PiercingMetal Thoughts: This sounds like a super cool idea and I will be keeping tabs on it for the readership as the information gets shared with the Media Command HQ. Of course, being completely honest with you all, 2022 is not even a concern for me at the moment because 2021 is slowly creeping up on us and I am fearing a lot of what we had happen in 2020 being par for the course once more. I’ve never actually been on any of these music cruises despite being very interested in the 70K Tons Of Metal and The KISS Kruize. I know if we had the budget we would go on more and right now an acoustic guitar player on the Staten Island Ferry would be fine for me as a music cruise since I miss the live music scene so damned much. A private island sounds fancy and Wimmer sure does know how to put on an event so I cannot wait for them to reveal the artists. Like I said, this is some stay tuned sort of news so I will close this up and let some of you get ready for the Christmas holiday. You can chime in down below with your thoughts about it as I’d love to hear from you. Stay healthy out there and remember to follow your own regional guidelines during this pandemic. See you next time around.
