siouxi_6014's picture

Pixie, are you on the 3 doors down boards too? :)

pixie19's picture

There's a core group of Lifehouse fans going too. We wouldn't miss this for anything! I've seen some 3DD fans post too and of course on here for Shinedown. Glad to see a few bands will have dedicated fans aboard! 8)

Hoping some more of you can join in the fun! :D

I <3 Carolina Liar!

pixie19's picture

Was on Grand Cayman when I was a kid and don't remember a whole lot except beautiful blue water and a boat trip we took!

Here's the line-up so far:

3 Doors Down
Lifehouse
Shinedown
Carolina Liar
Finger Eleven
Safetysuit
Parachute

Pretty good line-up so far in my book! Really hoping Matt Nathanson gets added - quite a few us requested him.

*waves* back to merckjr 8)

dalamar_2's picture

Yeah, the Grand Caymans are something to be seen. When the ship approaches, it's got to slow down and stop almost a full mile off shore because the waters are too shallow to allow accosting. You'll get to embark into smaller boats and be taken to shore by the crew a few heads at the time.

First off: do not lose whatever form of ID you are provided with the cruise otherwise you'll have a hard time getting back onboard. (Since you'll most likely have left your passport with the purser's petty officer).

Secondly: if you bring money, keep it close.

Third: The Clock, the outside one, at the arrival dock, is a Rollex. That should give you a hint on how much a cab fare (IF you're lucky to find one) or a beer costs.

lorilee's picture

Oh GAWD! One can only imagine!! It will be my first cruise also, so I am massively stoked about it!! :D

pixie19's picture

Thanks Lorilee! Glad to be here!

Oh the cruise is gonna be GREAT! I am so excited for the all bands! Lucky me it leaves port from Tampa - I'm only 2 hours away! My best friend is coming as well as several of my die hard Lifehouse concert buddies! My BFF is also a HUGE Shinedown fan and this will be her first chance to see them live! She's stoked! Yeah, it's gonna be good times for sure! :D

lorilee's picture

Welcome to the boards Pixie!! It's nice to see a brave "new comer" post and join in the fun!! I am also going on the cruise with Merkjr and it will mos def be a blast! We need to meet up at some point!
Keep posting and have fun!! :D

pixie19's picture

Hey everyone! I am very excited that I am going on the cruise - fan of Shinedown, Lifehouse and 3 Doors Down so this cruise was made for me! :wink:

destiny453's picture

That is what you call improvising! :) :lol: Unlucky they didn't play it.

squarestang68's picture

:cry: I wish I could go... Saw band in Louisville, KY & used a pizza box from the event to make a sign requesting "CRY FOR HELP"... I thought Brent saw it & I was so excited - I wanted to hear it live, but it didn't happen! Easy to get over, because the concert was amazing!

destiny453's picture

:lol: That is one weird but quite creative dream! lol

destiny453's picture

Yeah it is rather yummy :) :)

destiny453's picture

oh wow. i had not heard that. thanks i'll keep that in mind when i see them.

Just a thought here - Zach commented that he's off Skittles now, and has tons on the bus. Jake, however, has taken up the habit!

okay well have fun and best of luck on the trip. don't forget to pack skittles for zach.

What time do you leave?

oh hell yeah that is great news. have a blast karen. i know you'll represent the SD Nation well. Take care of yourself and have a great time.

I bet your latest was a pretty penny! that is a large piece and beautifully shaded, I might add. Will it be all black after healing?

Sounds good siouxi, yeah tattoos don't come cheap!! :(

I think i want it on my ankle. but i'm not sure how big and what it would look like. Need to safe some money for it first. :)

That's great siouxi, if it is something you can relate too then i think you should go for it :)
I definately want some lyrics from What A Shame cos it is so personal too me, well a few partciular lines are.
Where are you thinking of getting it?

Your pain is a gift, for me isn't a negative thing.
I have gone through a lot of shite from the time i was very small and it gave me the ability to fight for what i want and to appreciate the good things in life more. :)
So it is a positive statement.
For me it doesn't refer to physical pain, but for mental pain.
It might look inapropriate but the minute i saw it i knew i wanted that as a tattoo. Not on my hand though.
Can't explain it any clearer.

