to date.
In January 2019, Franti released his self-directed documentary, “Stay Human,” which won an array of awards at film festivals worldwide and influenced his writing for his 2019 album ‘Stay Human Vol. II (Thirty Tigers),’ which debuted at No. 1 on both the Americana and Independent Albums charts and also received critical acclaim from USA Today, Billboard, Associated Press and Paste. Influenced by the film, Franti’s “Stay Human” podcast, presented by Gibson on the American Songwriter Podcast Network, features creatives from all walks of life, with new episodes available each week.
Deemed a “ground-breaking musician” by Entrepreneur, Franti launched a virtual event revolution in June 2020 with his Stay At Home Concert World Tour, a creation prompted by his first summer in 33 years in which he wasn’t on the road due to the global pandemic, performing for over 50,000 fans worldwide with seven uniquely themed virtual livestreams. In order to better connect with his Soulrocker community, Franti developed a dual-screen model, allowing fans to join a “Backstage Zoom Party Room” and interact directly with one another.
Michael Franti & Spearhead continue to foster their community both on and off stage with a wish-granting non-profit, Do It For The Love, founded by Franti and his wife, Sara. Do It For The Love brings those with life-threatening illnesses, veterans, and children with severe challenges to concerts worldwide, fulfilling over 3,300 wishes and touching the lives of over 12,000 people to date. Franti also owns SOULSHINE Bali, a 32-room top-rated yoga retreat hotel located in Ubud, Bali.
