Johnson City, TN – Last week, IMC Concerts and Inspiration Cruises announced the on-sale date for an exciting cruise through New England and into Canada. This new destination for Gospel Music Celebration is to commemorate its 10-year anniversary. After just four days, IMC President Landon Beene has announced that the Gospel Music Celebration Cruise, set to sail September 5-12, 2020, has sold out. “We are thrilled with this news,” says Beene. “Although our cruises almost always sell out, we have never had a cruise to sell out in just four days’ time. I am overwhelmed, but I am even more proud that our passengers have decided to return to Gospel Music Celebration year after year.”
Steve Dick, owner and president of Inspiration Cruises, echoes Beene’s excitement. “What an amazing couple of days…to sell out the Canada & New England Gospel Music Celebration cruise in record-breaking time! Working with Landon Beene and his group of artists is always a privilege for Inspiration Cruises & Tours,” Dick states.
Those still interested in being a part of the 2020 Canada & New England Gospel Music Celebration Cruise are encouraged to contact Inspiration Cruises to be placed on the wait list. “It’s very early, and the Cruise doesn’t sail for a year,” Beene adds. We anticipate cancellation, so we encourage those interested in traveling with us to reach out to Inspiration to be added to the wait list.”
Beene also says plans are already in the works for another New England Cruise. “We have wanted to offer this itinerary for quite a while, but it was important that we wait for the right time. Gospel Music Cruises is known for our rotating itineraries. We travel to many different destinations, and we will definitely be planning to return to New England either in 2022 or 2023,” he says.
IMC offered its first cruise option to Southern Gospel Music lovers in 2010. Over the past 10 years, Gospel Music Celebration cruises presented by IMC and Inspiration Cruises have historically sold out as Southern Gospel Music lovers have enjoyed trips to such picturesque destinations as the Caribbean, the Mexican Riviera, Alaska and Hawaii.
The 2020 Canada New England Gospel Music Celebration will feature many of the most popular groups in Southern Gospel Music, including the Booth Brothers, The Collingsworth Family, Greater Vision, Legacy Five and Triumphant Quartet, as well as fan favorite, renowned speaker Dennis Swanberg.
