I'd rather have the flu

While I've never had any interest in taking a cruise, I really have nothing bad to say about the Dave Matthews Band. In fact, I have nothing to say about them. I neither like nore dislike their music, it's just out there. But I was looking to see if Mike Doughty had any concert dates and I see he's booked on the Dave Matthews cruise ship:
The fun begins the minute we leave port, kicking off the Dave Matthews & Friends Caribbean Cruise Getaway with a Welcome Party on the pool deck with music and a complimentary open bar. From there, you’ll probably want to join us for a memorable dining experience before you begin to enjoy performances by some of our many featured Artists. From headliners in the Showroom to intimate Artist performances poolside, there will be music everywhere. After midnight, parties heat up in each venue culminating in a non-stop dance party. Of course, there are other choices as well, from Casino action to an Adult Comedy Showcase or maybe an impromptu performance in the Schooner Piano Bar by one of our star Artists.

Check out the artists. Guess the coast guard won't have any problem finding these two ships. Just look for the giant clouds of pot smoke. Even the dolphins will get a contact high from following. I could see something like this being fun, except for the fans. For as innocuous as the Dave Matthews music is, the fans are a bit crazed. And the ones who would pay a minimum of $1200 just to be in close proximity to a musician are not stable human beings.

In case you were wondering, Dave & The Matthews will not be on the boat:
Will Dave Matthews & Friends be traveling and/or performing on the ships?No, Dave Matthews & Friends will be performing on the secret island near Nassau, Bahamas only.

Oh boy, being on a boat with a bunch of unwashed hippie zealots.

Sounds a bit like the Mayflower.
