Yeah, I can't quite picture them there!
I was just surprised to see how many bands do them! Basically, almost everyone, except the A++ listers like U2, Elton John, and Springsteen. There are cruises with KISS, Styx, Yes, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Joe Bonamassa, Marillion, Bad Company, etc etc. The pay must be good!
I've never been on one. My sister lives near Tampa and has been on a few but her stories (plus those of a friend that worked for Norwegian Cruise Line) have left me wondering about ones on really big ships. I have a friend who's nuts for European river cruises and those look like a lot of fun! There are smaller ship ones that do the Alaskan inside passage or the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence river and those look really interesting as well. Maybe in a few years.
Maybe someone could talk Geddy or Alex into this one!
Put it this way, if you’d like to travel then don’t take a cruise.
If you want to eat like a pig, see some onboard entertainment, get drunk whenever, and enjoy sunshine from the sea’s point of view, then take a cruise. They’re certainly not for everyone and 99 times out of 100 I’d rather not take a cruise but that one time is worth the experience.
From that list I’d see Hackett, Palmer, Barre (I’d be most interested in him above the entire list), Neal Morse, Saga, and Belew. I don’t know many of the others but I’d likely check them out because I’m there and there’s nothing to do in the middle of the sea anyway!
The eating and drinking sound good !! I forgot, there was a Moody Blues cruise as well! It actually took place about two weeks ago. They had the Moody Blues and "The Orchestra". which I had to look up- turns out it is ELO without Jeff Lynne. But you make a cruise sound good!
