I met you on a Holland America cruise and enjoyed listening to your piano playing so much. It really made my week.

Connie Palmer

January 11, 2009

Just looked at the video of my Caribbean Cruise on the Veendam in 07--got you playing in the piano bar---was with my friend "Connie"--you called us the two Connies. Anyway, I'm going on another same area cruise on the Noordam in Feb. & was checking to see if per chance you were going to be on the ship. Darn, you're the best piano bar entertainment I've ever had on a ship. At least I do have you "Moonglow" CD. Hope to run into you again someday on another cruise. Connie

Hello! Good site, simply super!

May 6, 2008 -

Meeting JP Nadeau on the 24 April-5 May Maasdam cruise was a fantastic experience! What an ARTIST, ENTERTAINER and TERRIFIC PERSON! My usual evening routine during this cruise was dinner, show, and then sit at the Piano Bar at least until midnight. (I even had my own reserved seat). I had never visited the piano bar on our previous cruises, but now that I've experienced the talents and personality of JP, I know that when I try out the piano bar on future cruises, I'll be thinking --- Rememeber how JP sang this song? I'm sure hoping that we'll be able to sit at his piano bar (no matter what time of evening -- or early morning) and enjoy his talents once again! (I'm trying to figure out how I can get to Seoul, Korea.)Echoing many of the previous comments, meeting JP and listening to him on the piano, were one of the highlights of our cruise. (If there are any other Piano Bar patrons from this cruise, I'd love to hear from you.

J.P. -- Gilda & I truly enjoyed meeting you on the Maasdam (Jazz Cruise + following cruise) this year. You were the highlight of our cruise ---- I will listen to your CD's on my trips from 'the Falls', up to Edmundston to work at Frasers, and remember a marvelous cruise, and a very talented musician!!

All the best, my friend!


January 28, 2008

oh lordy, lordy... i finally got the nerve to find you. (lack of computer skills) where is the picture of you and the donkey in mykonos? john and i stopped there - he decided to go to delos (big mistake) when he came off that excursion i had found a beautiful necklace in mykonos and the rest is history. after reading all these comments from your fellow passengers i want to hop ship pronto. you were the greatest thing to happen on our cruise to the antarctica and all the places along the way. balderdash (sp) was the greatest not to mention the cocktails that came with the game. so happy you're going strong because any ship that would not hire you would have to be off their rocker!!!!! can't believe how fast the time has flown. we have your cd's playing more than you know and in hawaii john's i-pod just got stuck on all your songs and we had a good giggle. planning on wearing the "shirt" to a party next week. your the best and for all of you out there who have had the chance to listen, spend time with or just laugh along with jp - it's a blessing. we miss you lots. christina and john

We just met J.P. for the first time on the Rotterdam cruise from Athens on 9/6. I was really impressed with your versatility and piano virtuosity! (Like that word?!) Anyway, I bought your album, which I like. Just a suggestion - you should record an album of standards and an album of blues.

Anyway, I think it's funny that I have a son PJ - and my name is Natalie like your daughter. Something to ponder when you have nothing else to think about.

Oh JP what a fabulous contract you currently have which takes you to world famous places and you can actually stand in those footprints of long ago. I always think back to our mad dash to the border to get you back aboard your ship which you had missed in Seattle....this escapade brings a big smile to my face and a hearty chuckle. I heard you mention your family often and was glad to see you had them with you when you celebrated the new year together last January. Now tey can see what your fans love about your music aboard the ships...absolutely rockus!!

Hi JP,

LOL, just got home last night and couldn't wait to check out your site. Super!

We listened to your CD, Moonglow, on the way home from the absolute MUST have for anyone who wants to continue the memories of an evening with you!

What a treat to enjoy your talent and company on the New Year's Cruise on the Veendam and a special delight to have our supper seating with your family. We thoroughly enjoyed them (lol, and you when you could join us). You don't always get to choose who will be at your table so we were really lucky :)

Will keep up with where you are 'cuz we sure want to enjoy your GREAT entertainment again in person. I told Maggy that I had overheard another cruiser mention that they were on the cruise to see YOU not just to cruise and I thought that was interesting... now I know why ;)

Best of everything for the New Year to you and your girls ;)

Great pics, Jape and what a fanbase. There's a great forum going on CruiseCritic-check it out everyone and leave a comment


February 24, 2006

could not enter this on HAL so I am sending to you instead.
During my first cruise on the Veendam two years ago, I had the pleasure of spending the evenings in the piano bar with JP Nadeau into the wee hours of the morning. JP could and did play and sing anything you requested. I found it so interesting that this Piano Man had friends from around the world that followed him NOT the cruise line. What a mistake for HAL to let go of such an entertaining gem. If HAL asked the consumer or read the passenger postings, they would come to realize that repeat cruisers want something that made the previous cruise experience a fantasy for them. It is obvious to me that JP developed the kinds of relationships that are financially valuable to HAL.

When I share pictures of my cruise, they begin with the Piano Bar and the friends I made while I was there. Every evening was different and held new possibilities to improve on the fantasy cruise. Formal nights there were the best. To meet with people dressed in beautiful evening attire listening to their favorite songs played by JP for what they perceived as being just for them.

Even though JP may be thrilling other people in exotic places in the world I have not booked another cruise on HAL since I found out JP was no longer there to enhance my evenings with his gift of music and his charm. I somehow think it would be too sad to board the Veendam knowing JP would not be smiling at every person who came into the room from the piano. He has a way of encouraging friendships to develop between complete strangers in a way no other staff on board was able to do.

Since I will not be going to Korea anytime soon, I can only hope he will come back to HAL one day and we can catch him again onboard. IMHO he is the best!

Now that's a bio! What a story and it was such fun reading. Thanks for the Valentine's card also. Read about you on Cruise Critic also ....... the cruise industry is "mssing the boat" and I hope that someone picks up a contract for you really soon. Whenever and wherever that is we will be there, you can count on it! We never had as much fun on a cruise as we did with you on the Island Princess to Hawaii. Rember the lava flows that night ... so beautiful! You take care and keep in touch. Great website.

We lova ya JP!

I tried emailing you at this address and found that this site is the only way to communicate. I'm very impressed with what you have on this site and congratulate you for being such a popular man who has really really arrived!
I did send you Valentine's greetings yesterday and was wondering if the Koreans celebrate a bit like we do in the states. Where else have you traveled in the Far East and do you know the location of your next gig? Stay in touch.......I'm sure you have tons of emails from all your fans so know that I enjoyed your cards and the Valentine's greetings.
Your partner in a memorable crime................Marilyn

Still enjoying your both of your CD's and wishing you would do another.

Take care buddy and say hi to Vicky for me!!


January 18, 2006

Hi Big Guy,

Nice web site, knew you could do it if you put your mind to it. They can be kind of fun to design but frustrating too. I know it will just get better and better as you work on it. Looking for lots of those amazing shots you take with that digital camera. So you got a two month extension in S. Korea huh, I know your happy and knocking them dead over there but I'm so sad cause I miss seeing you. CD's are great but nothing like the real thing!!

Vicky Davis

Good luck!


January 16, 2006

Hi JD,
Thanks for sending your new website & keeping in touch. Still listen to your CD "Moonglow" all the time. Love it! Can't wait for you to add more photos. RoSe :)

Way to go JP. I know you are wowing them in Korea, but hope you are back on the cruise scene at some point. I still enjoy both your CD's.
