    Thing is, $800 is pretty sweet for 4 days of hotel, concerts, and 24 hour food (much of which is pretty fancy and good. You can really get your money's worth of steak and lobsters on these things). Most cost prohibitive thing for me would be getting to Miami.

    I am seriously considering this, I've been on a bunch of cruises but never a concert cruise.

    Booze is never included. Only coffee, tea, milk, juice, etc.

    Soda is extra too. They usually have an all you can drink option you buy at an extra charge.

    As for Steak and Lobster. I wouldn't count on it.

    It's usually only available at certain times and certain dinner services or at the up charge restaurants on board.

    Also, don't forget, they add a daily tip for the crew (cooks, servers, etc.) to your credit card. It's usually a pre established amount in the fine print.

    I like the idea, but hate cruises!

    But yeah, my one and only experience of a cruise, whilst the food is good enough it isn't filet mignon and lobster every meal. It is pretty much Vegas buffet style food-which ranges from poor to excellent.
    The devil is in the small print of what 'all inclusive' means. Sometimes it may mean 2 free drinks per day, others none. Also, the tip, tip, tip aspect is common. You are tipping for refills, tipping for room cleaning, tipping the guy at the buffet. So really make sure what you are and are not getting. Nothing disappoints more in life than finding 'all inclusive' doesn't include cocktails, spirits, most beers.

    Yes, you will definitely have to pay for booze and soda. From the cruise website:

    WHAT’S INCLUDED

    Outdoor weezer sail away show on the Lido Deck
    Indoor weezer main lounge show
    Photo with weezer
    Weezer Q&A on the Lido Deck
    General admission to shows from the rest of the lineup
    Roundtrip cruise from Miami to Cozumel
    Cabin for 4 nights
    All food (restaurants & 24 hour room service)
    All non-alcoholic / non-carbonated drinks
    All on board events for all 4 days & nights

    I googled, and it looks like the standard Carnival cruise charges about $2 for soda and $5-10 for alcoholic beverages. Lemonade, ice tea, etc, are included.

    The tipping fee is $40 - so $10 a day - and that's all they'll get out of my tight English arse.

    They are playing 3 shows right? I would expect their entire career. They say nothing about this having anything to do with memories tour or blue/pinkerton. I'm sure you will hear plenty of songs from those albums though.

    If it were open bar I'm sure some would try to get their $799 in value just in booze over the 3 days.

    That and it may turn the cruise into an unruly event.

    Never bother adding a tip to the bill when you buy booze or anything extra on the ship. I've talked to employees on many different ships and they don't get a piece of that. The cruise takes it and only splits the $10 a day evenly among all the cruise members.

    The only way they get bonuses is from comment cards that the passengers fill out praising the staff.

    I usually fill out as many cards as possible because those poor people bust their asses on those ships.

    So no solo Rivers show, or anything that's announced in advance?

    I'm actually kinda surprised KI$$/Gene Simmons haven't done this idea. They did do the fan conventions acorss the country in the mid 90's.

    Most cruises have a pretty strict policy against this clearly on their websites. Doesn't mean you can't sneak it on of course.

    You can do that. But the staff can confiscate any alcohol found in a cabin or on a person, so ensure it is well hidden.
    Even so, you don't want to be walking 15 minutes to your cabin every time you fancy some lubricant.

    When they turn this in to a 10-14 day Mediterranean Cruise I will sign up!

    I've never heard of anyone ever getting their alcohol taken. We usually just put a bottle or town in our bag and don't worry about it.

    We usually just fill a water bottle and that will last us a good minute and then we hit the bar and spend less money.

    My slot is 7/25/11 at 12:30 PM ET. Which is 6:30 am in Honolulu. Time to figure out if I really want to go to this, and if so, set an alarm clock.

    Weird how they have these staggered slot times.... I got 4:30 PM ET on Monday. I guess that gives me more time to convince some friends to go.

    I saw footage of a Heavy Metal Mediterranean cruise and it looked like such a great time, even not being a metal fan. But booze not being included? If it was a week long cruise and drinks are say 8 bucks, you are spending an extra 50 bucks a day probably. Plus tips.

    From the mentions above, the sneak in process sounds like a royal pain in the ass. I'd rather pay to relax and get drinks when I want, it just sucks that it's not like at an all inclusive resort.
