Janet Jackson, Maxwell, Charlie Wilson, and Fantasia will be headling the 2019 Fantastic Voyage cruise.

The annual cruise is hosted by The Tom Joyner Foundation and will be celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.

Sheila E., Biz Markie, WAR, and MC Lyte are also among the performers.

“I’m proud of a lot of things we’ve accomplished on the Tom Joyner Morning Show, but I think I’m most proud of all the students we’ve helped stay in school for the last 20 years, and our biggest fundraiser for HBCUs [historically black colleges & universities] is the Fantastic Voyage cruise,” said Tom Joyner in a release. “This year our lineup makes it all the more special — Janet Jackson, Charlie Wilson, Maxwell and an endless list of performers!”

The cruise sets to sail on Apr. 7 from Miami on the Carnival Magic, and will stop in the Caribbean’s Amber Cove, San Juan and St. Thomas.

The ship will return on Apr. 14.

Denny’s will present this year’s celebration and alongside the Tom Joyner Foundation its Filmmakers Scholarship Program will recognize six exceptional scholars from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) who have produced a film about hunger in their communities.