I can see the pain thing being very personal to you. But I personally try to make it a practice not to own or "claim" negatives in life, but the positives, mos def! I always want to celebrate life and it pleasures. I have some chronic health issues myself, but with a positive attitude I have really learned to not let them define who I am. I am much more defined by being funny, horney, crazy, irreverent, etc. Catch my drift? :?

I find it's WAYYYY more fun!!!! :D

same here very deep words indeed.

Merk...you're so deep! I love that about you! <3LL

I want: your pain is a gift.
It is so true. :)

Yea, that too!!

good ones indeed. i'd like to get "long live that day that i decided to fly fro m the inside"

If I were to get any lyrics , them would be the ones!!!! :lol:

well my wife and i are ok. my car's front got pushed in somewhat. any my airbags deployed too. so i gotta see what the damage will be to the wallet.

Oh was it bad??? :(

i hope so. i just got in a wreck a week ago. gotta get my car fixed up first then get tatted.

Thats a cool idea for a tat junkie, you getting it soon??

awesome. i love that line. i'm going to get it tatted. on my arm.

That's a good plan girl, that's the way life should be lived, it is short afterall :)

I can really relate to that statement, especially since coming on here! I am no longer willing to let life pass me by. I am gonna live outloud and Fly From The Inside!!!!!! :D

The I dont wanna live part beneath your posts :)

What do you mean???? :?

Likin your little signature lorilee :)

:D

Off course, the pleasure would be all mine. :D

Siouxi, you can come if you bring you belly-dancing costume and give us a "crash course"!!! GRRRRRRR!! :twisted:

I'll keep my fingers crossed. :D

Yes so fingers crossed, i'm having my fortune read tonight :lol:

Lol would be cool. :D

Yes I will just use my private jet, i have one of those, or i will if i win the lottery :) :)

Good girl, i knew i could count on you. :wink:

Oh sorry Rita, you come too, will pick you up in the netherlands after take off :)

[quote="lorilee"]Imagine it... ship-wrecked on a deserted island... only us and THEM!!!! Ican't be doing this at work... too heavy! :oops:[/quote]

*taps foot, looking anoyed ;) :D* aren't you girls forgetting someone?
I wanna shipwreck with Them and YOU too. *pouts*

OMG!!! Wow that would actually be awesome, ok I must find a way onto this cruise, maybe if I speak nice to my mum she will help me out on my birthday?? :)

Imagine it... ship-wrecked on a deserted island... only us and THEM!!!! Ican't be doing this at work... too heavy! :oops:

Yes i also heard that's true :) Best get playing then, that or bingo

They say that you can't win if you don't play!!

Well i have to actually play the lottery first i guess!! :lol: :lol:

T'would be great! I hope you win!!

Ok we won't :lol: Just me cos I'm special :) I'm gonna win the lottery and come on this dam cruise!!!! :)

It was busy but good! Had lots of kids around the house all weekend which is always interesting...after all, I am "Mama Shuman" and no...you all do NOT have permission to call me that!!! LOL :lol:

LORILEE.... We are as bad as each other i think :) :P Just bringing a bit of humour to the group, weekend was fab, how was yours?? My pics will be on FB soon :)

Thanks my friend, what have we got if not each other? :wink:

i'm glad to hear i made you smile lol. you all make my day every day.

Junkie, you crack me up!!! :wink:

lol that's very true lorilee it could definately be taken both ways.

DESTINY!!!! You think I'm bad...You are too! :twisted: (Or good, depending on how you look at it!) :shock:

[quote="destiny453"]Guess what......I'M BACK! :D[/quote]hey destiny! i missed u! how was ur fun filled weekend? :D

very good choices indeed. that last one can be very very fun if done early and often lol.

Shinedown, Gigging....and another thing beginning with S and ending in X :lol: :lol: :P

lol for me it's SD, SD nation, and music.

yeah me 2...and i can think of a few :) :lol:

me either not real drugs only things that give me my natural high lol that i need to keep me going.

Yes I have a few drugs of choice....but not actual drugs though :twisted:

very true. i like beer it's a good way to relax and enjoy a good time but nothing else is needed well except for SHINEDOWN LOL. that and these boards are my other drugs of choice lol.

Nor mine, i accept that my friends do it but that doesn't mean i think it is ok...i just don't need that kinda shit to enjoy myself

i see. i'm not into that type of stuff either. i'll drink beer but everything else doesn't draw my attention. like you say we have more sense than that.

