If the idea of Foreigner, Paul Rodgers, Creedence Clearwater Revisited, Bachman & Turner and 38 Special all performing together on the high seas sounds like the perfect way to kick off 2013, it’s time to book your passage now on ROCK LEGENDS CRUISE II. And the monies raised will go to an important organization: the Native American Heritage Association.
Following last year’s inaugural ROCK LEGENDS CRUISE, the January 2013 ROCK LEGENDS CRUISE II will feature more than 15 bands performing multiple sets, collaborating musically, meeting and greeting and relaxing alongside fans throughout the four-day excursion. The ROCK LEGENDS CRUISE II departs Fort Lauderdale, FL Thursday, January 10 and docks Saturday, January 12 in Labadee, Haiti before returning to Fort Lauderdale Monday, January 14.
The weekend long musical journey will feature three easily accessible performance venues on the ship: The Deck, The Platinum Theater and Studio B/Ice Rink. The line-up as of (3-27) includes: Foreigner, Paul Rodgers, Creedence Clearwater Revisited, Bachman & Turner, 38 Special, The Marshall Tucker Band, Blue Oyster Cult, Foghat, Molly Hatchet, Kentucky Headhunters, Pat Travers, The Artimus Pyle Band, Black Oak Arkansas, Royal Southern Brotherhood, Devon Allman’s Honeytribe, SwampDaWamp and Whiskey Myers, with acts still to be confirmed (exact set times will be released closer to the launch date).
Beyond the musical performances and onboard auction, sailors can also enjoy traditional ship board activities including on-board surfing (thanks to its FlowRider wave generator), a boxing ring, a full-sized volleyball/basketball court, cantilevered whirlpools and variety of gourmet restaurants. In addition, while docked at the private secured Labadee resort–situated on the north coast of Hispaniola which averages a high of 84.9 degrees in January–passengers can enjoy Kayaking, Snorkeling, Parasailing and Wave Runners at the resort’s stunning beaches, surrounded by beautiful mountain slopes and exotic foliage. The Liberty of the Seas from Royal Caribbean is one of the biggest, fastest and most luxurious passenger vessels in service today; it is served by a crew of 1300 on 18 decks.
The Native American Heritage Association has been working on reservations in South Dakota for more than 18 years and is a 4-star charity with www.charitynavigator.org for seven consecutive years. Native American Heritage Association tractor trailers are on the road daily with supplies to the various far flung communities and 94% of the organizations total revenue goes towards program services which provide basic life necessities, including fuel assistance and medical transportation to 90,000 people. Many of these residents face an 80% rate of unemployment; 70% don’t have transportation and many of those who do, don’t have the means to purchase gas. These Lakota Sioux live in abandoned school buses, shacks or government housing with no insulation, some live without indoor plumbing, in homes with dirt floors, no beds or furniture.
