Not all areas on Decks 11 & 12 allow smoking – ONLY the STARBOARD side. Please watch for and respect the signs. – See Smoking Policy
BE NICE to everyone – staff, crew, bands, each other!
You may not hold chairs on the pool deck for extended periods of time – if you do, your belongings MAY be removed.
Alhambra Theatre, Studio B and Pyramid Lounge will close between shows. Don’t bother forming long lines, just wait for the doors to open and walk in. There is plenty of seating and not a bad view in the house!
Be respectful of the artists when they are out and about onboard the ship between performances. This is a working vacation for them and if they are constantly mobbed, they may run away and hide in their cabins … and nobody wants that!
PLEASE keep in mind that we cruise in the “ISH” time zone … meaning if the schedule shows a band starting in the Theatre at 8:00 pm … we really mean it will be starting at 8:00-ish… with all the of the bands and the amount of equipment that needs to be moved and set up, sometimes we get a little behind schedule. Just relax and go grab another drink, we’ll get things started as soon as possible. Getting upset and having a hissy fit that we didn’t start at the stroke of 8:00 pm is not going to get things started any sooner. All it’s going to do is raise your blood pressure and ruin your day.
This was our first RLC, we REALLY wanted to do this one because of Uriah Heep and The Circle. The fact that Steppenwolf, Blue Oyster Cult, and Bad Company were on it also just sweetened the pot. It was our first time seeing Todd Rundgren, Gary Hoey, Quiet Riot, Artimus Pyle and Elvin Bishop, who were all great! We caught parts of some of the other bands and unfortunately some not at all. We didn’t leave the ship at all because there just too much GREAT music!
The artist we met were all very nice. Loved the Meet and Greets. And now we have new bands to follow.
My only complaints ( and they wouldn’t stop my husband and I from returning) were the saving of the chairs with towels, and the staff in the buffet room seemed ill equipped to handle the crowds, which were predictable. Also, I thought the buffet room should have had longer daytime hours, that would have helped with tables not available. But we weren’t there for the food or the destination. We were there for the non stop music. Gary Hoey and the All Star Jam was the best surprise, we didn’t move for 3 hours, didn’t want to miss a second of that great show. Gary was a terrific host.
We will be back! Oh and fun swag too!
First time on RLC cruise and it was, by far, one of the best damn times I’ve ever had in my life! Loved every band we saw, especially Sammy, Bad Company and Artimus Pyle! Had already booked for VII before we even went on this one and won’t be giving up my reservation for anything! I do agree with another reviewer that the chair reserving/holding on the deck needs to be addressed and the smoking everywhere on deck 11 was a little much. Thank you NAHA for nailing it for us true rockers!!
