Salty Dog Cruise

Post by darlenet. » Tue Mar 17, 2015 4:14 pm

Hi Guys!

I know some folks were curious about the cruise , and I must say it was such a good time. Start saving now, they have a payment plan. Start searching for cheap flights. You sure could save money if you were good at smuggling.

It was so fun to travel with like minded folks who love live music. The Flogging Molly family are so much fun. The bands played multiple sets. For example, Frank played two great main shows. Trust me, the folks we dragged in, are now convinced. And, the new album title "leaked." Can't wait for the release of "Giant International Fuck Tower". There was a late little atrium show. Frank generously agreed to play requests in exchange for signing up on the bone marrow donor registry. So excited to hear Vital Signs live (I thought I'd be dead before hearing it live). Also loved hearing Worse Things Happen at Sea at the exact time that ship was lurching a bit. There was also a nice late night show in a drained hot tub. This yielded a lovely Weakerthans cover set that he had promised someone. We also heard Dammit, Linoleum, Delilah, Thunder Road, someone to Love, Pancho and Lefty. Jay insistently led an American Pie singalong, resulting in Frank in fetal position. Being there with friends you see at shows all year on the front of a freaking boat was magical

Though, I generally don't comment about someone's personal life, I must say that Frank's lady is just lovely. As beautiful inside as out. She is kind, funny, and handles concerts from barricade just fine. They are good together.

As far as a request for a tour diary, though I would love to see it, I have to quote a beans on Toast lyric, "No, Charlie, no!"

Hope to sail with you next year...... darlene

Yep, you are really selling this to me, deeply envious. But joking aside it seems to me as if they had about as much fun as the fans, which is pretty much the evidence that the cruise was a smash hit.
I have started to play a game called 'What's Frank up to today?', yes it makes my life seem very dull, but it's fun to see others having fun....Hope that doesn't sound creepy!

The stars have aligned and I am planning to do this cruise next year...yippee! Any advice on picking a stateroom? I'll probably go with the cheapest option (interior stateroom), but just wanted to check with people who went this year before I book.

You won't regret it!!!!

The first thing is to join this Facebook group full of the best people I've ever met. All of your questions will be answered. And I'm sure there are people you know from FT shows.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/floggin ... shipmates/

This year alcohol is inclusive! This is a massive thing for some people. Last year we had a cabin with a big window which definitely added space, but I think I am going with the cheapest cabin (inside stateroom) this year, as I was hardly ever in it! Literally in it 3-4 hours for sleep, otherwise on deck or off ship or at shows. It's easy to book, then to add people, and there is also a matching service. For me last year, with a larger cabin with 4 people, my payments were $88 per month ending in December.

Also, this year, there is a pre-cruise event in Miami on St. Patrick's Day. Sounds interesting.

The bands were great, and we were able to suggest some for this year. So many people have already booked without even seeing the band list. It was just that awesome!

Thanks for the info! I never had any doubt that it would be worth it, but it was just too hard to swing this year with my work schedule and there was also a personal issue that interfered. Anyway, stoked to be part of the fun next year, especially since I now know a few more people who will be there. I was in that Facebook group for a while when I thought I might go, but left it when I knew I couldn't because I didn't want to get too sad.

I doubt I'll make it for the St. Patrick's Day show, but I'm excited that I can hang around Miami (a city I've never explored) a few days afterward because it'll be spring break!

I think you've answered my only other question, which is whether you have to know exactly who's sharing your room when you start paying. I have no doubt I'll manage to recruit at least one friend, but I saw something about a $100 name change. I hope that just means if the lead person has to transfer it to someone else...

We've got you covered for a few nights on Florida's gorgeous Gulf Coast! Siesta Key beach named #1 beach by trip advisor & Dr Beach, you'll have a base tan from the cruise!

And don't worry, my family is used to me bringing home people I've met on the internet! :wink:

Well I have already started working on my hubby. He is worried about how hard it would be for me on a ship as I have mobility problems. Personally I just want to go, whatever! But might have to settle with hiring a pedals, an iPod and have a Briney Birch float around.

Sarah I'm pretty sure I saw disabled cabins marked on the ship plans and I knw there are elevators on bord.... the dificutly might be getting on and off for shore excusions as I'm pretty sure the private island part is accesable by tender (a small boat) only.

you could ask the cruise line
