This happened last year too, and, while not as progressive as prog nation or Cruise to the Edge, still has its fair share of prog bands.  It's supposedly modelled on the 1970 Isle of Wight Festival, how I don't know


Among the artists are Moody Blues Carl Palmer, Zombies, Strawbs (who will also be on Cruise to the Edge), Glass Hammer

I find these cruises of older bands (or bands with older audiences)  an interesting and entirely logical phenomena given the demographic having more income and more inclined towards cruising than younger less well heeled listeners.  However, although I am certainly in that demographic, I remain uninterested in cruises, even ones with good music.  I'm too afraid of norovirus or just plain seasickness, plus being stuck on a boat with limited options except those available on the boat  Sleepy

And of course you prefer to cruise with Marjana from iamthemornig much more than to cruise with Mr Palmer.

Carl Palmer mentioned this last night on Planet Rock radio. Apparently he will have an exhibition of his 'art' on the cruise something he has got into in recent years. I didn't really cattch exactly what this is although I assume its pictures.

BTW he also confirmed ELP is no more and that it was his decision
