Cruise with your favorite musician! Sixthman is an Atlanta company that sets up cruises that headline musical stars. Today, for example, "tickets/fares" go on sale for the first Cayamo "song cruise" with Lyle Lovett and Emmylou Harris, which will set sail Feb. 4 through Feb. 10, 2008 on the Carnival Victory. Prices start at $747 per person for a double interior room. As with any cruise, add about 30 to 55 percent for additional costs, such as on-board alcoholic drinks, taxes, and port charges. Other upcoming cruises will feature the rock and pop acts Ben Folds, John Mayer, and Barenaked Ladies. Indie- and retro-rock fans will want to consider a trip on the The Rock Boat, which will depart Jan. 19, 2008, for a five-day festival at sea, with headliners Sister Hazel, Aslyn, and Toad The Wet Sprocket. Sixthman's website offers a list of upcoming music cruises.
