My 'get away from it all' songs:


"Everything's Gonna Be Alright" Bob Marley

"Montego Bay" Bobby Bloom

"Drift Away" (I like the Uncle Kracker version, with Dobey Gray)

"(I don't want to work, I want to") Bang on My Drum All Day" Todd Rundgren

"Magic Carpet Ride" Steppenwolf


(And "Come Sail Away" Styx as listed before)


The whole album from the movie, "Sahara" is my favorite traveling music, but not cruise specific.

Anyone know the names of the "line dancing" songs. I know one is the Cha Cha Slide, they played a bunch the night of the deck party and I don't know the rest. One might have been something about Cuba or Havana, really can't remember but they all had directions on how to dance. Any ideas?