Well lets just say a few of the people there weren't just on alcohol...not me tho, i have more sense

wow that's sounds like a lot of fun. i don't like when people can't handle their alcohol. it's really disgusting and discouraging.

Alcohol, people being sick everywhere :( Not me, I can handle it, we got free champagne and drinks and a 24 hour bar and there was like 40 of us...fun fun fun :)

that is awesome. messy in what way? lol.

Very good, very messy and I suffered for my sins all day yesterday, was sooooo worth it though! :D

awesome glad to hear it. how was the fun filled drunken weekend?

Guess what......I'M BACK! :D

Have fun and take care. See you on monday :)

awesome hope you have a lot of fun.

Yeah, i leave tomorrow and back on monday...i think :)

[quote="destiny453"]Oh I'm lucky me and Ross are really into our gigging, and we will pretty much go and see any band, seriously :lol: And he always comes shopping eith me when i ask, he is such a sweet heart! :D lol[/quote]awww how sweet! hey i thought u were away for the weekend? and i get my phone back!

[quote="siouxi"]i'm afraid that won't work. I already tried that.
He says hard rock gives him itch. :D
I don't really mind i like to have my own things too.

I like to go shopping with him, because he loves to shop. Ain't that great a husband who loves to shop? :lol:[/quote]lucky u! my boyfriend hates shopping with me! i drag him 2 the mall! :lol:

[quote="lorilee"]That's so sweet Junkie! She is a lucky lady to have such a loving and supportive Hubby!!!

To Siouxi...(and everybody) remember how I was hesitant to go by myself to Madison? Taking a road trip by myself actually was a blast! I enjoyed blasting my Shinedown as loud as I wanted, my hotel room was luxurious and I felt pampered. I met friends at the show, so I didn't have to worry about entertaining anyone that came with me. It gave me a great feeling of freedom and confidence to do it all on my own!! I highly recommend it! :D[/quote]
that's awesome. i'll be traveling alone to the show in october. dont' know yet who will get the extra ticket it's still up for grabs. if no one snags it before the day of the show i'll either take one of my friends with me or i'll meet someone at the venue and make their day by giving them a shot at seeing shinedown live plus a meet and greet. lol

yeah it is. i love shopping with my wife. she is so much fun. before everything else in our relationship we are great friends so we always have that great connection. plus she is not that huge of a shopper so i don't get tired when i shop with her. it's just fun.

i'm afraid that won't work. I already tried that.
He says hard rock gives him itch. :D
I don't really mind i like to have my own things too.

I like to go shopping with him, because he loves to shop. Ain't that great a husband who loves to shop? :lol:

lol that sounds like a good plan.

Yeah he is the best and i love him to pieces. :D

[quote="siouxi"]He doesn't go to all conerts with me but he does kinda like 3 Doors Down and he went to all 7 Bon Jovi concerts with me.
He likes rock but more softer rock not hard rock, that's too loud for him.

He doesn't mind if i go with friends though.
I can also go alone -wich i kinda like- when it's not too far away, and he can come pick me up afterwards, he doesn't want me to come home by bus or car on my own in the middle of the night.[/quote]wow, cool! and 7 bon jovi concerts? wow! at least he picks u up cause he doestnt want u driving at night! wht a nice hubby! :lol:

Yeah the Scottish and the Celts have history :) But I do really wanna go :D You have Irish roots right?? Do you have family that stay in Ireland??

[quote="siouxi"][quote="shinedownjunkie45"]well i still feel that he should understand that you love him and that you have a deep admiration for eric and the band.[/quote]

My husband doesn't understand either.
He's not into music the way i am and he doesn't like Shinedown at all. :([/quote]well tht suck tht he doesnt like the same bands u do! but does he still take u to concerts?

It is similiar and Scotland is one of my next places i have to go.

My house is covered in Irish/Celtic things...and all my ink are celtic too!

I love me some IRE!!!

