Carnival started this year with the carnival live concert series on many of their ships with artists including Lady Antebellum, Trace Adkins, Chicago, and of course Styx!
Thus far Carnival Live has been gaining interest rapidly from people looking for a vacation where they can see their favorite band. Some cruise ships already have sold out dates for Lady Antebellum and Trace Adkins. Besides the growing interest from vacationers Carnival reps say that bands are now coming to them and inquiring how they can get a tour date after hearing how well the concerts are going. While we as concertgoers love seeing our favorite artists perform in a small venue the artists also love to play to a more intimate crowd and so it is a win-win for the performs and for the fans.
Prices for the concerts range from $20- $65 depending on concert for general admission. If you are looking for the VIP experience which includes seating in the first couple rows of the ship's theater, and a meet and greet with the performers prior to the show where you also get to take a picture the performers starting at $125-$250! How cool is that?

There are some 4 and 5 day cruises to choose from if you do not want to choose a 6 or 7 day. I will have more articles coming up on my experience on the Carnival Breeze and I will be doing an article on cruising myths vs reality for all of you who have never cruised but hear all these things about cruising that are just not true or maybe you have misconceptions yourself.
