How is this ship going to stay afloat with all of these bands?!

Seriously, on the surface it looks great to have so many bands, but will you be able to see all of the shows you want to?  Hard to believe.

Out of the 20+ bands...there's only 10-12...I'd really like to see...considering I've seen Yes 6 times - they're not a priority(and neither are some of the other biggies listed there).  I'm more interested in the newcomers.  So, I'd imagine you'd have to maybe prioritize what you want to see.  They've been doing this a long time...so I'm sure it'll work out.

I wish I could go to this cruise. But I have school.

What sorcery is this?
I look up, I'm almost blinded
by the warmth of what's inside me
and the taste that's in my soul,
but I'm dead inside as I stand alone...

Not much more expensive than a regular cruise of similar duration!  Now if only my wife were a prog fan...

VIP rooms are sold out (although, there is a waiting list).  Other cabins still available.

They are always expensive but then they are very popular. You have to like the 'all inclusive' aspect of the experience. Much is laid on for you and included in the price. I would love to do another one but I reckon it will be when I retire which could be another 15 years the way its going.Ouch

I would appreciate if someone who attended could comment on the experience. The Prog agenda looked very attractive but cruises are something which never caught my attention.

If I remember well it was something like 20 bands in a 5-day cruise, so around 4 concerts per day? that's fine for one or two days but I wonder if by the 4th day it may get a bit too much?

Also, I don't think there are enough proggers to fill a cruise ship so I guess that the Prog cruise thing is just a small part and most people in the ship are just regular cruise customers?

Does the cruise make also stops at harbours? how many?

I have never been to a cruise but I have the impression that it's not my thing, I think that the kind of activities available are not really my cup of tea.

I didn't do the prog cruise so I can't speak about that but the Cruise experience for me was about visiting one of the most beautiful countries in the world ( Norway) and the indivdual excursions or 'stop off's'. In transit  you need good entertainment and it was fun to go to a James Bond themed night. The musicians on these cruises are often brilliant so I enjoyed that aspect of it was well. Most people though like to go on a cruise to stuff themselves silly. Regular cruise goers are often not that ..ermm.. slim shall we waySmile

1. i think you meant "say" but i could be wrong.

2. i couldn't go obviously (ADER!!) but as a replacement ill be heading for the Great Wolf Lodge in Williamsburg, VA for the 3rd time in my life. and i shall be showing some classic rock (including prog of course) pride while over there. i won't be here for a few days just to let you know because of it. hell yeah. Cool
