Do you have a particular song that plays in your head when you think of cruising? Maybe you even have more than one, like a Cruise Playlist. I get myself and my family in the mood by having a fun attitude and playing some cruise music. It got me thinking, so many cruisers have a cruise playlist of favorite cruise inspired songs. It includes some popular current songs, as well as some cruising classics. Corny and all. I actually just came off an 11 day Celebrity Cruise, and even danced to this there as part of the sea day pool activities.
Some happy, some sad. I have a confession. It took me years to finally see The Titanic. But when I did, it was better than I thought it would be! Micky Arison chairman of Carnival Corporation was convinced by his daughter, after she saw Titanic, that people wanted and craved the nostalgia of old world cruising. I think of Jimmy Buffet every time I have a frozen cocktail at 11 am on a cruise. A light summer song, Soak Up the Sun makes me think of sea days by the pool and gorgeous days on the beach.
Oh, I love this. What a classic! The Dock of the Bay has be remade several times, by several artists, and I love the original by Otis Redding. Sailing by Rod Stewart is a must-listen for anyone who loves to cruise and sail. I love some old school Madonna including Holiday right?
This is where I long to be, la Isla Bonita. Imagine sitting at the back of your cruise ship staring into the wake. This French song just gets me. However, this is definitely a favorite cruise playlist song for many! Not a worry in a world of cold beer in my hand. Life is good today.
Does this make you think of a relaxed beach day and some time at the beach bar? Sounds like a great vacation day ahead! I hope that some of these songs inspire you to think about cruising and vacations and all the happy memories that come along with this!
