I hope the first part of 2012 has been going great for you.
Our cruise team and I have spent the last couple months working our tails off to make sure that the latter part of your 2012 is nothing short of spectacular... especially that one week in particular, September 26th through October 3rd, when we will be cruising together in Europe!!
It will be here before you know it and I can't wait. The Royal Caribbean Serenade Of The Seas (our home for seven days) will be ready to greet us in picturesque Barcelona, Spain, as we embark on a week of exotic ports-of-call, fantastic food and drink and once-in-a-lifetime musical experiences, exploring Europe together for the very first time. Thank you again for being a part of what promises to be an unforgettable week!!
Plus, we have added a few other stellar artists to our already wonderful line up: the incomparable Miss PATTI AUSTIN and the man who's responsible for more than 40 #1 smooth jazz hits, guitarist PAUL BROWN. Someone new to our family, who I can't wait to introduce you to, singer/guitarist RAUL MIDON... wait til you hear what this guy can do. Returning this year from being a huge surprise hit in Alaska are JIM CARUSO and BILLY STRITCH who will reprise their late-night "anything-can-happen-and-probably-will" cabaret show, "CAST PARTY".
In the span of one week on this cruise you will see all the artists above plus our awesome headliners: BRIAN CULBERTSON, super group FOURPLAY (BOB JAMES, NATHAN EAST, CHUCK LOEB and HARVEY MASON), NORMAN BROWN, RICK BRAUN, JONATHAN BUTLER, MICHAEL BOLTON, MARC ANTOINE, MICHAEL LINGTON and a TON more surprises. Needless to say, the ship will be filled with music!
And FILLED as well with stories and and new memories you'll be making as you visit places like Florence, Rome and Naples, Italy; Nice and Toulon, France, and of course, our host city, Barcelona. These are not your ordinary ports, let me tell you. Amazing culture can be found in every nook and cranny in these historic and gorgeous cities.
As our cruise nears, I will be in regular contact, keeping you posted on details so you can plan your trip. In the meantime, I'd like to invite you to join our 2012 Europe cruise page on FACEBOOK - all you have to do is 'like us'! (CLICK HERE TO TAKE YOU RIGHT TO THE PAGE). It's a great way to connect with other cruisers and keep abreast of everything going on as September nears! And finally, we are in full planning mode for our follow-up cruise in 2013 - this one will take us to GREECE for the first time, beginning and ending in Rome, Italy, with stops in the beautiful island of SICILY, ATHENS and MYKONOS, Greece, and the Amalfi Coast town of SORRENTO with Mr. Michael McDonald and a host of your other favorite artists on board. If you'd like to learn more about 2013 or book with us, please visit our site:www.davekozcruise.com. Cabins are selling fast and of course, I'd love you to be a part of EVERY cruise we do! :)
Again, my sincere thanks to you for entrusting us with your vacation plans and for choosing the Dave Koz Cruise in Europe. Seeing this wonderful world together through music - that's what it's all about.
With much love and gratitude, always.
