I'm Not Going...But You Can

Rock vacations are all the rage right now. From festivals, to long weekends to cruises - you can basically find a vacation featuring your favorite band.

The Rockin' the Waves cruise features Skid Row,  L.A. Guns (Phil Lewis' version), Trixter and Warrant (featuring Robert Mason on vocals). 

You might recall I went on Vince Neil's Motley Cruise at the beginning of the year. That cruise was a lot of fun! It was four days - the Rockin' the Waves trip is an entire week. I'm not psychic, but I predict a lot of huge bar tabs. 

The Rockin' the Waves cruise is in March and stops in ports like Key West and Cozumel. It goes to some other places too...I suppose if you are gung ho on this trip, you'll do your own itinerary investigation.  

I wonder why rock trips are so hot right now? Is it because the fans are older and have more money...or because the bands are looking for new ways to stay relevant?

Rockin' the Boat isn't the only game in town, either. Sammy Hagar has a cruise. His is five days and goes to (where else?) Cabo San Lucas. Unlike the Rockin' the Boat cruise, Sammy won't be on board with the fans. So, you might get a chance to eat in the dining room next to Phil Lewis - but don't count on that during Sammy's excursion.

If you are not interested in the Sammy Hagar or Rockin' the Boat cruises...there's always the Simple Man. That one has Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Marshall Tucker Band, .38 Special, Bang Camaro...and more.

So, are you going on one of these rock cruises?

for the money they are asking, and for as long a cruise as it is... this lineup just isn't worth it to me (skid maybe, but the rest? nah)... im hoping vince does another cruise since i missed the last one, or maybe someone else will decide to do one

FireHouse is part of the cruise as well. Don't forget about them!
