Hello everyone,

As you know we've made it a point to pursue our own path since the launch of the good ship Belle and Sebastian.

In the spirit of this and with an anniversary in our sights, our collective mind has been day dreaming of a future journey we'd like to make with YOU… a cruise!

What if the magic of 1999’s Bowlie Weekender was recreated 20 years on with 2,500 like-minded music fans, dozens of your favourite bands, and us, on an exciting and once in a lifetime four day cruise holiday through the Mediterranean?

We’d love to hear your thoughts about taking a music festival holiday curated by your captains Belle and Sebastian and what it would take to literally get you all on board with this idea!

Could we steal a few moments of your time to answer a few questions below? 

* 1. We would be sailing from Barcelona, Spain in August of 2019 - where would you like to go?

* 2. How many port stops would you like to make during our 4 day journey?

* 3. What type of cabin do you think you would like ?

*Note: Prices are based on two people in one cabin (double occupancy). The average cost per person comes down with additional 3rd or 4th guests in your cabin, and kids 14 and under sail at a significantly discounted rate. Price includes your cabin accommodations, all shows by all bands, activities on board, guest souvenirs, all meals / dining daily in sit down service and buffet restaurants, non-alcoholic beverages such as coffee, tea, juice and water, and access to ship amenities such as the pool, jacuzzis, duty free shopping, casino, fitness center, sports court, 12 bars and more. Rates do not include airfare and lodging before or after the cruise.

* 4. Who would you want to bring on this holiday?

* 5. Besides Belle And Sebastian we would like to bring 10 to 15 bands along with us, who would you like to see play on the cruise?

* 6. We would aim to make this holiday as immersive as possible - imagine interactive activities and sessions with Stuart and the whole band. What ideas do you have for activities that we could bring to life on this event? 

* 7. Have you ever attended a Belle & Sebastian curated Bowlie Weekender event?

* 8. If yes, in which years did you attend Bowlie Weekender?

* 9. Have you ever traveled outside of your home country to see Belle And Sebastian perform?

* 10. Where would you be traveling from?

* 11. Have you ever been on a traditional, non-music festival cruise?

* 12. How likely are you to join us on a Belle And Sebastian curated cruise sailing from Barcelona? (Please check all that apply)

* 13. What is your age?

* 14. As we explore the idea of a cruise curated by Belle And Sebastian, is there anything else you would like to share with us?

* 15. What is your gender?

* 16. May we send you further questions or updates in the future?
