Fans of Bret Michaels can join him on November 10, 2011, for a 4 night cruise. Read more HERE

Wow, that would be a great opportunity for anyone who is a fan.

I wonder how much Carnival is paying him for this?

Can you imagine how much they could have charged for a cruise with someone like Elvis?

Should be a whole ship charter.

I hope whoever wants to go does the math and decides if Bret Michaels is worth it. I sure can't see how it is justified.

His 4-night cruise starts at $1100 per person for an inside cabin. This includes gratuities but otherwise just gives the person a farewell cocktail party and admission to his performance. Otherwise it is a normal cruise.

The 5-night cruise which boards on November 14 starts at $400 for an inside cabin if you choose to include gratuities in your booking fee.

So, for $700 you get a couple of drinks, a shorter cruise, and a Bret Michaels concert. I guess more math would show what his possible cut of the action is. Plus, one of the caveats in the contract says if the headline entertainment has to cancel they reserve the right to substitute.

Finally, the deposit is 25% and once you book anything you pay is non-refundable. 25% more is due at the end of January, another 25% in March, and the final 25% in May. You have to buy the insurance to get your money back.

Yes, I read the rates too and went YIKES! The part that said he would perform with "his"" band - I wonder if they mean a generic band or Poison.

I don't know anyone I'd pay an additional $700 to go see for an hour.

I don't either. I can probably catch them across the street at the House of Blues. I would have paid some extra when they had REO, Styx, and Journey all on the same cruise once.
