To provide the highest level of musical talent for our clients in the cruising industry
and to be the preferred agency of choice for Musicians across the Caribbean.
We aspire to be the Caribbean’s Premier Entertainment Company providing great opportunities for quality musicians onboard Cruise Ships worldwide. For us, being a Premier Entertainment Company means offering first class musical talent, providing excellent customer service and guarantee continuous satisfaction to our clients.
Cruising Island Musician (CIM) is an Entertainment Company, facilitating mutual beneficial opportunities between Musicians and Cruise Lines worldwide. CIM was founded by us, Adam Karpati and Stephen Cox after listening to many Caribbean Musicians' feedback. We wanted to offer talented Caribbean Musicians more opportunities to entertain audiences on board Cruise Ships.
As we both worked on Cruise Ships for over a decade and enjoyed the many privileges it afforded us, we felt the need to help fellow entertainers to experience what so many of us know as “ship life”. We use our friendly, open-minded and vibrant personality to make a difference and to create a more personal relationship with our Musicians, making their transition smoother and helping them all the way, so they are not just an ID number.
As fellow Entertainers, we understand how hard you have worked to develop your skills as a Musician. We are dedicated to helping you make the most of your talent while treating you with the respect you deserve.
As for our clients, we provide support with taking over the hassle of organizing all the necessary paperwork whilst offering quality entertainment for their ships. We pursued our idea to start a business we both are passionate about. Using our first hand experiences from various Cruise Ships our goal is to fully prepare our Musicians for their journey and give all round information, so they can focus on giving their best performance while on board.
