R&B star Maxwell has recruited his famous friends and is setting sail for a Caribbean cruise.

The Pretty Wings hitmaker is launching the Maxwell + The 7 Seas Caribbean cruise next year (15), and is bringing fellow musicians including Erykah Badu, Anthony Hamilton, Ledisi, Robert Glasper, Chrisette Michele, the Wailers, and comedian DL Hughley for the seven-day trip.

Guests will depart from Port Canaveral, Florida on Royal Caribbean's Freedom of the Seas and make stops in St. Thomas, St. Maarten and the private island of Cococay. On board, revellers can also enjoy multiple live performances from the musicians.

The Maxwell + The 7 Seas cruise kicks off on 3 May and disembarks on 10 May (14).
