Beatles Tribute Cruise
A Beatles Vacation to Remember!
and our friends are all aboard...

Beatles Cruise ad and May Pang are hosting a 6-night Western Caribbean cruise on Royal Caribbean’s newest and most luxurious ship, The Independence of the Seas.

We set sail from Ft. Lauderdale on 3/28/10 and will be visiting Belize City, Cozumel and Costa Maya – but the real party is onboard with a live Beatle band and very special guests and events.

Joining the festivities are: John Lennon’s former girlfriend and production assistant, May Pang (author of Instamatic Karma); Ringo Starr’s fiancée Nancy Lee Andrews (author of A Dose of Rock ‘N’ Roll); Paul McCartney's photographer Jorie Gracen (author of I Saw Him Standing There); photographer Paul Saltzman (author of The Beatles In India); Chris O'Dell (Apple insider and author of Miss O'Dell: My Hard Days and Long Nights with The Beatles, The Stones, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton and the Women They Loved); Joe Johnson, radio personality and host of nationally syndicated show BeatleBrunch; and world renowned artist Beatles "Shannon". Live Beatle music provided by BritBeat.

Special events include:
  • Opening Night/Open Bar “Meet and Greet” Party with our special guests
  • Beatles Trivia Contest (hosted by Joe Johnson of the nationally syndicated radio show Beatles Brunch) with great Beatles prizes
  • “In The Studio/Karaoke” Session
  • Q&A sessions with May Pang, Nancy Andrews, Chris O'Dell, and Jorie Gracen, plus picture/autograph sessions
  • Exclusive photographs, artwork and books available for purchase

All Royal Carribean amenities are available: 5-Star White Glove “All-You-Can-Eat” Dining; 24-hour buffet; private meals at Chops Steakhouse or Portofino Italian Restaurant; Johnny Rockets, Ben and Jerry’s and a pizza parlor.

Unlike any “conventional” Beatles convention… A splendid time is guaranteed for all!

Woody Lifton - Beatles Cruise About the Author - Woody Lifton

First generation Beatles fan, who's passion for the unusual led him to collect hundreds of alternate studio takes and live Beatles performances. This led to the creation of what has been called "The Beatles radio series ever" Pop Go The Beatles which he created as a one-man band. After having the show banned by EMI/Captiol, he turned his creative energies to building the Biggest, Best and Most Unusual Beatles Website When Woody's neighbor, a travel agent and Beatles fan saw the website she said...let's do a Beatles Themed cruise...and so the Beatles Tribute Cruise was born.
