Could this be the official Stuck in the '80s trip for 2016? We'll see.
Themed cruises featuring bands from the '80s aren't new, but there's a new one that has just been announced that will blow your mind.
The '80s Cruise, a 7-day cruise to the Caribbean, will be hosted by original MTV veejays Nina Blackwood, Mark Goodman and Alan Hunter and feature music performances by Huey Lewis and the News, Richard Marx, Starship, Kool & The Gang, Modern English, Naked Eyes, Wang Chung and more.
And that's just the start. The TVs in each cabin will feature 24/7 '80s era programming, showing only the best TV shows and movies from the '80s. There will be '80s arcades, featuring only the coolest games from our decade. And each night is a theme night, including a Pajama Jam, Neon Beach Party, '80s Prom, '80s Movie Costume Party and more.
The ship for this '80s adventure is the Holland American Eurodam, which is a high-end brand of cruise ships. And with all the '80s activities, you probably don't care as much about where the ship is going, but here's the itinerary anyway. After leaving Fort Lauderdale, the ship visits Turks & Caicos, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the Bahamas. I can vouch personally that those are fantastic places to visit.
Here's some fine print. The trip isn't until 2016, giving you plenty of time to plan and save up. The dates are Feb. 28 through March 6, 2016. It's not the cheapest cruise you'll find; rates start at $1,700 per person based on double occupancy cabins. However, given Holland America's level of luxury and the incredible amount of entertainment, I'd say it's about right. And there are payment plans available as well. -- Steve Spears, 10/25/2014, Tampa Bay Times
