A Quick Soul Train Cruise Lookback - San Diego Oct 2013

A Quick Soul Train Cruise Lookback - San Diego Oct 2013 magazine cover

This was the 2nd annual Soul Train Cruise to set sail, this time from San Diego. It was incredible value for money, not only to travel to the Mexican Riviera & stop off in Puerta Vallarta & Cabo San Lucas, but to see the legendary Earth, Wind & Fire, Gladys Knight, The Whispers, Jeffrey Osborne, Billy Paul, The Ohio Players, Con Funk Shon, Lakeside, The Bar Kays, Dazz Band, Regina Belle, Freddie Jackson, Jonathan Butler, Jennifer Holiday & Joey Diggs all hosted by Tony Cornelius.

 

There were 37 concerts over 7 days with the chance to meet these legends while dining in the restaurant, sitting by the pool, or having a drink at one of the many bars on board the Holland America Westerdam Cruise ship.

 

The food was outstanding, the ship was first class & the entertainment was better than having your own private party with 150 of your friends....

 

I highly recommend The Soul Train Cruise.....next one leaving March 2014 from Miami :)

Probably best to start off small and build your way up.  Might I suggest the Gosport Ferry and an iPod.

Done a few cruises & always enjoyed them.

Didn't realise a 'Soul Train cruise' was departing from Miami in March as it does seem interesting (do you know which acts will be on-board when you need to make your booking ?).

..................... ANYWAY .............. We've already booked a cruise in January from Florida to the Bahamas. 

Anyone know of any decent record shops or clubs (that feature soul / reggae bands) in Funky Nassau ??

Hi Jazzy Brit. We were with you on the soul train cruise (and the first one out of Fort Lauderdale in Feb 13) and agree that it was the best holiday ever. Still buzzin about it 6 weeks later.

BTW, after the chat we had about The Exciters I downloaded 'Reaching For The Best'. What a great track.
