The 80s Cruise

Book now with the offer code “STUCK” to get a special discount!

The first-ever The ’80s Cruise set sail in late February 2016 on the Holland America Eurodam. On board: 10 bands, 3 original MTV veejays, 2 hosts from Stuck in the ’80s and more than 2,000 screaming, lunatic fans of the ’80s. It was a once-in-a-lifetime adventure… or was it?

Big ’80s Trivia Contests

Steve Modern English

Steve Spears and “Brad in L.A.” hosted five trivia challenges aboard the Holland America Eurodam. Some of the questions and answers turned into singalongs, as the crowd sang along to TV theme songs.

The highlight of the week was Friday’s trivia session, which featured members from the band Modern English. Robbie Grey and the gang joined Spearsy and Brad to help the audience with clues to questions and then stayed afterward to sign autographs for fans.

Stuck in the ’80s will be back to host trivia sessions again for the 2017 ’80s Cruise!

Meet & Greet


Those who booked with the Stuck in the ’80s promo code got invitations to a welcome cocktail party with Spearsy and Brad in L.A. It was a great time to meet everyone face to face, ask burning questions, and drink free booze!
