Well, im back from shooting my second music cruise. This one was a lot different than the first and I have to say, I’m glad to be back. The bands were a bit more sterile, the fans more domestic and all in all, not a bad gig, just not a great one. Granted, being in the Caribbean in the winter isn’t bad, I’m just glad to be back for the holidays.
Initially, here are my observations for this cruise…
Music cruises should only take place when the entire boat is part of the music event, not just half. It’s hard to really get down when you have old folks on their rascal running you over.
4 people to a cruise room is 2 too many, even with a balcony.
Italians smoke a lot, especially on an Italian boat.
Costa Maya is reminiscent of an internment camp, just painted brighter colors with a swim up bar.
Don’t underestimate the photo crew, even rock stars can take a few pointers from us on how to party.
That’s all for now.
