What Passengers Think

We have been on RLC since day 1, we were a little skeptical about doing this, we had never cruised before! We met friends that are now like family, the music has always been over the top! We have never had a bad experience, this is just beautifully done! We will be going as long as you will be doing this cruise!!!

Once again NAHA put on an awesome time. Improved deck stage , fantastic line up, saw more shows compared to cruises 2 and 3 and even had some nice sit down dinners in the dining room with the strategic scheduling. If you like classic rock music and want to see lots of it with friendly people this is the cruise to be on. It is also for a great cause!
