I believe I've had the Fantasy and Fascination mixed up for a while. That would explain the Collin/Colin issue I had earlier this year. So I'm switching them around. FA/FS who knew?!

In any case, if anyone is or knows anyone who is cruising the Ecstasy, the Conquest or the Elation in the next month, we need reports!

Thanks.

Laura,

I share your addiction. The very first cruise I was on was the Victory. I walking around the ship the first night to check everythings out and ran into the piano bar. That was it I was hooked!!! At that time they have a young man by the name of Kevin that played...OMG what a trip. I never laugh so hard or had so much fun......I was so upset when he left Carnival. So every night after dinner you would find me there in my little set at the bar. My friends would get upset because I didnt' go see the other shows.
But I was happy right there...and I am so thrilled there is no cure for this addiction....

Default The Valor

My wife and I thought that Duane, in the piano bar, on the Valor was absolutely fantastic!!!!! If you sail on the Valor be sure to check him out and ask him to sing the updated version of "My dingaling"

Scurvydog - Thanks that would be most appreciated!

fireba11 - Thanks for the feedback on Duane! Glad you enjoyed the piano bar! That's good news for anyone on the Valor in the next month.

irishseamom - I know. I was hooked the moment I set foot in the Rhapsody in Blue piano bar on the Inspiration on my first cruise. Of course it helped that the piano man was a very cute Kiwi named Darrin MacDonald who had an amazing voice. And the addiction became full blown once I saw Ron Pass on the Valor on my second cruise. Since then, my butt is pretty marched parked on a stool around the piano from beginning to end every night. Glad I'm not the only one!

Laura

Actually, Angela was still on the Ecstasy as of last Sat. We had the pleasure of her being around when our group did a 5 day last week. She was a real trooper too. We would call tunes that were so out there like "horse with no name" and she played and sang them. She has a great ear too. Just give her an mp3 player and some headphones and she'll learn a tune real quick.

While I technically don't count as the entertainment, I sailed on the Elation in Sept of 2007 and Damian Brell was nice enough to let me sit in and play on two different nights (2nd night, and 4th night). He had a laptop with all his songs in front of him, but I just played some standards and some sing alongs (Billy Joel, Journey, etc).

I had just got finished doing a few shows in LA (I play guitar for various pop artists) and I was on the cruise by myself - so it was really nice to be albe to sit down at a piano and goof off a bit. It was one of the more special moments of my first cruise.

Cheers,
~ Joey ~

It's nine o'clock on a Saturday
The regular crowd shuffles in
There's an old man sitting next to me
Makin' love to his tonic and gin

He says, "Son, can you play me a memory
I'm not really sure how it goes
But it's sad and it's sweet and I knew it complete
When I wore a younger man's clothes."

la la la, di da da
La la, di di da da dum

Chorus:
Sing us a song, you're the piano man
Sing us a song tonight
Well, we're all in the mood for a melody
And you've got us all feelin' alright

Now John at the bar is a friend of mine
He gets me my drinks for free
And he's quick with a joke and he'll light up your smoke
But there's some place that he'd rather be
He says, "Bill, I believe this is killing me."
As the smile ran away from his face
"Well I'm sure that I could be a movie star
If I could get out of this place"

Oh, la la la, di da da
La la, di da da da dum

Now Paul is a real estate novelist
Who never had time for a wife
And he's talkin' with Davy, who's still in the Navy
And probably will be for life

And the waitress is practicing politics
As the businessman slowly gets stoned
Yes, they're sharing a drink they call loneliness
But it's better than drinkin' alone

Chorus
sing us a song you're the piano man
sing us a song tonight
well we're all in the mood for a melody
and you got us all feeling alright

It's a pretty good crowd for a Saturday
And the manager gives me a smile
'Cause he knows that it's me they've been comin' to see
To forget about life for a while
And the piano, it sounds like a carnival
And the microphone smells like a beer
And they sit at the bar and put bread in my jar
And say, "Man, what are you doin' here?"

Oh, la la la, di da da
La la, di da da da dum

Chorus:
sing us a song you're the piano man
sing us a song tonight
well we're all in the mood for a melody
and you got us all feeling alright

And let me just say on behalf of every piano man out there..... ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

! Mehawk, thanks.

Joey - sounds like you had fun with Damian. You know he's in LA recording his album now right? Oh and that's how Mark Weiser got started playing on ships, he was on a cruise and he filled in one night when the regular guy got sick. And the rest is history.

Cheerios!

Laura

So you're saying I could escape this LA traffic and still play music? Sign me up.

Actually I've been offered a few cruise gigs, but alas, as a single dad to a cute 7th grader, she likes it when I do local gigs. As in "are you on your way home, Mr. Rockstar? I've got math you need to help me with."

But I might bring her along with me this summer on Elation. Of course, we'll skip the piano bar...

Cheers,

First of all, please allow me to tell you how proud I am to hear a Dad that puts his child first. So many parents today just don't do that. She is blessed to have you as a Dad!!

Secondly, I am glad you got the chance to "goof off" as you put it.
Michael Smith is another piano player currently on the Elation out of California that is good about sharing the piano. We had one of Jimmy Buffets' guitar players on our Miracle cruise and he allowed him to jump in any ole time he wanted to. (Michael does piano and guitar in the piano bar...which is a nice change).

Most of the piano bar guys have allowed me to sing. But I actually prefer to sing harmony,so I would MUCH rather sing with them...than just to solo stuff. I am the only person I know that if the "re-do" fairy popped up and said you can have a career in music as a solo artist or back up...I would choose back up any day!!!! I know, I am weird!!

Happy Cruising!!

Brad is "unique" to say the least, keep feeding him shots and you will be in stitches.......so far Mark is my favorite but I still haven't gotten to hear Ron, I hear he is the best.

Ah, that is the $64,000 question. It's hard enough finding out who is currently on ships, Carnival is stingy with that information since schedules can change.

All I can say is keep your eye on this thread. Any future dates that I have listed (like Vince Strong on the Fantasy in July) come from the entertainers themselves. About a half dozen or so of them are kind enough to keep me updated on their schedules. Another half dozen or so I have contact info for and will email them to check in on occasion. And there are a few other cruisers in contact with other entertainers who keep up with their schedules as well.

But at this point it's way too early to find out much about November.

Laura

I guess no one knows who is on Imagination? I am leaving next week. I will report back when we return. I plan on spending every night there! I hope he/she is good! We were spoiled by Mark on the Valor back in Oct.!

I did not notice no name was there.

We were on the Imagination in February and it was Steve Kinsley or Brikley or something like that!! (sp?)I am not positive on the last name. He is going to the Spirit in June, but I think he will be on the Imagination through May.

We had a blast with him. Very nice fellow. He is new to Carnival, so he is developing his play list. But he had plenty of songs and all the old "piano bar songs".

Tell him that musical cruiser said hi!!!

According to the musician roster I got my hands on earlier this week, Steve Brisley signed off the Imagination on 05/19/08. Unfortunately the list hadn't been update to show who was in there now. I'm figuring if I get one in June, they'll have the May sign offs updated. Gotta love Carnival Corporate!

That, my friend, is the question of the hour. I'm on the Victory July 3 and I've been trying for a while to find out. This seems to be some sort of state secret however. I even used one of my channels to get in contact with Cruise Director and Musical Director on the Victory this week and they don't even know who is coming yet. Sigh.... maybe next week since it will be Bob's last week.

But as soon as I know y'all will know.

Happy Cruising,

Laura
