I think the OP covered them all !
One could add ANYTHING by Jimmy Buffett!
My personal favorite might be "Orioco Flow" by Enya ( the "come sail away" song)

"On The Ocean" by K'Jon...you can always use some neo-soul on your Ipod and it's a beautiful ballad using the allegory of the ocean to represent the different waves of life

While on an Alaskan cruise I played that on a portable CD player. The sun was setting across these mountains with the reflection in the water.
That put me almost in tears.

Well I should add - "I've got friends in low places" - it is the ONE song that is always sung at karaoke onboard and I always think of cruising when I hear it..

Kokomo has become the official cruise song at our household. Whenever the "fever" hits we get out our drink of the day glasses, fill 'em with something from a blender and start dancing around singing

Aruba, Jamaica, ooh I wanna take you to
Key Largo, Montego . . . etc.

Oh yeh - ah heck, now you guys have got me started and I gotta' go get out the blender! 8)

We always listen to a 2 CD set, (album), that I had purchased for our second cruise back in 2002. It's titled "Caribbean Lounge" .
It has 2 CDs and hits the spot for us, prior and after a cruise. Some of the song titles "Jamaican Mambo"..."Limbo Bug"..."Mambo St. Croix"..."BWI Express", and many others. The DC set is distributed by "Delta EntertainmentCorp." out of LA, CA. The bar code # is 1811133112, and the stock # is 36041.[/i]

We also like listening to "Hawaiian" music. I reccomend a 2 CD set titled " Greetings from Hawaii". This CD set is also distributed by "Delta Entertainment Corp. The bar code is 1811196532 and the stock # is 24852.

We hope that you will like these as much as we do.

Also can someone please explain to me just how to post my "Cruise Clock". I've followed other peoples directions and I just can't seem to get it. Also how do I post our photo. It doesn't work either. Thanks...Dave.

Default more songs!!

Here is a blog I found, listing tons of songs about sailing!

http://messingaboutinboats.typepad.c...ailing__1.html

I just bought my ipod nano 8 gig this morning; can't wait to get home tonight and start filling it up with songs and photos, etc.

Of course, I will check out cd's from my library for songs, so I dont' have to pay for downloading too many.

Used to use mp3sugar.com which had downloads for 10 cents each, but they are no longer in business I guess. Sucks!

Default UPDATE.....

I came across these sites listing great road trip songs, some of which also apply to any sort of vacation, including a cruise vacation. Of coruse, with the excursions that involve bicycles, jeep, ATV, or even taking a bus tour.

http://www.carsforgirls.com/index.ph...ad-trip-tunes/
http://www.roadtripamerica.com/forum...ead.php?t=7535
http://answers.yahoo.com/question/in...2174514AACsHjf
http://www.marieclaire.com/celebrity...oad-trip-songs

So far, the cruise/tropical island songs I've found and put on my "cruise" playlist are as follows:

Boat Drinks - Jimmy Buffett
Caribbean - Barefoot Man
Caribbean Breeze - The Rippingtons
Caribbean Calypso - Caribbean Party Music: Jamaican, Calypso, Steel Drums and other
Come Sail Away - Styx
The Cruise - Barefoot Man
Cruisin' - Smokey Robinson
Don't Worry, Be Happy - Bobby McFerrin
Island Fever - Barefoot Man
Kokomo - The Beach Boys
La Isla Bonita - Madonna
The Love Boat Theme - Silver Screen Symphony & Tinseltown Singers
Lovely Cruise - Jimmy Buffett
Margarita Daze - Barefoot Man
Margaritaville - Jimmy Buffett
Mexico - Jimmy Buffett
Ocean's Relaxing Surf with Celtic Harp & Pan Flute - Silver Bells Music
Ocean Sounds - Natural Sounds with Music
Ocean Waves - Sounds of the Earth
On the Ocean - K'Jon
Sailing - Christopher Cross
The Sea - Morcheeba
Sea Cruise - Frankie Ford
Sea of Love - Phil Phillips
Sunset Cruise - David Arkenstone
Tropical Beach Comber - The Barefoot Man
Two Tickets to Paradise - Eddie Money
Where the Boat Leaves From - Zac Brown Band

I also have lots of songs that also suit cruises, but are primarily categories as "vacation, summer, disco, party time, etc, such as:

Vacation - The Go-Go's
We Got the Beat - The Go-Go's
Perfect Day - Hoku
Holiday - Madonna
Get the Party Started - P!nk
The Boys of Summer - Don Henley
Endless Summer Nights - Richard Marx
Hot Fun In the Summertime - Sly & The Family Stone
Perfect Day - Hoku
Summer Nights - Olivia Newton-John & John Travolta
Summer Breeze - Seals and Crofts
Soak Up the Sun - Sheryl Crow
Thank God It's Friday - Love & Kisses

so between my various playlists, I'm all set to cruise and party!

Of course, I'm still not done finding songs!


Michelle