Cool, i am thinking we are gonna go to Dublin for my hen do so would you recommend it then? :) I love all the history and culture surrounding Irealnd, i think that's cos it is similar to Scotland

to lorilee im sorry to hear that he is insecure towards you. it has to come from within him. there really isn't much else you can do if you've never given him a reason to think that you would leave him for someone else. it seems he hasn't quite gotten over the 9 years ago thing. i used to be really insecure about my wife before we actually got married. but after a while i just realized that she is who she is and at the end of the day i'm still her husband and the one she wants to be with. everyone else don't matter lol for lack of better words. so it's gotta come from within your husband that he accepts that. siouxi i'm sorry your husband don't get it either. it's harder especially since he doesn't even like the music sometimes that makes it easier for them. i don't know if i was this dedicated about a band that had girls in it if my wife would be as cool but i'd like to think she would. but she knows i only love her and want to be with her.

Merk and Siouxi, It's really hard when they aren't into music the way we are. I have loved Shinedown's music for several years. I became a really FAN when Eric came on board, he brought a fresh energy, and his performance...when you already know!!.
Merck, about 9 yrs ago I did leave and yes I had good reasons, but we worked it out. There are still things though, I want him to believe in me as a person, just as I am.

[quote="shinedownjunkie45"]well i still feel that he should understand that you love him and that you have a deep admiration for eric and the band.[/quote]

My husband doesn't understand either.
He's not into music the way i am and he doesn't like Shinedown at all. :(

Sometime I do think he is afraid that I will leave or find someone else. He is really into sports and has lots of friends and does guy stuff. I have just learned to find my own interests and do my own thing. Usually it's ok with him. He say's i'm too old to be a "groupie"! He just doesn't "get it"! :wink:

Well, our 22nd anniversary is Oct 15th. I think he should know by now. I don't dig the jealousy thing at all. I want him to love me for the crazy lady that I am , not be who he thinks I should be, true? I don't really give him any reason to doubt.

[quote="shinedownjunkie45"]well i still feel that he should understand that you love him and that you have a deep admiration for eric and the band.[/quote]He is very insecure when it comes to me. :(

[quote="destiny453"]I wanna go to the Temple Bar :) How was Ireland??? and lorilee i'm sure your husband won't get mad :D[/quote]

Ireland was AMAZING and I cried all the way home. It is the one place on earth i felt like i was truly home.

And Temple Bar is sooo much fun. I was in Dublin for 3 days, 2 of which were when U2 was there and NO NO NO NO *temper tantrum* I didnt have tix.

BUTTTTTTTT....After my piercing my friend and I were in a pub and ran into a man from where???? PORTLAND OREGON where I live...and he said it was too bad he didnt know I was in Dublin wo a ticket since he had an extra one!!!!!!!!!!

That being said, I made him buy the guinness the rest of the night!!!! And, it was a lonnnggggg one!

well i still feel that he should understand that you love him and that you have a deep admiration for eric and the band.

Cool, that always make you feel more at ease when you're about to get tattooed, you make friends everywhere you go :D Do i sense you may be getting some more body art? :D

It was weird, she was a very "spiritual"(for lack of a better word) person and very perceptive. It's like she could read me. We made a real connect and she is now my friend of FB. I want to check out her stuff for her work. Maybe you'll be able to learn about her too. She practically told me her life story~VERY INTERESTING!!! :D

haha lorilee your tattoo artist rocks!! :)

[quote="merkjr"]no doubt. it should totally be a shinedown party
get enough of us to make it a shinedown boat.
poor 3 doors down. haha.[/quote]

there's a lot of people from the 3Doors Down boards going.
Even some european's are going.
*sigh* i wish i could go. My two fave bands on one boat. Heaven!!

[quote="destiny453"]That's true, hmmm decisions...probably best to have some money just incase you do fancy something :)[/quote]wow im glad i dont have 2 exchange $!

That's true, hmmm decisions...probably best to have some money just incase you do fancy something :)

is the exchange rate not very good at the minute?? it is for the UK to US dollars...but not so good when changing back!

[quote="merkjr"]well worth the $2000 this is gonna cost me after exchange to cdn dollars and all. haha.[/quote]omg! $2000? wow :o

[quote="merkjr"]true dat.

haha. maybe brent will take his shirt off on the ship. haha[/quote]wht a sight tht would be!! haha :lol:

Oh, I like them too, but ...well, you know!! :wink:

My tattoo artist said that if she didn't have a full day booked on Monday that she would go up to Madison with me for the show!! I took my CDs in and we blasted Shinedown in her Parlor while she worked on me! She sent her hubby to get us Iced Coffees and we totally turned it into a party! She would be a great addition...especially if she brought her kit with her!!! :lol:

I think that would be more than the law would allow!!! You and Me??? Oh He77 Yeah!!! :D

Re: VH1 Cruise....who's goin!!

