Christmas on the Cumberland Evening Holiday Cruise

Christmas on the Cumberland Evening Holiday Cruise

It’s the most wonderful cruise of the year! The General Jackson Showboat proudly presents their one-of-a-kind holiday treat, Christmas on the Cumberland! 

Glimmering lights, glamorous costumes and glorious choreography fill the Victorian Theater stage. Baby, it may be cold outside but your heart will be warmed by the lush melodies and harmonies of the cast of Christmas on the Cumberland. Featuring an incredible ensemble of Nashville’s finest talents, our twelve multi-talented musicians, singers and dancers fill the stage with powerful production numbers of Christmas classics like “Sleigh Ride”, “Jingle Bells” and Nat King Cole’s “The Christmas Song”. New for 2016 is an exciting snow medley with songs like “Do You Want to Build a Snowman”, “Snow” and “White Christmas” made famous from classic Christmas movies. We’ll cruise on down the Cumberland to downtown Nashville with sophisticated versions of new contemporary classics like “All I Want For Christmas is You” and “Cool Yule”. And Christmas wouldn’t be complete with a visit from “Mr. Santa”.  Our cruise on the Cumberland culminates with a stirring and touching celebration of the real “reason for the season”.

Join us with a whole new way to celebrate the season, Christmas on the Cumberland on the General Jackson Showboat!
