Requesting Joanie Madden Cruise Info

Requesting Joanie Madden Cruise Info

I’m sure that some thesession folks have been passengers on one of Joanie’s cruises. The info from the cruise website has been helpful, but there’s nothing like getting feedback from people in my own position. How was your experience? What is there to do during the day if you don’t go ashore? In particular, although I am better at listening than playing I am fated to enjoy playing more than listening, so any comments regarding open sessions would be greatly appreciated.
(And if Joanie is reading this, thanks for calling me out at the Cleveland festival. You’re the greatest!)

Second hand from a couple I met “It was awesome” they said they’ve been going every year for the last 4-5. I think they said they didn’t go ashore much - didn’t think it was worth it for the short amount of time the ship is anchored.
I worked a cruise as a ‘ship’s band’ a long time ago for six weeks. We spent as much time ashore as possible for sanity sake.
