Special Interest Cruises

A fellow member of mine at the Y just returned from a RockNRoll themed cruise. After doing a little search, we found quite a few of them to be enjoyed. Who among us has taken one of these types of cruises? What was the focus on your adventure? What were your impressions? Would you take another one?

I think I could enjoy many of the specialty cruises (the Motorcycle cruise sounds really interesting) as well as several different music cruises.

The problem with them (as far as I'm concerned) is that they price themselves out of my market.

I tend to agree with you. It's the price of having fairly close access to celebrity-types, I think.

I've seen a couple that I would have been interested in, hosted by winners of MasterChef and Property Brothers, but haven't booked them. The company I work for is hosting one in January that would be really good to go on, with lots of onboard activities, seminars, demos, etc., but I can't book it because we already have a cruise booked for March. Oh well, maybe another time....

Trouble is, celebrity doesn't impress me enough to pay to be close. Good entertainment, possibly, but not the person.

One time I rented a boat on Lake Shasta for the weekend. One night, while prowling along the shoreline, I bumped into this old hippy looking guy. We chatted for a while. While saying our goodbyes, he mentioned his name -- William.

After thinking about it for about 20 minutes it hit me -- Willie Nelson!

The Carnival Concert series is great. This year I saw Journey perform on the Victory and next year I'm going on the Vista to see Jay Leno. The ship theater is a great size for a concert and has a good sound system. This year for Leno we got the VIP tickets to sit in front row and for a meet and great with photo opp before the show. Should be fun because I see him around my neighborhood all the time in different cars and my friends son met him when he entertained the troops in the Middle East.

The cruise is not much more then the regular cruises and the concert tickets are very reasonable considering what a concert cost today.

One of my friends did a Master Chef Cruise on HAL and she loved it.

If somebody you like is playing on Carnival I think it's worth it to go, but no concert shirts for sale on the ship Nervous
