What the heck is a Rontourage Cruise?
For that matter, what the heck is a Rontourage?  Rontourage is a term I use to describe my fans and followers. And a Rontourage Cruise is, well, a boat load of fun! A smashing success, the very first Rontourage Cruise took place in September 2015. Over 200 piano bar friends of the Rontourage gathered in New Orleans for a weekend of crazy fun before boarding the Carnival Dream and setting sail to beautiful islands of the Caribbean. Then in September 2017 we did it again - Rontourage 2 set sail from Port Canaveral, Florida for an unforgettable journey on the Carnival Magic to the western Caribbean.  Rontourage 3 sent 150 fans and friends on a cruise adventure to beautiful Alaska, where we filled our days with sightseeing and excursions in the gorgeous Alaska wilderness, and partied around the piano in the evenings.
And now, in cooperation with AmaWaterways and Real World Travels~Dream Vacations, I'm excited to announce Rontourage Cruise 4 (RC4).  RC4 will be something new and exciting... we are sailing down the Rhine River June 30-July 7, 2022!  We will be sailing with AmaWaterways on the river boat AmaLucia, debuting in 2021 and holding a maximum of only 156 guests. It's a 7-night voyage beginning in Amsterdam, Netherlands (Holland) and ending in Basel, Switzerland, visiting ports along the way in Germany, France, and Switzerland. This is unlike anything we've done before, and you're not going to believe how much is included in the price of this adventure! And yes, it includes me performing in the ship's lounge nightly! 🎹
