Rock Legends Cruise 3 Sells Out

by Isaac Rodriguez

For those of you that will literally " miss the boat" for this amazing fun cruise, you can only hope to book early for 2016, or be placed on a waiting list and hope that you are lucky. For those of us that purchased tickets, Congratulations!!!! Avery wise choice.This cruise sets sail from Ft. Lauderdale, Fl. on Royal Caribbean's Liberty of the Seas. The dates are February 19 thru 23, 2015. Featured on this cruise are 24 great artists. I will mention just a few which are The Doobie Brothers, Alice Cooper, Paul Rodgers, Don Felder, WAR, The Marshall Tucker Band, and The Outlaws. For more information go to

This event can be described as a Woostock on the high seas. Its four days of fun and music, nothing but fun and music, and I think that's wonderful. Here are a few pictures of the previous cruise last year of artist that are returning.  Paul Rodgers

Doug Gray of The Marshall Tucker Band
Bobby Ingram of Molly Hatchet
This cruise has three different venues playing just about all the time from about 11:00 am in the morning up to pass midnight and beyond. One of the featured events on this cruise is The Marshall Tucker Band jam session. This takes place one evening it starts about 11:00pm when The Marshall Tucker Band starts playing, then artists from different groups join in and jam with the band. On the last cruise this session lasted until about 3:30 am. It was awesome!!!!

Here are some more pictures of artists that are returning to the cruise:
Devon Allman on the pool deck stage
Tony Bullard of the Blue Lords
The last night of cruise ended with another impromptu jam session with Gig Michaels and Swampdawamp being joined in by various artist. If I remember correctly roughly about 2:00am they announced the ship's Captain said to stop playing or they would cut off the power to the stage. What a way to end this phenomenal cruise. Here is a picture of Gig
Aside from this being a fabulous cruise filled with great music, and great talent, actually the most important part is that it is a charitable event. This cruise is sponsored by NAHA.  The Native American Heritage Association is a charitable non profit organization dedicated to helping Native American families in need living on the reservation of South Dakota. For more information go to

This is a benefit cruise for this great organization. As you can probably tell, I am personally a huge fan of this cruise. In fact after writing this article, I just want to pack my bags, head out to the port and sail away.
