Pink Floyd-Themed Cruise To Suck Even More Money From Fans’ Wallets

It was probably only a matter of time: Pink Floyd finally has a cruise in its honor. The Great Gig In The Sea, which will set sail next May, is guaranteed to be a rollicking time, despite having zero performances by any members of the band during its three-day duration. (The cover band Think Floyd USA, which will become the first tribute band to headline Milwaukee’s Summerfest later this summer and claims that David Gilmour is totally a fan, will instead handle performance duties.) The Bahamas-bound jaunt will also have “Pink Floyd themed experiences,” although it doesn’t seem like a planetarium is on board, so I guess the whole light-show idea is out. Anyway, since I always seem to be getting into Floyd-related fights around here, I’m just going to say that I hope the cruise organizers have the presence of mind to stock the inevitable Texas Hold ‘Em room with miniature inflatable pigs in lieu of chips.
