Beatles Tribute Cruise 2011

By guest blogger Steve Newman

We always like to highlight some of the more offbeat and unusual cruise stories here at Time Spent At Sea (along with all the best cruise deals and special offers!), and here is something that fits the bill perfectly - The Beatles Tribute Cruise 2011, which, we are told, has started booking their guests and already has a stellar line-up.

This starts off with the two-time Grammy Award Winner and former Wings lead guitarist Laurence Juber. LJ's incredible solo acoustic guitar work will be on display during two separate and intimate concerts during the 8-night cruise. LJ will also conduct a Beatles Guitar Workshop and offer private lessons to cruisers. The band Yesterday - A Tribute To the Beatles will be aboard and they'll rock out with three different concerts and have their own Beatles Guitar Workshop.
Also joining will be:
Tony Bramwell - long time Beatles friend, right hand man to Brian Epstein at NEMS and the author of Magical Mystery Tours - My Life With the Beatles; Shannon - "the World's Greatest Beatles Artist"; Tony Perkins - former Good Morning America host who interviewed Ringo, Olivia Harrison and Yoko Ono; and it would not be the Beatles Tribute Cruise without Joe Johnson, the host and creator of Beatle Brunch, the nationally syndicated and longest running Beatles radio show.

The BTC 2011 sets sail from Miami on March 5 aboard Royal Caribbean's Liberty of the Seas for 8 nights and will make stops in San Juan, St Martin, St Thomas and Labadee.

This is a chartered cruise and www.beatlestributecruise.com/register.htm tells you all about it and how the cruise must be booked so you can be party to all the Beatles elements that are included in the package.
