Grand Ole Opry cruise features a number of classic country stars

It is no secret among my close friends that I am a country music fan. I love all that mooning and crooning. So when I hear about a country music cruise I am excited.

Here’s the scoop:

The Grand Olee Opry Country Classics Cruise sails Jan. 30 – Feb. 6, 2011. With a recently updated itinerary, the music-filled adventure will now take guests to the Eastern Caribbean aboard Royal Caribbean’s Freedom of the Seas.

Grand Ole Opry stars Charley Pride, Jim Ed Brown and Jeannie Seely are set to entertain during the seven-night voyage. Additionally, newcomer Chris Young, nominated for the Top New Solo Vocalist award by the Academy of Country Music, will be part of the line-up along with special guest Helen Cornelius. This marks the Opry’s 14th annual cruise and its first on Royal Caribbean International.

“We always have the time of our lives meeting the fans and enjoying our fellow artists’ music on board the Opry Cruise,” Pride said. “It looks like the 2011 cruise is going to be better than ever.”

Fans of the classics will experience private shows by the artists performing their own hits in addition to all-time country favorites throughout the week. Additional musical fun onboard will include classic country karaoke with celebrity guests and an exclusive cocktail party with fellow Opry Country Classics Cruise guests. Departing from Port Canaveral, guests will visit three ports of call: St. Thomas, St. Maarten, and CocoCay, Royal Caribbean’s private island destination in the Bahamas.
