Maybe you should think about trading your wife in for a one that likes to Jam?

And that will allow her to wake up and say good morning to you as you say good night to her and before you go to bed, the two of you can meet in the buffet lounge for limp translucent bacon.

so just an update: My wife seems more excited about the trip. She seems to be setting up some important details about what she wants out of the trip. Time to herself, waking up when she wants, not attending the Positive Legacy thing in Jamaica (wants a break from the music). She wants just one date night at a nice restraint (will take her to the nice place at the yacht Club so will put on the nice pants and shirt). She is also looking forward to the break from the kids. Any other suggestions?

she could use the spa.

and play video games.

but you know, maybe once she's on board she might find that she likes the music. there's always hope. ;)

I have a feeling she will get caught up in all of the good vibes that are going on the ship and all her plans for alone time will be quickly occupied by crazy freaky hippie people :D :D :shock: :shock: :D :D

2 stories...first my wife and I first went on JC 6. We had never heard of a single act. We were not into the jam/festival scene. Friends had asked us to go for years and we finally went. Needless to say, it was the trip that opened our eyes and this year we will be going on our 5th JC in 7years. 2nd story...so the people right behind us and our friends in line were in your situation. He rages, she reads. 7 years later they are going on their 5th JC also. And we are still in touch with them.

Now as far as answering you question about what else to do... All the boats I've been on before have had a casino, I would assume this one does too. In the ports, their will be non musical excursions both MSC sponsored or just from the locals at the port. Great chance for a change of pace. During the day there is plenty of places to soak up some sun, swim, and play. You'll hear the music but not too much if you don't want to. Not knowing your relationship,it's hard to say, but for me, one of the most important suggestions is the conversation beforehand...you need to discuss whether you have to be together all the time or can each find what makes you happy. Hopefully there are lots of times you want to be together, but when the time comes that you don't, that's ok too. You both may end up wanting to be somewhere else and worried about the other and that is not what Jam Cruise is about. First and foremost it is about leaving the real world behind and doing what makes you feel good in the moment without judgement from others, especially your significant other(oh and great, mind blowing music).

Dude, do not be concerned. Unless she's agoraphobic (and I assume that since you married her she's probably somewhat outgoing) or a prude or a New Jersey Housewife, she will end up having a ton of fun. My wife is also not so much into the music (and we're in our 50's), but the cruise is so much more than just the music that she always has an incredible experience. My wife is artistic and creative, so she has a ball decorating the door and getting us into costumes. And especially because she is not so much into the music or the scene, I love to hear her talk about the amazing time she has on Jam Cruise.

We met so many beautiful, creative, bright and happy people, that no matter what mood your wife arrives in she will almost instantly break into the groove. Huge smiling grins become automatic. There's so much to do, or not do, if you prefer, that there will most definitely be stuff for her to be attracted to. Fun, sun, food, yoga, spa experience, mani/pedi, gambling, shopping, drinking, reading, solitude, deep thought, chi gun, sleep, coffee on the balcony, deep conversations, light conversations, bowling, swimming, beaches, hot tub or doing nothing at all - just figure out what she enjoys and it'll be there. And a week away from the kids is just a bonus.

We'll be in room 13097 - Michael and Aliza, so stop on by and say hello.
