We are working on a stellar entertainment line-up for this cruise, PLUS, a celebration of Women Who Have Changed the World. Stay tuned for our announcements.

Judy Collins

Judy Collins has long inspired audiences with sublime vocals, boldly vulnerable songwriting, personal life triumphs, and a firm commitment to social activism. In the 1960s, she evoked both the idealism and steely determination of a generation united against social and environmental injustices. Five decades later, with an iconic 55-album body of work, she continues to shine brightly, and new generations are inspired by both her luminescent presence and the spiritual discipline she developed to thrive in the music industry for half a century.

The award-winning singer-songwriter is esteemed for her imaginative interpretations of traditional and contemporary folk standards and her own poetically poignant original compositions. Judy’s stunning rendition of Joni Mitchell's “Both Sides Now” from her landmark 1967 album, Wildflowers, is in the Grammy Hall of Fame, and her dreamy and sweetly intimate version of “Send in the Clowns” won Song of the Year at the 1975 Grammy Awards. She’s garnered several top-ten hits and gold- and platinum-selling albums. And in 2008, artists such as Rufus Wainwright, Shawn Colvin, Dolly Parton, Joan Baez, and Leonard Cohen honored her legacy with the album Born to the Breed: A Tribute to Judy Collins.

In addition, Judy has also authored several books, including the powerful and inspiring Sanity & Grace: A Journey of Suicide, Survival, and Strength, her extraordinary memoir Sweet Judy Blue Eyes: My Life in Music, and Cravings, the no-holds-barred account she shared about her struggle with compulsive overeating to help others avoid having to take the same long, harrowing path to recovery. With Jill Godmillow, she co-directed Antonia: A Portrait of the Woman, an Academy Award–nominated film about Antonia Brico, the first woman to conduct major symphonies around the world. And she remains a social activist, representing UNICEF and numerous other causes.

Now 80, Judy is as creatively vigorous as ever—writing, touring worldwide, and nurturing fresh talent. She is a modern-day Renaissance woman who is also an accomplished painter, filmmaker, record label head, musical mentor, and keynote speaker for mental health and suicide prevention. She continues to create music of hope and healing that lights up the world and speaks to the heart.
