Beatles-Themed Cruise to Launch in 2013
With music festival cruises being all the rage these days, it makes sense that there would be a cruise dedicated to the most popular group of all-time. In March 2013, the Cruise for Beatles Fans will sail from Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. on the sea of green for a week-long floating celebration of all things John, Paul, George and Ringo.
This magical mystery tour will not take place in a yellow submarine, but rather on Royal Caribbean's 5,400-passenger Allure of the Seas. Stops will be made at Nassau, Bahamas (where the Beatles filmed part of 'Help!'); St. Thomas and St. Maarten before returning to Florida.
Along the way passengers will be treated to performances and question-and-answer sessions with producer Mark Hudson, Badfinger's Joey Molland and Billy J. Kramer, who recorded several Lennon-McCartney songs. There will also be trivia contests and a performance from Revolution, a Beatles tribute band. Joe Johnson, host of the syndicated radio show 'Beatle Brunch' will be the master of ceremonies.
Packages start at $1,354 and go up to $3,764 for the most expensive suites. More details can be found at the cruise's website.
