While I created this layout of my parents from a cruise they took in 1979, I jammed out to Sirius/XM 70's on was groovy! I heard both Dire Straits Sultans of Swing and Michael Jackson's Can't Stop I Get Enough which are from 1979 the year of this cruise.  I remember staying with my grandparents while my parents were on this trip.
