Rickey Smiley Announces HIS Cruise


Taking the party from the airwaves to the ocean waves.

Oooooooookay, we are not trying to SNS but … Rickey Smiley is doing a cruise … TOO. Well since Reach Media is majority owned by Radio One, it actually makes sense since he’s taken over for Tom Joyner.

Everything you love about the Rickey Smiley Morning Show and the Russ Parr Morning Show – the laughs, the entertainment, the personalities, the music – will be live and on ten during a week-long celebration at sea…for adults only!


Rickey Smiley
  • 7 days: Sunday, October 11th – Sunday, October 18th
  • Departing from the Port of Baltimore…cruising to Bermuda (pink sand beaches!) and the Caribbean

Interaction with our performers doesn’t stop at the stage. Our entertainers will also share in panels, seminars and other activities with you!

Concerts, theme nights, comedy, morning inspiration, pool parties, old school games, casino tournaments, fitness, autograph signings, late night parties and more!

  • “Rickey Smiley’s Comedy Bootcamp” – Bring your best tight set of 3 – 5 minutes and be critiqued by Rickey Smiley and fellow comedians for a chance to win cash and prizes.
  • “Rickey Smiley’s Karaoke” – Come join Rickey, his crew and whatever else he has up his sleeve as he brings Karaoke to a whole new level for your chance to win cash and prizes.
  • “Russ Parr’s Wrong Song Pool Party” – When the music is right, anything becomes a dance floor…even a pool! Join Russ Parr on the pool deck for a dance party featuring the most unexpected, multi-genre tunes to keep you moving – or splashing – on the dance floor. 
  • “Russ Parr’s T&A Giveaway” – It’s not what you think…it’s better. This is Russ Parr’s version of Name that Tune (Title and Artist). Guests will have a chance to win prizes with each round and to play double or nothing in the final rounds for a chance to add to their winnings.
