Default Ladies & Gentleman, let me introduce..

This is where we have to PRETEND that this would happen, but..........Most of us have seen the over the hill entertainment that entertains on ships..NOT that we sometimes don't enjoy some of it, but lets face it..its been a while since they have been famous...
On one cruise we saw the Captain and Tenille, another, Johnny Tillotson...boy do I have a story about him....But i digress IF the ships could get up to the minute name entertainment..WHO would you love to get to see....For me it I would love to see the Rolling Stones.....Trip /Monday Chat Host

We had the Beatles on my last cruise.

I would like to have Neil Diamond or Simon and Garfunkel.

Marc, as often as you have cruised, I think that to see the Beatles you would not have cruised since 1971. {{grin}}

Definately Barry and Robin Gibb of the Bee Gees, as Maurice is gone now, but I would dearly love to see the two surviving brothers. I also second (or third) the motion to see Simon & Garfunkel, and maybe even Peter Paul & Mary. Or... Jimmy Buffet maybe? Perfect cruising music!

I read the Radisson is doing a Beatles cruise, maybe that's what Marc is talking about.

They have a group imitating the Beatles and the entire cruise is related to the Fab Four, I bet that would be a great cruise for all us Beatles fans.

On a sadder note...I though Harry Neilsen crossed over a few years back, but I'm not definate on that one.

I would love to see just Paul Simon, saw him many moons ago and he put on a great show. I could do without Art....I saw them on last year's Grammy's and they didn't look that happy to be together...too bad.

But I would love to see "JT "James Taylor. And Jimmy Buffet on a Southern Caribbean cruise with a stop in Key West of course.

Everybody is suggesting musical groups. There are a bunch of those I'd like to see also, but how about some comedians, magicians, impersonators, hypnotists or jugglers?

I'd like to see Steven Wright, Steve Martin, Lance Burton, Siegfried and Roy, Chris Rock, Bill Cosby, Don Rickles, Dennis Miller.

There is definitely room for improvement in the entertainment field on the ships.

Regards,
Thomas

I second Thomas' suggestions, but would like to add The Eagles, Elton John, Billy Joel (could you see him doing the music trivia on the piano?) and Garth Brooks (the only country singer I really like.)

No doubt about it....Billy Joel and Elton John. I saw them earlier this year and it was by far the best concert I've even seen! Then they could play throughout the ship on the various pianos!

Don't laugh, but for nostalgia's sake we'd like to see Engelbert Humperdink again. That guy just gets better & better. If we can't have him, we'll gladly settle for a BeeGees & Eagles concert. Dream on, dream on....!

For comedians I would love to see Dave Attell. The cool thing about him is that he would actually hang out with the passengers the whole time, too.

For music I think it would be fun to have an 80s hair band cruise featuring Whitesnake, Poison, Damn Yankees, Def Leppard, etc.

I'd also go on a hard rock cruise featuring bands like Limp Bizkit, Linkin Park, Korn, Disturbed, Evanescence... but the ship would have to go into drydock afterward! I have no doubt there would be a lot of damage done. But it would introduce a whole new generation to cruising!

Cheers,
Michelle B.

I would like to sit on the LIDO deck with my "cocktail of the day" and just hang out with Oprah Winfrey. Maybe I could talk her into participating in the Survival game.

Billy Joel and Elton John together get my vote but then I like James Taylor, too and I'm a major Bill Cosby, Billy Crystal and Robin Williams fan!

Years ago I saw Petula Clark and Jim Nabors (separate cruises) and they really put on great shows, in fact, they added shows but this was on longer cruises, not 7 days. Jim Nabors told some of the longest, funniest stories I've ever heard in my life. The theater was packed, SRO, and everyone was absolutely roaring and no one wanted the show to end. He put on the longest show I've ever seen and they had to repeat it several times.

I also saw Phyllis Diller in 1995 and poor thing was pitiful when I saw her getting off the next day in San Juan, trench coat, oxfords, wig with a scarf holding it on, the way she looked made me sad actually.
