Somewhere along the Caribbean sunset, AAA Travel embarks on its largest attended member group cruise ever. Over 700 members gather to dance, celebrate, and reminisce with the hottest musical acts of the 50s & 60s. Rocky & The Rollers perform with the likes of The Lovin' Spoonful, Bowzer & Johnny Contardo of Sha Na Na, and Jay Siegel of the Tokens to make sure that the lion won't sleep tonight, and many more.

AAA Travel employees work diligently on every AAA branded travel departure in order to bring members unforgettable and exciting memories. The most recent Rocky & The Rollers cruise event, two years in the making, departed Feb. 12, 2017 on Royal Caribbean. This exclusive AAA member cruise started about 10 years ago when a local band, Rocky & The Rollers, invited roughly 175 fans to join them on a cruise booked through AAA Travel. After 10 years, the event has continued to expand and grow in popularity.

Coordinating the AAA Travel branded event is no simple feat and requires collaboration across many different departments. AAA Travel contracts with the promoter and the cruise line to book the venue for each day's concerts, dances, and conferences. And even before the cruise sets sail, AAA Travel orchestrates the pricing, cabins, ordering of memorabilia, and processes all the documents. By offering exclusive cruises like this, we provide excellent service and innovative, unique experiences to our members - to help them enjoy life's journey!

Of course there is also all the work done on the ship to make sure our members have the time of their lives. AAA coordinates the onboard events like Prom Night, where attendees crown a king and queen after everyone has a "rockin' time" in their best prom outfits. Participate in 'Rockaroake' to karaoke to some of the featured performer's songs with a panel of artist judges. The winner earns the opportunity to accompany Rocky and The Rollers on stage the final night of the cruise. Members have the chance to mingle with the musicians during the cruise and at special autograph signings and Q&A sessions.

The musicians seem to enjoy cruising and appreciate the attentiveness that AAA Tour Managers provide to them and members. "If you love oldies and rock' n' roll, you gotta come on this (cruise). It's nothing but fun, fun, fun. You'll dance the night away. It's absolutely fabulous," says Tommy Mara of The Crests. "Plus all of the other icons that are on the show with him (Rocky), the food, the service....they take care of everything. AAA is top notch."

AAA Travel staff spends the week taking care of member's needs and making sure members are happy, but, it's not all fun and games, occasionally they have to get out on that dance floor too and make sure it's safe to have a good time!
