Default Jimmy Buffet Music?

I know Carnival has or had a rep for being the party boat, but do the play any Buffett?
Our last cruise did not. We are hoping that this one does! I could see myself sitting poolside with a frozen drink in hand listening to "One Particular Harbour" as we set sail.........If not, I guess we are going to have to bring our own and go on our own deck!

You'll find lots of it in the piano bar.

I always take my own just in case the ship doesn't play it. Nothing like sitting up on the sun deck with a drink in one hand and the sun on your skin listening to "Margaritaville"!! The sun deck is also a great place for peace and quite. Only adults allowed!

We love it too - we bring a CD player and ear peices to listen on the pool deck. One RCL cruise we were on played him constantly so we didnt' have to listen to our own... But we like it in the cabin too so we bring it always... Have you bought the newer two disc set? Or have you seen the DVD - mini concert? It is real good.. Debbie

I wonder what it would take to persuade Jimmy to cruise with us!!
That would be my dream come true cruise.

Happy Camper.........
What ship were you on? We went on the Soveriegn of the seas. No Buffett there.
I just got my husband the 4 box set. Almost $70.00, but has just about everything on it.
Going to see Jimmy this monday at a concert. Got a grass skirt and a bunch of lei's and of course a big parrot hat!

If "ANYONE" can get Jimmy on a cruise----P L E A S E - P L E A S E let me know!!!!!
We always try to hit a Margaritaville when we cruise... Well this time it will be Key West. And by the way - I always enjoy the hamburgers on a cruise - don't know why but there is just something about eating a burger while tanning on deck...

We were on the Rhapsody of the Seas in 2002 out of Glaveston and they played Buffett constantly - it was nice. We actually enjoy the layout of the ships much more on Carnival but at the time Carnival did not have a 7 night cruise out of Galveston so went on RCL. Debbie

I would think of cruising without taking a CD stereo for the room. I gotta have my music.

Had to comment--see the screen name? I recall the pool band playing a few of the songs-- but one Particular Harbor would be my choice too. Plan on bringing the Ipods, maybe some portable speakers for room?
One song line says it best "take me back to the island..." just listening at home gets me reved up, TA said mailed out the DOCS today woohoo.

Ok all you parrot heads.........I got one for you.
In the song " one particular harbor" Jimmy sings in a different language. What is it?
I think it's Cajun, but DH thinks it's spanish. I just don't know, does anyone? Thanks.

I am reading his book on turning 50 and he mentions making that song in Moorea so maybe it is island (Hawaiian) language... Debbie

Longtime parrothead here. My first cruise ever was sponsored by the Richmond Parrothead Club. We brought along our own band -- A1A -- and in addition to the parties on the ship (Ectasy), the band played at M-ville in Key West and Carlos & Charlies in Cozumel. The Atlanta Parrothead Club runs a cruise every year. Check out PHIP.com for a club chapter near you.

Party with a purpose...

Hi folks,

I just had to join in here. I am a big fan of JB but have never taken it to the level of joining a club. I wish I had. I may yet still.

I grew up in Florida and listened to JB all the time.

My very first cruise (before Liz) was on the Renaissance . 10 days, 2 days at each island. Wonderful cruise!

There is a bar called Bloody Mary's there. It has a large sign in front that lists all the famous people that have visited. JB was there of course!

Yeah. It was a great trip. Long flight over but well worth it.

The ship was nice. Food was great. I have so many pictures and videos taken there.

Took the video camera up when we went parasailing. Have a 360 degree view of Bali Hai (sic)...remember the movie ?

The water was the best part. So many shades of blue !!

The locals were always friendly. It helped if you spoke french, tho.

I am keeping all of the stuff I collected there, including names and numbers of locals for tours etc.

I want Liz to experience Tahiti, too.

My parrothead club, Ocean City Parrothead Club, every other year is running a cruise. Last year we were about 400 people and went on the Glory. It was wonderful!!! We had 3 happy hours, got shirts, and made lots of friends. We even had a toga party.

Check out the parrothead clubs on the web. Most times anybody is welcome to join along!!!

NO They do not. It was my biggest disappointment on my cruise on the Holiday last week. I only heard the song once when I requested "margaretaville" at the restaurant where we ate lunch in Mexico. It was sung in Spainish by a 3 piece band which was cool, but not as good as the real thing.
