For the last four years we have enjoyed doing the 50's, 60's and 70's Concerts at Sea Cruises. For the "2009" cruise we enjoyed the concerts of Bobby Vee and the Vees, Paul Revere and the Raiders, The Guess Who, The Orignial Comets and Jan & Dean featuring Dean Torrence. As usual we had a great time, dancing every night with the dee jays and at Mike Harveys sockhop. Everyday we were doing something; trivia games put on by Jimmy Jay of Rewind, autograph signing, questions and answers with the band members, house band; "The Fabulous Chancellors" and an Elvis inpersonator. If this wasn't enough you still had your shore excursions, formal night and other things the cruise ship had to offer.
