Wed, 18 Mar 2015 16:12:37
For everyone that was a part of the love generation—and for those who always wished they were— comes a vacation experience that is alive with the spirit, the music and the memories of the 1960s.
The Flower Power Cruise will sail for five sun-soaked Caribbean days and nights of peace and music aboard the Celebrity Constellation departing February 29, 2016, from Ft. Lauderdale with stops in Cozumel, Mexico and Key West before returning on March 5.
Along for the psychedelic journey will be some of the greatest singers and musicians who built the soundtrack to the '60s, including Blood, Sweat & Tears featuring Bo Bice, Felix Cavaliere's Rascals, Micky Dolenz, who is The Monkees Lead Singer (and cruise host!), The Grass Roots, The Guess Who, Herman's Hermits starring Peter Noone, Jefferson Starship, Mark Lindsay, the former lead singer of Paul Revere & the Raiders, The Turtles featuring Flo & Eddie, and more to be announced in the coming weeks. The Flower Power Cruise is the newest charter in the StarVista LIVE fleet of cruises.
In just five years, StarVista LIVE has redefined the cruise vacation experience with their sold-out Malt Shop Memories Cruise, Soul Train Cruise and Country Music Cruise.
"What I experienced in the '60s still shapes the way I think and live to this day," says Mark Volman, the Flo of The Turtles featuring Flo and Eddie, said. "But I miss being surrounded by the people and the movement – there was nothing like it. Bringing the music and the culture and the feel of that decade together with the people who love it most is going to be one wild ride."
"There is no generation that is as closely tied to an era than the children of the '60s," said Executive Producer Alan Rubens. "Their connection to the culture, the music and each other runs deep – bringing them together to revel in the greatest moments of the decade will create a whole new bond for everyone there."
Over 20 live performances will highlight the five night cruise, along with special events that bring guests side by side with the superstars of the ‘60s for meet and greets, panel discussions, cooking demonstrations, wine tasting, live retro game shows, groovy trivia contests and a Make Love Not War vow renewal ceremony. Special themed nights including a Black Light Ball, Psychedelic ‘60s Dance Party, Bell Bottom Blast will complete the vibe of this cruise.
Cabin prices begin at just $1299 per person (based on double occupancy) and include admission to all shows, meals and events. For further information on The Flower Power Cruise, please call 844.700.3569 or visit FlowerPowerCruise.com.
