Heres a few comments:
I thoroughly enjoyed the Beatles Tribute Cruise. When I closed
my eyes, the group Yesterday sounded just like the
Beatles. Laurence Juber was mesmerizing and I got quite an education,
not just the technical methods of playing, but playing from the
heart. Tony Perkins shared some fun GMA video moments with Ringo,
Tony Bramwell told some of the greatest personal stories of his
friendship with the Beatles and Shannon McDonald ... what an artist!
This is the second Beatles Tribute Cruise that Ive been
on and they keep getting better. Sandi
Janis and I are celebrating 35 years together this year, we
take a large trip every 5 years on our anniversary, along with
lots of small ones in between. Although I have never regretted
any of our vacation expenses, only a few have I felt that I have
received more than my moneys worth. This trip, by far, exceeded
all my expectations. We can't wait for the next BTC, don't know
how you will beat 2011. The smiles in the photos with all of you
tell the story of just how truly excited and happy Janis was getting
her Beatle fix. Bill & Janis
We had such a wonderful time getting to know you and all the "regulars"
and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. You guys out did yourselves
in planning all the Beatle activities and were very generous with
the prizes too! It was so much fun we would have paid for it (but
we were glad it was free!!). All the guests were fantastic too
- mind-blowing, as a matter of fact, how accessible they all were
and graciously letting us take their picture and signing autographs.
