on Freedom OTS on 2/9/2014. Anyone know the details of these type cruises? I can't find any info on the RC website. Do you have to pay to see the acts?

It looks like you might have to book through a specific travel agency (which we cannot mention here) to see the acts on this cruise. Google was helpful.

It's thru AAA. I got their magazine and it is in there. They do not list prices, except for "starting at $1229.00 per person. For more info you have to go there or call. The ad is on their website under travel, but not the prices. It sounds like fun, but if the starting price is $1229 that's just would be for in interior cabin. Maybe I will have to go to one of AAA's offices and find out more. If anyone does, please post it here.

As Lineman has mentioned, starting rates are $1299 based on the article called, " Rockin' the Caribbean Oldies Cruise".
The RCCL web site shows the sailing of Feb 9th, 2014 starting at $669.
To see the acts, you will most likely pay the higher rate in order to gain access to the music...

Names mentioned are The Crystals, Johnny Tillotson, Danny and the Juniors featuring Joe Terry, The Loving Spoonful, Jon "Boswer" Bauman, Leslie Gore, Freddy Boom Boom Cannon, Charley Thomas Drifters, Rocky and the Rollers, Tommy Mara, Broadway sounds of Mary Jo Vitalie, Al Brady, DJ from Little Darlins Rock N Roll Palace.

We did that cruise a couple of years ago, lots of fun, Prom night etc, and oldie dances they actually use the ice rink for the dances and prom night.
We live near the Villages and the AAA travel agency in The Villages developed it. Actually our travel agent friend use to run it each year.
Rocky and The Rollers(Lead Group) are a great oldies, R&R band, and they have guest entertainers as well. I think this year will be more guest entertainers.
One word of advice, lots of people who live in The Villages book this trip every year so they feel, well, special, for lack of a better word, but do not let that change your mind if you want to go, your own group would be nice. It is a lot of fun.
You can google it up(Rocky and the Rollers Oldie cruise) and find past crioses posted videos on youtube.

Glad to find this thread, was just starting to research this myself. The AAA ad has an asterisk that says "price ($1229) per person. Rate includes port charges, EXCLUSIVE ENTERTAINMENT DANCE PARTIES, onboard events and gratuities." I hadn't noticed that before, it's not really in ALL CAPS; as a single cruiser that tells me "not going" -- probably $2500 for a single, could go on more than one cruise for that price! Oh well, live and learn!
