Learn more about Patty Smyth:
By Steve Spears

When Patty Smyth & Scandal step on board the Explorer of the Seas next March for the 2020 voyage of The 80s Cruise, the singer/songwriter will be bringing along a career full of hits that surpasses our beloved decade.

"Goodbye To You" and "The Warrior" will be the heart-pounding, foot-stomping anthems that cruise guests will jump to their feet to savor, but Patty enjoyed continued chart success after Scandal parted ways in the late 80s. In fact, two of her best-known duets —  "Sometimes Love Just Ain't Enough" with Don Henley and "Look What Love Has Done" with James Ingram — dazzled fans in the early 90s.

On The 80s Cruise, expect Patty and her bandmates to bring an eclectic mix of rock, pop and ballads to the stage. And while you brush up on her music before we set sail, CLICK HERE to learn three more things you probably didn't know about Patty Smyth and Scandal.
Patty Smyth in the Spotlight
Let's hear directly from Patty, the proud New Yorker who will cruise for the first time in her life on The 80s Cruise.
CRUISE NEWS: How did your personal 80s experience influence you as an individual and as an artist?
SMYTH: I was born and raised in NYC. New York in the 80s was pretty hardcore. I think I had a confidence and a good bluff from having to live through so much. It also was a time of so much fun, so many great dance clubs, so I was happy and tough.
CRUISE NEWS: What is your favorite 80s band, 80s fashion statement, and 80s movie or TV show?
SMYTH: I didn't watch a lot of TV in the 80s. I did like SNL, Letterman back when he had a daytime show, Murphy Brown, and The Clash.
CRUISE NEWS: What would you like to bring back from the 80s?
SMYTH: The grit that New York has lost and the amazing art scene.
CRUISE NEWS: What is something that is around today that should have stayed in the 80s?
SMYTH: Black spandex shorts on grown men.
CRUISE NEWS: We know you are a great artist, what other amazing talent do you have that we don't know about? 
SMYTH: I'm a decent cook, I'm a good mom, and I have a good eye for art.

CRUISE NEWS: What are you most looking forward to on The 80s Cruise '20?
SMYTH: The fans and playing the show — it's my first cruise ever!
