Yes Rhaposody has become a haven for music enthusiasts around Oct-Nov each year now. These are co-charters operated by the events organisers and RC. From the cruise side of things, they are just like regular cruises with pretty much all the same things, just that the event operators arrange pretty much all of the entertainment, including the nightly shows.
The cruises typically go for up to 7 nights and go to places like New Caledonia, or just out into the ocean and back to Syndey. They are significantly more expensive than a regular cruise, but you are getting top line artists day & night and unrivalled access to them during the cruise. Imagine just bumping into and sitting down and having a drink by the pool with a favourite entertainer.
We have been on Cruisin' Country 1 (2011) & 2 (2012) and had fantastic times. There are rock&roll cruises & 70's cruises etc - they are booked thru designated TA's.
