"Let's CRUISE !!!!
NIKLBEER CRUISE 2014 !!
"Lets do it again".... Sometimes in June we will announce the date of our next cruise.. We will use this time to check out some ships and itineries for our cruising friends .. We heard RCL, NCL and Carnival will have different choices in New Orleans.. So start rolling your nickles and get ready to cruise in January 2014........
Niklbeer Cruise 2012 was a HUGE success....The Voyager of the Sea's was absolutely beautiful...We had a meet and greet near the pool (after the Saints Game) then spent the rest of that day getting around the ship. The next morning Deacon Kincel led the group in a beautiful prayer service... The first party was Sports Team Spirit...We saw Saints, Tigers (LSU, SMSH, Breaux Bridge) Rajun Cajuns, Hockey Jerseys...Football, Baseball,Basketball supporters...even a few Bama's (who were very nice people)...........Night two was 70's night.....Studio B (ice rink) was a great venue with lighting, fog, spot-lights and a huge dance floor...it was really groovy...
The first two sailing days were breezy (like 50 mph)..but the ship really handled it pretty well.The first port Falmouth, Jamaica was so windy the Captain turned around and went to Montego Bay, Jamaica.....went to Margariteville, the sun came out and the weather was GREAT for the rest of the cruise...
The next day was Grand Cayman and 50's night...We saw lots of great 50's outfits...a couple of Elvis's,Blues Brothers, Jail House Rock prisoners, poodle skirts, Grease'ey Hair with T-shirts....That was a Rockin Joint !!
Our last party was Friday heading back home to New Orleans...so a Mardi Gras Party was the only way to do it right...The first three parties were for Niklbeer Cruise members only (580 people) but the Mardi Gras deck party was open the entire ship....We had our 580 plus an additional 1200 friends.....WOW ..We had a great time..everyone was so friendly....This was our 5th cruise and they keep getting better and better !!!
Kinda makes you want to do another one !!!!
Mike MaGee - Trumpet player from Lafayette has joined the NIKLBEER Band.. I met Mike in the 70's as we were both members of Allen Wayne's band playing at Signorille's Club (Slicks) in St Martinville... Mike's a great addition to the Band...
IT'S ON !!!!--- Yes, The NIKLBEER Cruise 2012 is on.. We will be sailing out of New Orleans on January 14, 2012 on the Humongous --Voyager of the Sea's-- for a 7 day cruise... ports include --Falmouth, Jamaica... Georgetown, Grand Cayman and Cozumel, Mexico... We were waiting to see what Carnival had available but they are a couple of months from announcing anything. Our Cruise is a "Word of Mouth" promotion so we felt the need to do something now. This ship is larger than the Conquest.. It features a Rock-Climbing wall, ICE Rink and a Promanade in the middle of the ship... We will play four theme parties on the ship...We will have access to the Pool deck area as well as the ICE Rink... More news later !!! Terry
Welcome Back JIMMY, Jimmy Higginbotham played Sax for NIKLBEER in the late 90's ... Now he's back!
2-5-2010 > Yes, The 2010 Niklbeer was a HUGE success, despite the cooler than normal weather... The cruisers were great and took it in stride.... We were thinking this might have been our last Cruise, but the 600 plus would have none of it... They circulated a contract (Fake, but Real) around. Got the band to sign it.... There was a Notary and an Attorney present in the group... It was all done in FUN, but they really want another cruise....So.....This June or July we will announce the date for the Niklbeer Cruise 2012.....We want to wait till then to look at all the options. (any new ships comming in, new ports and others).
I did post some Cruise pics on the web-site...also.... Go to www.youtube.com .....type in Niklbeer and there are some videos..
Thank you so much for sailing with us.... We had a blast....... Terry
