Big Band Cruises
Does anyone know if there are any big band cruises scheduled for 2004?

I know that Crystal does BB Themes, and usually hire a popular band like the Glenn Miller Orchestra... I can't find info on their website, but you can pick up any Crystal brochure from a cruise agent, or AAA, and it's listed atop each theme cruise what kind of theme they are. Big Band Cruises usually go over REALLY well on Crystal. Last year they were on the holiday cruises and several trans-ocean crossings.

Happy cruising!

Holland America has 2 BIg Band cruises scheduled for 2004- they are both transatlantic cruises. If I can help you let me know.

Crystal has great big band theme cruises, the last one from New York to South Hampton England had the Ted Herman Orchestra playing powerful big band show and dancing as well as Tony Levinsten big band promoter historian giving lectures and Q and A. the ship had big band movies playing 24-7 on the state room TVs and great movies such as Charlie Parker Story and The Benny Goodman Story, very fun. I think they have another Ted Herman Big Band cruise in Feb of 05 so check the Crystal Web site.

Hi, Gary - I'm the CD on two different vessels. One of them, the Empress of the North, has a total of 5 big band theme cruises this year, all on the Columbia River. It's a 7 day cruise. Check out our web site at American West Steamboat Company. Hope to see you aboard!