[quote="carrie"]I am!! :D[/quote]u ppl r SO lucky 2 be goin! i really want 2 go! :cry:

Wow now that would be some f**king wedding :) :lol: I think I would end up wanting to marry someone else there though....haha...Im just kidding, yes it is very exciting but it seems so far away :(

Did you say that you had to buy 2 tickets for the cruise? I just Tweeted you!

awesome. i'm happy for you. getting married is one of the most exciting things one could ever be excited about. I think for me personally the only the thing more exciting would be going to an Sd show or going to an SD meet and greet lol.

Thank you...i have a count down it is 403 days til we leave and 410 days til we get married :) Lol

oh wow a wedding in jamaica. pretty cool. Congradulations. I don't know if I could go but I hope you have a great day that day.

[quote="carrie"]Did you see the video they put on the site today! AWESOME! Brent is such a crazy man, love it! :lol:[/quote]

So Funny!! I can't wait to see them on the ship!

Did you see the video they put on the site today! AWESOME! Brent is such a crazy man, love it! :lol:

No doubt. You should've just been on the bus with them ;)

Yeah! Pretty sweet! Saw them 6 nights though back in November with Buckcherry, that was amazing!

Twice in one week. Not too shabby!

[quote="lisac"]Did you see them last night?[/quote]

I did! Saw them in Brookings Sunday night as well. Both were AMAZING shows....just wish they were longer! I really got spolied in May when they were headlining!

:o

Woohooo! We're booked too!

Booked our room! I'm so excited! It's official. I'm going on vacation with the Shinedown guys! :)

Don't think i will be able to go would be amazing Shindown and 3 DOORS DOWN GIGS ON THE SHIP. All booked up for the Download festival next june so hopefully Shindown will play again. Rumours are AC/DC and Van Halen are playing one of te days.

Cheers Ian(scotlandbanff)

I was gonna go to this but then I saw the no under 21s. :(

Did you see them last night?

so excited to book! Presently waiting for sd to hit the stage!!

Cool. Thanks for the link. Looks like there are still plenty to choose from. I'll post tomorrow which show I end up at. I am so EXCITED!!!!! This will be by far the best vacation ever!

[quote="lisac"]Crossing my fingers that I can get the same. I agree, we definitely need to meet up. Hoping there's still plenty of good rooms left tomorrow. Of course, it doesn't really matter. I just need a place to sleep, even if its just a chair on the deck :)[/quote]

http://www.vh1bestcruiseever.com/Prices/

Crossing my fingers that I can get the same. I agree, we definitely need to meet up. Hoping there's still plenty of good rooms left tomorrow. Of course, it doesn't really matter. I just need a place to sleep, even if its just a chair on the deck :)

[quote="lisac"]I am so jealous! My token isn't good till tomorrow. How was the room selection? Still plenty left?[/quote]

Yes but their was area sold out already but still plenty of rooms! Thank you 3 doors down Fanclub i got early token!! The Shiner Boardies need to meet up for drinks sometime!!!! I'm going to Show 1 zone 1 (floor) for the 3 doors down show!

I am so jealous! My token isn't good till tomorrow. How was the room selection? Still plenty left?

I just booked my room.... Ocean Veiw & Main Floor Cabin!!! Im ready to party like A ROCKSTAR!!! Also Front Floor Tickets To see 3 Doors Down!! Can you tell im excited!!!

Wow! I would love to do that, no wonder you are excited...I would totally come over if I wasn't getting married next year! It wouldn't cost us that much for the flights as you can get some really good deals from the UK to Florida as it is popular....I must stop thinking like this or my wedding wont be happening! Lol

haha....they're totally worth it AND we get a WICKED AWESOME vacation! I'm super dee dooper stoked!!

So you guys are paying for like the flights and then 2 go on the cruise? :) wow that is dedication, it will be an amazing experience!

We're sharing, I had a token sent to her as well in the case of a situation like this

Oh good! I knew it would work out for you. Are you and your friend sharing a cabin or did they decide not to go?

