After the extraordinary success of the first two Malt Shop Memories Cruises, the next annual Malt Shop Memories Cruise will expand to a seven-day trip with more ports of call and additional performances by an array of stars from the ‘50s and ‘60s. Departing on October 27th, 2012(through November 3rd) from Fort Lauderdale, FL, the cruise will set sail on Holland America’s m/s Eurodam for Turks & Caicos, San Juan, St. Thomas and the private island of Half Moon Cay. As a full ship charter, the Eurodam will be transformed into a floating ‘50s and ‘60s entertainment complex, treating passengers to concerts and special events such as sock hops, hula hoop contests, prom night, beach parties, and will be host to an Elvis Tribute Artist Contest. Inspired by Time Life’s popular Malt Shop Memories CD series, the voyage will be highlighted by performances by some of the biggest artists of the era, including Dion, Frankie Avalon, Bobby Rydell, Ronnie Spector, Darlene Love, The Original Drifters, Sonny Turner (former lead singer of the Platters), Carl Gardner’s Coasters, Kenny Vance and the Planotones, The Chiffons, and The Marvelettes. “You’ll see some of the best entertainment from that wonderful era,” says Bobby Rydell. “Mix and mingle with all of us and bring back those great memories while making fabulous new ones.” The Executive Producer of Time Life’s Malt Shop Memories CD collection, Alan Rubens notes, “They say you can’t live in the past—but it sure is fun visiting for a few days!” The Time Life Malt Shop Memories CD collection, featuring a 10-CD box set, a 4-CD set and a holiday disc, has sold nearly 4 million CDs and remains one of Time Life’s most popular sellers. The Malt Shop Memories Cruise was developed in association with Entertainment Cruise Productions, LLC. For more information, visit www.MaltShopCruise.com or call (877) 700-6258 (MALT).
