Brian Poole & Chip Hawkes: Silence is Golden, Do You Love Me, Someone Someone
PJ Proby: Hold Me, Somewhere, Mission Bell
And many, many more…
Hosting more than ten international headliners for the first time ever the diverse line-up is a living tribute to the revolutionary music of what was arguably rock’s greatest decade, the 1960s, and who better to curate the massive programme of rock legends than walking, talking, music encyclopedia Glenn A. Baker?
The writer, commentator, ARIA Hall of Fame advisor and three-time BBC ‘Rock Brain of the Universe’ Winner, Glenn A. Baker has just been named Ambassador for Rock the Boat 6. Baker will also play host on the cruise, guiding passengers on a musical experience, while the luxurious Legend of the Seas takes them through the South Pacific.
“I can’t wait to get on board. From a dyed-in-the-wool rock fan’s perspective it really doesn’t get much better than this. Not only are they some of the truly pivotal acts of their era, but they’re also some of the most enduring. Their infectious music and the movement they were at the centre of, shaped the face of popular culture for decades,” he said.
Passengers aboard the music festival on the high seas will also enjoy the tropical beauty of the South Pacific for seven nights, visiting ports of call in Lifou, the paradise capital of sleepy tropical archipelago, The Loyalty Islands, and The Isle Of Pines of New Caledonia, known for its azure lagoons, untouched white sand and underwater wonders which have earned it the nickname ‘l’île la plus proche du paradis’, the closest island to paradise.
In another first, Rock the Boat 6, will take place aboard the latest addition to the Choose Your Cruise fleet, Legend of the Seas. Natural light floods the Vision-Class ship throughout the day, from the soaring, glass walled multi-deck atrium to the two-story main dining room. The luxury liner also offers six outstanding entertainment venues, from the grand and iconic ‘Centrum’ to the laidback relaxation of the ‘Schooner Bar’.