Phew! My friend got July 29th as well so we'll just use her code.

Absolutely! Think positive! I will see you there! :)

I hope so!! I refuse to entertain the thought that I won't get to go. I AM GOING!!!

Or enough cabins left that the date won't matter. It is a pretty big ship :)

*fingers crossed*

I don't blame you. I'm sorry. Surely there will be somebody with an early date that won't be using it.

the first day! OMG....Im so annoyed right now :(

That sucks. When did you put in for the presale?

Did anyone register for presale who wont be using their token? If so and its earlier that July 31st could you forward it to me please?

TIA!

no way! I got july 31st. What crap :x

I just got my email! Yay!!! My time is July 29th @ 5. Not too bad considering it starts on July 28th.

Lisa from Sixthman says that we should receive the email today or tomorrow & that everyone that signed up for the presale will get an email.

Agreed!

GRRRR....waiting is SO not my strong point....ho hum..... :shock:

I'm with you! I'm not a very patient person, especially when it comes to the chance to vacate with the Shinedown crew :)

oh ok. Hmmmm. I want mine...no fair!!!!

Hopefully we'll get it soon. Some people on the Sixthman forum have already gotten theirs. I think they were 3DD fan club members though.

Me either :cry:

I'm flying from Virginia to Florida. :) & I still haven't received my presale token :(

Im flying to Florida from Winnipeg, Canada

Wow! That sounds fantastic! :) So does the ship leave from Florida? Are you guys from there or are you paying for flights aswell as the cruise? :)

Of course we do, and we will!!

& we have to meet up on the ship too :)

You bet Lisa!

Cheers!

Carrie, I'll post on here when I get my email if you'll do the same :)

Destiny - I'm hoping they are there for at a couple days. There's only one stop so I would think they would have to be on there at least the first half or the second half. Besides, they need a vacation! They should stay the whole time. :)

Not necessarily the whole week. It said some artists may have to arrive late or leave early due to scheduling arrangements. Im just happy for the SD shows, hanging with my ladies AND the sun and the surf! I can't wait! :P

do the guys actually stay on the ship with you for the week?

Nope! I was just gonna ask the same thing!

Has anyone gotten their presale token yet?

lets pool are money together and go siouxi! :) I am mega mega jealous, i always wanted to go to the Caribbean and I love SD so that would be perfect!

I so wish i could afford to go. But there's no way i could unless i win the lottery. :D

I am so jealous! Are the guys on the ship with you for a whole week?? :) :)

Hell yesssssssssssss I'm going !! Can't wait and it's so far away haha!! I just think it will be a great vacation with great music and good times with friends and music we love :)

Im so jealous it looks fab! Too bad I'm so far away, if I wasn't planning on getting married next year I would be there :)

im goin! im guessing shinedown will be roaming the ship with us???? please tell me thats true

I wish! I might be workin in a school so unfortunately I wouldn't be able to get the time off which is a bummer :(

Me too!

No, nothing. I was reading on the Sixthman forum and apparently you don't get a confirmation that you're registered. You'll just get the email with the "token" so you can book. I hope mine registered ok.

There's a topic on there too for who else you would like to see on board. Who would you like to see? I suggested Halestorm & Adeliata's Way.

Here's a link http://www.sixthman.net/community/viewforum.php?f=27

Lots of other good info too. Apparently 3 Doors Down is the only ticketed show. There will be 2 shows, you pick which one to go to and what zone to be seated in. I like 3 Doors Down but I'm there for Shinedown 100%! :) As long as I can see them every time they perform, I'll be happy.

No. Did you?

http://www.vh1bestcruiseever.com/FAQ/index/

Here is a link to FAQs. It tells you about the payment schedule.

Carrie - did you get a confirmation email or anything that you had registered for the pre-sale?

thanks for that link on facebook, it looks brilliant! How much does it cost? :)

thanks for that link on facebook, it looks brilliant! How much does it cost? :)

Yep sure did!

LOL. Did you register for the pre-sale?

Yeah we do! I can't wait...well ok its a 9 month wait but who's counting :D

I am!!! I was so excited to get the email yesterday! Can't wait! We all need to get together for a drink.

ME 2!!! If so we will have a BLAST!!! I have to miss the SD concert on July 26th i wont miss this!!!
