My husband and I sailed a few years ago on golden and grand princess. We admired the art by Michael Godard shown on board but never bought. I wish we had. There are certain pieces sold on board that cannot be bought on land. The piece we loved was called cruise martini. Has anyone heard of it? Own one/ want to sell?? :p

I saw a bunch of his stuff in Vegas the last time I was there, actually. It was just like a trip back to the 80s!

We bought two of his pieces in April on our cruise. We too love his art, and I had looked on e-bay over Christmas but could not find anything I could afford! He also has a great website. Not familiar with the piece you are speaking of, but maybe ask someone from an upcoming cruise (go to the roll-calls section) to take a peek and see if they still have it.

yes that is the piece. We saw many of his pieces in Vegas and in Atlantic City, but cruise martini can only be bought onboard. Guess I'll have to book another cruise!!;) Thanks for the help!!

As a matter of interest I have just bought a Goddard on Dawn Princess entitled Bottoms Up. When I went in the Wyland gallery on Pier 39 I saw another Goddard which I fell in love with. Now I'm waiting for them both to be delivered. While I was in the Wyland gallery they told me that MTV have just done a deal with Goddard to purchase the rights to some of his characters and use them in a new cartoon! Thus making our pictures even more collectible (as well as enjoyable).

My husband and I bought Cruise Martini in January 2005 while we were on the Star Princess. It is a Godard original, and I don't believe that any reproductions were ever made. We might be willing to sell the piece and if you are interested, please e-mail us at ICCruisers@verizon.net. Harriet

to each his own... Goddard has a large presence in the Princess Art gallery. There are always a lot of his pieces on display/up for auction.

If you do a search for him on eBay, you can find some prints and posters for sale. Not the one OP is looking for, but you can find some of his artwork in smaller sizes.

We have an "Oh My Goddard" Gallery here in Key West. Cruise Martini was a piece commissioned by Princess to be sold only on Princess ships and it is sold out. The only way to get one is through resale/ebay, etc.

Me sentiments, exactly. I actually think his work is really fun, and would love to have a few small pieces for a stairwell or hallway or something, but a 24 x 36 just wouldn't do it in our house.

Marlin - My thoughts exactly.... That original would have cost thousand's! (does Princess offer originals, or just embelished?)

In general, Princess does offer originals. I have been on cruises where someone has purchased works over $50,000. From my understanding...orginals will not be numbered.

Princess does offer originals. When we bought the piece, the Art Director on the Star Princess told us that Godard had been on one of Princess's Art Connoisseur voyages and had painted this piece while he was on the cruise. And yes, we paid a lot more for this than one of his embellished editions.

Princess told me that the originals aren't numbered and usually Godard sells 100 numbered copies and once they sell out there aren't anymore. Cruise martini may have been an exception with only one made. It's a nice piece but just a bit out of my price range..:)

We sold via E-bay "Shootin' the Wad". We had gotten it by mistake from Princess, tried to send it back and to make a long story short, sold it after we kept it in the box for a year. It was really too big for our house and we used the money toward our next cruise so Princess really wasn't out anything:D
My husband bought "The Bar Fly" on our last Princess cruise and it is hanging
near our pool table.

We love Michael Godard. We have 11 pieces of his art in our home. We purchased them all on Princess cruises. They are great conversation pieces. We really enjoy them and hope to purchase more on our next cruise!

We have over 10 of his pieces in our home. I'm proud to say he has personally drawn a picture and hand signed the backs of all of our art. We have a local gallery that brings him in 2X/year and when he comes is his wife Ellie has personally taken us around to the art and explained the little things he has hidden in the art. (dates, special names ect...)

For the level artist he is he is probably the most down to earth person I have ever met.

They are just really nice people.
