Trace Adkins

Free Drinks Won't Fix Our Ruined Cruise

Some Trace Adkins fans are pissed ... bitching that Trace ruined their country cruise by jumping ship in Jamaica  ... and all they got in return were concert tix.

We broke the story ... Trace got into a nuclear argument with an impersonator on board the ship ... and left the big boat for rehab.

Passengers feel  ... cruise officials lied to them and said Trace left for a family emergency  --  and tried to placate them with an hour-long open bar.

One woman posted on Facebook, "[Trace] gets shipped off and we get replaced by an hr of free sh**ty watered down well drinks for one hour ... What a JOKE!"

We're told ... Trace's camp is now trying to make good by offering passengers free tickets and a meet-and-greet at a future concert.  For some fans, it's awesome.

But others -- who paid thousands to go on the cruise -- say they can't collect ... because they came from faraway places -- even foreign countries.

FYI ... the free tix don't come with an all-you-can-eat buffet.

As a recovering alcoholic, I APPLAUD trace adkins for doing what he did. His so-called fans apparently don't give a **** about him anyways. GOOD FOR YOU TRACE ADKINS! i usually don't listen to country, but I'll definitely support him now.

Well technically he did leave for a family emergency, his own.

I guess I'm confused as to why the passengers who aren't fans are pissed..They didn't go on the ship to see him, so what difference is it that he's no longer on it? If the free meet and greet and open bar event are good enough for his fans who did go to see him, then it should be good enough for those who didn't even care that he was on it in the first place...Unless TMZ meant fans who live far away can't participate, I don't see the problem.

Tell it like it is TMZ. Trace Adkins is a drunk. He was drunk the entire time he was on that boat. HE started a fight with a fan because Adkins is a drunk. He left because he is a drunk.
.
TMZ - stick to what you know. Kissing Fat Kim's grotesquely misshapen ass and trying to cover up that Kanye West beat up the only man he could find - a 140 pound mentally ill man.

I was on that cruise and never once heard anybody complain about Trace leaving. Everybody was concerned about him and very respectful of the situation. We did not let it stop our fun. Maybe people should focus on the good things this man has done, such as donating millions of dollars to Red Cross and Wounded Warriors. Think about all of the times he went overseas to entertain our troops, etc. He has survived shootings, wrecks, an oil rig explosion, his house burning down, and he will survive this. He is human and that ship has to be the hardest place on earth for any alcoholic to survive. These were his fans on that boat & I never saw anything but understanding and compassion for him.

There's a problem here    

If those people put out all that coin for a cruise specifically because Trace Adkins was on the ship they deserve to get ripped off. Why not just go to a concert and save a few thou?
