Does anyone know of any cruises with bands from the late 60s to early 70s? We went on one through Clear Channel Cruises featuring Three Dog Night, The Association, Gary Lewis and the Playboys and Paul Revere and the Raiders and would love to do something like this again.

We're going on a "Malt Shop" cruise the end of October 2011 sponsered by Jazz Cruises 1-877-700-6258. Pretty pricey, but sounds like lots of fun. 4 nites on Carnivals Inspiration out of Tampa, Fl. Entertainers are Chubby Checker, The Beach Boys, Little Anthony, Lou Christie just to name a few.
This is probably more 50's & 60's if you're interested.

If it's a little Beach Music you're after, check out www.TheEmbersBand.net as they are planning their 3rd Annual cruise in late February......

Hi Everyone, I'm thinking on going on the 01/21/2012 --01/28/2012 cruise on the GRAND PRINCESS. A month ago saw 3 of the Monkees in concert. This week I saw the "HAPPY TOGHETHER" concert. Talked to my agent. She says for me to put down my deposit when I'm on the CORAL PRINCESS. I'm a platinum captain circle member. PARIDE55

FYI... Not sure who you booked through, but just booking a room on the Grand Princess for this cruise doesn't get you the entertainment. Princess isn't putting on the oldies cruise. You must book though Concerts at Sea to get the entertainment package. Some TA's may work with them for you, but you can also book direct with them. Do a search for Concerts At Sea to get their website. I'd put it here but we're not supposed to put links on here, I guess.

A 60s - 70s music-themed cruise would be fun. Those were the years I was really into music as a kid and teenager. So, how about a little music trivia?

Which group did the song, In-a-gadda-da-vida? AND tell us one or two things that were really unique about that song at the time?

Who sang, "The Crystal Ship"? Hint: same group that did: "Light My Fire."
What was the name of the lead singer of that group?

Nancy Sinatra put out several hit songs with a man named Lee Hazelwood. One of those was "Jackson." Name two others.

The next one goes wa-a-a-ay back, at least for me. Who sang the song, Running Bear? And, what was that song about?

Who had the hit song, "Blue Velvet"?

Who did...
World Without Love?
Painted Black? (They also did Satisfaction)
My Back Pages (Hint: American group; also did Eight Miles High)
This Diamond Ring (and who is the lead singer's father)?
And the Beat Goes On?
We Gotta Get Outa This Place (hint: also did House of the Rising Sun)
