From Joanie Madden

Hello Folks!

I’m thrilled to announce that the booking has begun for my 2nd annual Folk ‘n Irish Cruise onboard the incredible Norwegian Epic that departs out of Miami, Florida on February 2nd to February 9th, 2013 with stops to the Eastern Caribbean ports of St. Thomas, St. Maarten and Nassau in the Bahamas.

Last January, I embarked on running my first Irish cruise to the Carribbean. It was an absolutely overwhelming success with almost 600 Celtic music fans from around the world joining us for an amazing week on the high seas. The wonderful group of fun-loving passengers and a line up of some of the greatest talent to be found anywhere on the planet, made for an amazing and memorable week of music, song, dance and craic!

I have assembled an array of talent with over 50 entertainers from Ireland, Scotland, the United States and Canada who will be covering the full spectrum of folk and traditional music, song and step dance. There is literally something for everyone from the nightly concerts and jam sessions to impromptu sing songs and revelry. To get everyone moving and work off the gourmet delicacies we will all be enjoying with the freestyle dining on board the Epic, we will have daily set dancing, ceili dancing, old time waltzes and jives with lessons to make sure you join in the fun! Due to popular demand, we are also arranging golf outings on some of the majestic islands!

Once again, I’m very proud of the lineup I have arranged for your listening pleasure and can assure you that everyone is artistically phenomenal in their individual fields and a joy to be around – which all adds up to making the journey that more enjoyable!
