Join me for the first FIDDLERMAN CRUISE
sailing on the beautiful NAVIGATOR OF THE SEAS
out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, April 10-16, 2016
Everyone is welcome!

Prices begin at $479.00 plus a $100 event fee, which includes group lessons and jam sessions with Fiddlerman, conference rooms for all special events, onboard and excursion credit. We guarantee the lowest possible price and best available rooms when booking with our group. We might even play a concert towards the end of the cruise. We'll eat, hang, and have fun together for 6 wonderful days. 🙂

Fiddlerman Cruise Facebook Page

This is a great place to meet and stay in touch with others who will be participating in the event. If possible, make plans for before and or after the trip. Plan excursions with other fiddlers that you suspect you will get along with. 

Fort Lauderdale is a paradise IMAO. I will most likely like to meet up with you at a nearby restaurant or pub if possible.

I'm quite interested in this, never been on a cruise before and the cost seems reasonable enough.  I am planning a big vacation earlier next year so will have to see how finances work out.

Great news mischa, it's going to be a blast. I hope that you can work it out. Would love to have you onboard. 🙂

Now this sounds like a fantastic idea!

If the boat is going to cruise by the north coast of Aussie, I'll join you.  Otherwise, it's just too big a project ... 2 full days flying just to get there!  place-3596

I'm so happy that Pierre has brought this to the group ... after all, we really are like a huge disseminated family (including sibling squabbles at times).

If you think you can, or you think you can't, you're probably right.

Common Robyn, what's 2 tiny days of traveling anyway?????

We would love to have you here. Think of what you would see. 🙂 The Caribbean, Florida, Fiddling friends......Jamming and playing every day.... Fantastic food, excursions and hangouts in the evenings.

I look forward to more discussions about this trip everyone. We've had lot's of questions and quite a few that are pretty sure they are going but not that many commitments. We don't really need commitments yet but we did invest money on cabins for 40 people and it would be great to have as many regular members as possible. 🙂

We have one male member looking for a roommate. If you are considering the cruise event and do not have a partner or buddy who can do it with you, let us know and we'll put you on our list.

The Fiddlerman Cruise Facebook page is a good place to post your requests as well. 🙂

Just realized that the cruise is next year! If I used up my vacation to go home at the end of the year, I may not have $ and vacation left:(( for the cruise. I will see what I can come up with and how many hours would I have by then.

BTW, what port does the cruise begin? Is it right in Fort Lauderdale?

Yes pky, Fort Lauderdale. The cost is not as bad as you may suspect. Did you check out the itinerary?

Thanks for clarifying Toni.
I meant single as in a female traveling alone. 🙂
Are you thinking about it Toni?????

Hey guys,

I just want to warn all of you that are interested that time is running out to get the great rates on the rooms that we booked and paid for. After the 20th of January we need to cancel those rooms to get our deposit back. Rates will rise and vary based on availability. If you are considering the cruise, don't wait too long.

This is my all time TV theme song. I couldn't find only the song, but I guess this will do.

But this is not about finding love. 😉

I used to watch this too.
So funny to watch it again. Checked out a few episodes for old time sake.

It's the love of the violin. A lot of Hollywood stars were scrambling to get a spot on the show and Jack Jones singing the title tune. I remember him from nearly 50 years ago. He recorded a lot of songs.

The "Fiddlerman" cruise is definitely something I would "love" to do, there are only two things stopping me, health and $$$, age doesn't have a role in it. I'm sure it will be a huge success.

Have fun everyone.
