Default Concert Cruise

Hi everybody!!

I was just wondering if anyone has ever been on the Carnival Inspiration for a concert cruise??? I have a cabin for VH1 Best Cruise Ever. A bunch of cool bands are performing! I've never been on a cruise. Is anybody else going??

Haven't been yet....
(usually charge way too much over egular rates for the band cruises)

From what I've read, they are pretty nice, if you pay to be in the group.
Sucks when you just happen to be on that cruise and the show lounges and decks are closed for private concerts and meet and greets for those who paid the high rates for the music cruise.

I know John Mayer and Rick Springfield do a Carnival cruise for their fans every year.
Skynrd either just had one or has one coming up shortly.

One of the old boy bands did one last year also. (I forget if it was New Kids, or Backstreet or the other one)

I'd be tempted if one of my absolute favorite bands did one.
Otherwise, I'd rather keep taking 2 cruises a year for what I'd pay for one band cruise. (maybe even 3 cruises)

Same for me,,,never done one of the "concert cruises", but have done "Inspiration" a number of times, and she's a GREAT ship. I know you'll enjoy your cruise, and probably get "hooked on cruizin", just like the rest of us.

I am not going -- though I'd love to... Isn't Shine down or 3 doors down - "headlining"?? I have a few friends that have already booked though. I am sooo jealous.

Please be sure to post how it goes....

I know they are doing a Twilight cruise too... I love the Twilight series... but would NOT want to be in that ship with a bunch of crazies. lol

I ckecked and the Skynyrd cruise starts at $749 ...plus gov't taxes and fees of course. It is a charter cruise, so no extraneous pax being denied entry to events. But, for a 4 day cruise, that is so over priced. No way.
