I came across this and am amazed.

This cruise features a lot of artists. It was Los Lobos that caught my attention, but Steve Earl, Dave Alvin etc. I would love to go.

I was hired to play on a cruise like that (twice) except it was all 50s/DooWop artists.   The one I performed on was fantastic, highly recommend checking this kind of cruise out.

I think jazz cruises started the whole thing off, in the 70s or maybe even a bit earlier. 

This upcoming one is stuffed with brilliant players;

The rock legends cruise:

There's a metal one and a Monsters Of Rock one too, but they haven't announced the line ups yet.

This one is full of artists I'm not familiar with - Davey Suicide?  ffs!

Reckon I'd be very glad to disembark at the end, whatever the music.....[laugh]

I’ve seen Los Lobos. They were damn good. The covered Bertha when I saw them.

Pretty cool, but I just can't stomach Lucinda.

I can’t stand Lucinda either, but I have seen her twice though. Her music just grated on me now. The second time I was really high on edibles, and that made it more tolerable.

You ever listen to The Latin Playboys? Its a L L side project. They only put out two albums. The first one is killer. 

David & Louie: Definitely. Forever 'Nightshade Mary' is a favourite. Some of that was used in the 'Desperado' Movie too. 

Also 'Los Super 7' were great collaborations with Calexico & Texas Tornados guys. I have the 1st two albums.

Yep that was were I found out about the Latin Playboys. I have both of their albums. I love the song Mira. Mira in Spanish means "Look". The premise of the song is they are at Disneyland/World/Universe/Galaxy, what ever its called now, and the one guy keeps saying "Mira Mira Dumbo", as the they must have just seen someone in a Dumbo The Heffalump costume, and they are impressed by that fact.
