We were first timers, so don't know how to compare to other JC sailings, but it was freakin' awesome! Not sure where to begin.
Umphrey's on the first night - one of the best UM show's I've ever seen. Shine on You Crazy Diamond in the middle of the ocean, soaring guitars, amazing.
Railroad Earth blew me away, and I wasn't really a fan before seeing them live.
Soulive, Galactic, KDTU, all awesome.
The New Mastersounds. Holy Shit! Incredible. I think I've found another "must go see whenever they're in a 100 mile radius" band.
Keller & the Keels - great fun to watch.
7 Walkers - two great sets.
Ozomatli & Orgone are both bands I hadn't see or heard before - loved both of them.
Zach Deputy, Big Sam and the Lee Boys seemed to be everywhere. Everytime you turned around at a set they were getting up on stage to join in.
Labadee was very cool. Extremely laid back. It was so relaxing to lay on a beach chair while listening to very cool sets from Zach Deputy and Toubab Krewe.
The energy was great through the whole cruise. So much fun and the parties were great.
My face is still sore from smiling so much.
