A select number of cabins are still available for THE MOODY BLUES CRUISE II, the second fan cruise from The Moody Blues, sailing the Caribbean April 2-7, 2014 aboard the MSC Divina. Included in USAToday.com’s list of “The Best Music Cruises At Sea”--THE MOODY BLUES CRUISE II--will also feature Roger Daltrey of the Who and his band and a collaboration with The Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund (DioCancerFund.org), a non-profit charitable fund formed in honor of the legendary rock singer Ronnie James Dio, who lost his life to stomach cancer in 2010. In support of the charity, the cruise will raffle a full size 2013 Mini Cooper--featuring customized cruise graphics with the “Moody Cooper” stylized logo plus a permanent plaque and certificate of authenticity signed by The Moody Blues--to one lucky fan aboard the ship. Hoisted aboard the MSC Divina with a 20-story crane, the Moody Cooper will be displayed on the pool deck throughout the cruise. Passengers sailing aboard will be given the opportunity to obtain raffle tickets in international waters during the cruise, with a donation going to Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund in Honor of Ronnie James Dio. Along with the one-of-a-kind, full size Mini Cooper, the winner will be presented the keys to the car by The Moody Blues band members. In addition, the recipient will pose for pictures with the car and The Moody Blues, as well as receiving a souvenir “Making of The Moody Cooper” picture book and merchandise package. “Meet” the Moody Cooper here: http://tinyurl.com/mj2zfzu.
