In true Party with a Purpose® fashion, radio host and philanthropist, Tom Joyner, announced that his highly anticipated 2019 Tom Joyner Foundation Fantastic Voyage® presented by Denny’s cruise has sold out in record time! This is the earliest ever for a sellout, even with the fact that talent/performers have not been announced – which will come at a later date.

The cruise will sail on the Carnival Magic April 7 – 14, 2019 from Miami with port stops in San Juan, St. Thomas and Grand Turk.
