RLC 6 was our 5th Rock Legends Cruise, can not wait for RLC 7. Best. Time. Ever.

This was our first cruise as well as first RLC. What a blast! NAHA knows how to do it right! Practically non stop music from big named artists to fabulous up and coming musicians, this cruise rocks! I got hooked for Sammy but seeing some of the other artists were also highlights! And everybody we met was very cool! Maybe not for VII, but we will be back in the future!
