Just returned from Stomptime’s first ever Ragtime/blues/jazz cruise. (Caribbean Miami to Miami). This was a fantastic cruise with quality talent. The musical lead was Brian Holland. Included were Stephanie Trick, Paolo Alderighi, Sonny Leyland, Jeff Barnhart, Fredrick Hodges (all piano), horns by Baker, Caparone, bass by Pikal and Rocha, drums by Danny Coots and others. Annie Sellick provided female vocals. There were two to four hours of music each evening as well as daytime sea day q&a sessions with the performers. At least one cocktail reception for all. Music was performed in sea lounge as private party. Celebrity provided great support and the sound techs were great. A wonderful experience. The music was a mix of ragtime/early jazz, blues and traditional jazz. The folks are planning to do one again, this time in Alaska on the Millenium. (Tentatively June 2020). We would encourage you to check it out if you’re a jazz buff.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Veranda
Cabin 2B 6002
Cabin adequate. Didn’t spend much time in it. Verandah big enough to have a meal on.
