If you wanted to be a groupie for Selena in the '90s but never jumped on the chance, you’re in luck—the late artist will be celebrated with a cruise themed for her popular career.
Selena Quintanilla-Pérez began making music in the 1980s with her siblings, A.B. and Suzette, in Lake Jackson with the help of their father. Selena went on to achieve world-wide fame, producing hits such as the Grammy-nominated album “Amor Prohibido” in 1994, before she was tragically murdered in 1995 by her fan club president, Yolanda Saldívar. Next year will be the 25th anniversary of the artist’s death.
Leaving on September 25, 2020, the cruise was created to honor Selena’s life.
The trip comes with performances from her widower, Chris Perez, several Selena tribute bands, and music from rising Tejano artists like Nikki Lopez and Tina Mares. It leaves from Los Angeles and plans to stop in Ensenada, Mexico, before heading back to Los Angeles after the three-day excursion.
Aside from multiple Tejano concerts throughout the trip, cruise goers will experience dance lessons from professional instructors, celebrity-hosted events and karaoke. If you like clubbing, there will be a DJ spinning tracks every night in Club Cumbia and all-night dance parties to Selena’s music.
Prices range from $750 each for five guests in interior deck rooms to $3,000 per guest in a grand suite deck, and there will be a $200 discount per person until July 4. To reserve a room, call 702-542-4291.
