Sponsored by AT&T, Budweiser, Ford, Grainger, Royal Caribbean, Southwest Airlines, The Home Depot and TBS, daytime activities also included seminars and product giveaways throughout the week.

The cruise has raised more than $1 million each year for the Tom Joyner Foundation, which has the sole purpose of raising scholarship money to help keep students in historically black colleges.
