Default Beatles Tribute Cruise

Would you book this cruise? Is it a big enough draw to make you cruise a huge ship, you might not have wanted to sail?

Oh wow, if I could afford it, I would SO book this cruise!!
Interesting, Mark Hudson (billed on the cruise as a producer for Ringo) is formerly of the Hudson Brothers band, also brother of Bill Hudson, father of actress Kate Hudson (mother Goldie Hawn). Got that?

Yeah - if I lived in the US - yeah I would consider it except the cruise is from FLL??

I have cruised out of FLL - an experience I would not want to repeat.

Hi Trip

I had no issues at all but I would never return to FLL. I would rather cruise in/out of Miami - just my preference.

I always pre or post-cruise; the city held no appeal at all.

Hard to believe 50 yrs. since Beatles first came here! I was in high school and had a pen pal in England. She sent me magazines, telling me about them, how they would come to the US! I cut them up put the pictures on my closet doors! Now I wish I would have saved them!

In 1989 Beatlemania opened in NYC . The role of Paul McCartney was played by Mitch Weissman . If you listen to him with your eyes closed you will swear you are listening to Paul .

McCarthy has said there is nobody better than Mitch (other than himself) .

I certainly agree with you. I am a Beatles fan and I love the Allure.

I am sailing o0n the Oasis in April, otherwise I would consider this cruise.

I doubt that I would book this cruise. I loved the Beatles as a kid and over the years I have been to a couple of performances by 1964 The Tribute. A Beatles tribute band that performs in NH. I just think a whole week of this would be a bit much for me.

I sailed on a cruise with this same band and the same radio host. It was on the Radisson Diamond and there were a total of 144 guests (including the band). The ship was supposed to sail in the Med summer of 2003 but they kept it in the Caribbean because of the war. This was a relatively last minute decision so they didn't have much chance to market the ship. The Diamond at capacity was only 300 pax so a small ship to start with. We met a couple of couples on board and the women had a great time sitting in the front row of the shows just screaming.

The band had both early and late Beatles wigs/costumes so it was interesting to see the different shows and how the Beatles evolved.

We had a great time.
