Matchbox Twenty Announces Three-Night Cruise Aboard the "S.S. Matchbox"

Some say "happiness is a mat that sits on her doorway." But in reality, happiness is a three-night cruise with Matchbox Twenty's Rob Thomas at the helm.

For the first time ever, the 2004 People's Choice Awards selection for Favorite Musical Group is hitting the high seas aboard the Carnival Imagination "S.S. Matchbox," complete with a Matchbox 20 Q&A session, photo ops and, best of all, a "one-hour open bar cocktail party" to supplement the 71 other hours of cash-bar drinking.

"Hey guys, what's up?" a "Smooth" Rob Thomas rhetorically asks in a video announcement posted to his band's official YouTube Channel. "We're Matchbox 20 and we wanted to let you know that we're going on a cruise this winter, and you're all invited."

Well, there's a catch. While y'all are certainly "invited," you're not going anywhere unless you pony up the dough.

But get this: it'll only cost you and a guest about $1,400 to sleep in thimble-sized stateroom with toilets that actually flush (read: Carnival Triumph) and catch an intimate MB20 show.

So, whether it's for Yourself or Someone Like You, nothing beats a "Long Day" in the "Real World" better than complimentary room service at "3 a.m." aboard a 70,000-ton floating city en route to the Bahamas -- especially if you're from up North, where Mother Nature took a snow-white dump earlier this month. In that case, you're "Overjoyed" just thinking about white sandy beaches, Piña Coladas and all-you-can-eat buffets.

Bon voyage!
