Ahoy, country fans! If you’ve got some vacation time on the calendar, $1,000 to burn, and a hankering for the high seas, Blake Shelton is offering you the chance to be part of something special.

Next October, Shelton — along with other artists who have yet to be announced — will set sail on the Norwegian Jewel for a seven-day sojourn. During the cruise, passengers will be treated to the usual amenities, including swimming pools, hot tubs, and port stops in places like San Juan, Tortola, and Nassau, along with unique access to country music royalty.

What can you expect? Shelton’s promising a songwriting workshop, Q&A sessions, and an on-board version of ‘The Voice’ — as well as the possibility that he and his fellow sailing stars might just pop up on deck for an impromptu jam session or two.

Shelton’s cruise departs October 14, 2012, and packages range from $1,000 to $4,000. Start planning now!
