"This will be my 26th Cruise of Irish Stars and I feel so blessed to have been a part of this amazing annual event first held in 1998," says Andy Cooney.

"There’s a bit of something for everyone on the Cruise of Irish Stars. If you like to dance and party, you’ve come to the right place!  My band along with several other bands we bring will do just that.

"If you're fond of céilí dancing or group dancing, The Catskills Céilí Band led by All Ireland Button Accordion Champion John Nolan and caller Ron Bruschi will take care of that!  You’ll also enjoy some great concerts in the theater.  At the end of the day, we are one big family that looks forward to seeing everyone year after year.  

"Daily holy mass has also become a big part of our cruise since Fr. Frank Pizzarelli from Hope House Ministries started coming.  He has the gift of bringing everyone together as over 500 people attend his masses daily."

"My name is Dan Brennan and I'm from New Jersey, now living in the vibrant 50-and-over community called The Villages in Florida.  I love everything Irish as my family are from Ireland. Feeling connected to my heritage has always been so important to me.  I also love to sing! I love a lot of the traditional Irish favorites such as 'Danny Boy', and 'I’ll Take You Home Again Kathleen' to name a couple.

"Back over 30 years ago my wife Carolyn and I were blessed to be introduced to the music of Andy Cooney. I have to say our favorite event that we love being a part of is Andy Cooney’s Cruise of Irish Stars.  Andy surrounds himself with the greatest Irish entertainment package with over 20 different bands and performers.

We’ve been aboard some of the most beautiful ships on the high seas.  I must say, Princess Cruise Lines are the best out there.  The food was amazing, our cabin was spacious, and the staff couldn’t do more for us.  Combine that with the top Irish entertainment that we love, you’ll find yourself returning every year.  We have made so many new friends that we look forward to seeing year after year." - Dan Brennan
