MOODY BLUES CRUISE Announces The Zombies to Reunite on ’18 Voyage for 50th Ann. of ‘Odessey & Oracle’

The fourth MOODY BLUES CRUISE has just announced The Zombies will reunite on the 2018 five night fan cruise — sailing out of Miami January 2-7, 2018 aboard Celebrity Cruises’ Celebrity Eclipse — with original members Chris White and Hugh Grundy joining Colin Blunstone and Rod Argent and their mates to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of their legendary album Odessey & Oracle.

Limited cabins are still available aboard the full-charter cruise starting at $1799 per person (double occupancy). Children 11 and under at the time of sailing are free when sharing a cabin with 2 full fare paying adults. Government fees, taxes, and gratuities are mandatory for all passengers regardless of age.

In 1967, five young Zombies walked into Abbey Road Studios #3 (right after some lads from Liverpool had finished their sessions for Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band) and recorded what became their final album, as the original band broke up soon after. They never suspected that two years later, the final track “Time of the Season” would become a #1 hit around the world and that decades later, Rolling Stone would list Odessey & Oracle at #100 on their list of the “500 Greatest Albums of All Time”. 50 years later, Moodies Cruisers will be treated to a double-bill of the current and original Zombies line-ups, performing all fan favorites and for the last time ever, the entire Odessey & Oracle album from start to finish.

So much more than a rock festival at sea, the immersive MOODY BLUES CRUISE 2018 is poised to be the best in its four-year history. Previously announced acts joining headliners The MOODY BLUES on their 2018 excursion dubbed Sur la Mer are ALAN PARSONS LIVE PROJECT, THE ORCHESTRA, LITTLE RIVER BAND, DAVE MASON, JEFFERSON STARSHIP, AMBROSIA, RICHIE FURAY, STRAWBS, CARAVAN, LIGHTHOUSE, IDES OF MARCH, SHAWN PHILLIPS, MIKE DAWES, RANDY HANSEN, MELLOW YELLOW and special guests YOUNG DUBLINERS.

Sailing out of Miami on Celebrity Cruises’ Celebrity Eclipse, the voyage will feature stops in George Town, Grand Cayman and Cozumel, Mexico. Once music fans board the ship on January 2nd, they’ll be treated to an unlimited complimentary buffet, free access to the ships state-of-the-art fitness center, pools, jacuzzi’s, deck chairs, casino and nightclubs. Over five nights at sea, fans will experience multiple sets from their favorite acts, intimate showcases, Q&As and meet-and-greet events. For cruise-goers wanting to start 2018 off in Moody Blues style, there will be a special New Year’s Eve concert and party in beautiful Miami, as well as New Year’s Day football-watching and music party, complimentary for all cruisers.

The Moody Blues formed in 1964 and have sold over 70 million records and influenced countless rock and prog music artists. Of the cruises, Moody Blues frontman Justin Hayward says, “It’s such a great opportunity to have all the fans together. I think the cruises are probably more about the people who love the Moody’s music getting together; I think we’re kind of incidental to it. I’m looking forward to it; it’s always fun. And it’s good to be with other artists. So much these days we’re the only artists on a bill; you never get to meet other people, but on the cruises you do. And there’s some really great people this year that I’m really looking forward to seeing again.”
