Whether it's from lack of interest or his current vocal situation I don't know. Keep in mind the outrageous price and a setlist of mostly covers. It's cool to see but the hardcore fans are getting the same type of shows they can see on land. It's great that they have other artists but if you're going specifically to see Jon it's neat but...I just don't see the value. Have a blast if you do but he's up there doing cover songs and the same songs he does at every fan club event. While those are cheaper, it's not by much.

It wasn't offense to anyone here. I mean if you don't like what BJ do now, how Jon sound now or llisten covers ecc this trip is not for you.

It's just great fun for people who love THINFSale, who accept how Jon sound today (we can read that people have great fun after shows in which on youtube Jon sound horrible) and can enjoy show with setlist which is far from their dream setlist.

Hmm. I never have seen BJ with KOS. I problably never listen live 50% or more songs from this setlist (I was on 4 BJ shows). For me it would be interesting to hear them live. I really don't like many BJ songs which live are enoyable (like Sleep WIDead for example). So for me listen this setlist would be interesting.
So 2 shows which 50% or more songs that I didn't heard live, watching museum, meet people from BJ camp, listen great stories, meet with fans around the world, listen other artist. I think for me this could be great fun and I'm not talking only about JBJ shows. 950$ is acceptable for this.

That's all. So from me voet goest to - Yes, I Do :)

You can see Jon in small place. Ask him a question. Make a photo.Go to BJ museum. Listen stories from people which were with the band for many years. Setlists are maybe not in my type but they are definitely interesting. House ORSun, Halleluyah ecc sound quite good as a youtube videos. You can see all this stuff. Many many interesting things for BJ fans. You can hear also many other interesting artists (Tonic, Goo Goo dolls ecc) and much more

Price 950$ for:
- 2 JBJ & KOS show
- Many other artists
- 4 days on luxury ship
- Q&A
- Interwievs with Bergman, O'Briean, Matt ecc
- BJ museum ecc
I think this price is acceptable for me.

I think many BJ fans would go on that trip in their own most favourite part in BJ history. I would love to go for that cruise in 88-90, 2000, 2005 but I would also love to go there now.

Let's be real.

$950 is the cost per person when sharing a tiny interior cabin with three other people.

When you add the taxes and fees, the $950 price turns into $1680. Travel insurance, if you choose to purchase it, is extra.

Want to enjoy cocktails onboard? The beverage package is an additional $100 a day. Now you're at $2080.

And unless you live where the port is, you also need to pay for a flight. And if you fly in the night before to ensure you don't miss the boat, you'll have to pay for a night's hotel stay too.

Of course, you will incur other additional costs throughout your trip.

Still worth it?

Good call on paying extra for drinks. This trip is absolutely worth it for some. If you have spending money, are okay with Jon's voice and aren't going expecting a lot of deep cuts, sure I can see how this is worth it for some fans. But those prices and Jon's voice just cut that down to a big no for me. But that's me.

But all that fluff goes for any vacation... The only true way to compare is to just find out how much that exact same cruise would cost without Jon... Someone should just look that up...

He said $950 is an acceptable price to him. My point was the cost ends up being nowhere near $950.

Regular cruises from Miami to the Bahamas are 1/4 to 1/2 the price. No one is taking this cruise just to go on a cruise. These are major Bon Jovi fans.

This cost which you add are the same in any other luxury ship trip.
I think it's kind of trip that you are going one time in life so 950$ (or more) + other cost for whole life? Still Yes from me.

O_O wait!!! How $950 turns into $1,680 (included taxes and fees)???
No way, that must be a payment plan for months or something... ‘cause as far as I understood the other time the full payment of $950 would be $1,170 (included taxes and fees)

However they say steady Runaway Tours customers were 50%, the other 50% were new people...

I just think they should improve their business, that is all.

Really now? Have you ever really travelled before?

As I told the many Facebook and Twitter friends who sent me links about the cruise: I am far more afraid of water than I am devoted to Bon Jovi. I won’t even walk out onto the pier of the lake on our property.
