MIAMI, June 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Cruise event specialists Landry & Kling are pleased to announce the Native American Heritage Association (NAHA) has only a few cabin categories left for their Rock Legends Cruise IV, the biggest rock music festival at sea, sailing January 21-25, 2016 from Ft. Lauderdale roundtrip to Grand Turk. Now in its fourth year, this is the first rock music cruise charter series backed by a woman.
A sell-out crowd of over 4,000 rock fans are expected to cruise in support of a great cause aboard Royal Caribbean's Independence of the Seas, chartered by NAHA for 4 nights allowing fans to immerse themselves in a 'round-the-clock showcase of the greatest ever line-up of legendary rock bands performing their greatest hits.
IT BEGAN WITH ONE WOMAN'S VISION
When NAHA President, Pam Myers, sailed on a music cruise several years ago, it ignited her vision: Why not plan a rock cruise as a fundraiser? Her goal: Bring like-minded people together, encourage artists to mingle with fans, and keep costs reasonable with a short cruise and no VIP packages or additional fees – all as a new way to raise money for the charity. A great experience for the fans and the artists AND a successful fundraiser for the charity would equal a "win-win" for everyone involved. NAHA (Native American Heritage Association) is a 4-star charity founded in 1993 by Pam's father, David Myers. It exists to help in-need Native American families living on South Dakota Reservations.
In pursuit of her vision, Pam approached some well known music cruise organizers who didn't think she could succeed. "Those guys didn't understand how persistent I am," Pam says. So she turned to theme cruise specialists Landry & Kling – a women-owned firm with a staff full of women – who easily related to her mission, and Rock Legends Cruise was born: Pam explained:
"When we started this five years ago, I don't think any of us imagined how big or how amazing this (incredibly insane) 'little idea' would become. But my dad always told me 'do it well, or don't do it', so we set out to be the 'best of the best' and we've lived and learned with each of our past cruises. All of them had an incredible lineup, but next year, between the remarkable talent, a newer ship on a new itinerary and our 'legendary' fans, we fully expect Rock Legends Cruise IV to be the best one yet!"
