Obsess Over The Beatles 'Eight Days a Week' on The Tribute Cruise

Were you curious about Oxford University's mini-program this summer featuring an entire class on The Beatles? but want something less academic and stuffy? The Beatles Tribute Cruise has come to your rescue.

The cruise will set sail on March 28 for one week, departing from Fort Lauderdale and making stops in Belize and Costa Maya and Cozumel in Mexico. And it's bound to be populated by the middle-aged versions of fanboys and girls.

The cruise will feature some of the most important people on the fringes of the Beatles stardom like May Pang, Yoko Ono's assistant who famously hooked up with John Lennon on his "Lost Weekend" in LA. Additionally, Paul Saltzman, the photographer who captured the Beatles during their retreat to Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's ashram in India will be cruising as well as Shannon, the Beatles artist who did all the artwork at the Hard Day's Night Hotel in Liverpool.

And of course, a tribute band called BritBeat that hails not Liverpool, but from Chicago:

Complete with mop tops, retro costumes, vintage instruments, and harmonizing vocals, BritBeat catapults audiences back to 1964 as America’s premier Tribute to the Beatles with the most authentic recreation of the greatest rock and roll group of all time.

BritBeat performs all of the memorable Beatle hits from the 1960s with British style, charisma and Liverpudlian character to create the ultimate concert and theatrical experience.

Embodying the same youthful excitement and boyish charm as the original 'Fab Four,' BritBeat recreates the electrifying performances first brought to stage by the Beatles when they invaded the American scene and instigated the craze fondly-known as 'Beatlemania'.

The cost of the cruise starts at $899 but the event fee registration is $347 per person. This is what will get you into all Beatles events from the concerts to the lectures and cocktail parties. And you have to buy this first before you can buy your cruise ticket.

Jaunted is currently checking our bank account and wondering if it is ok to makeout with "John Lennon" from BritBeat.
