THERE has been a huge growth in cruise holidays around the world and the concept of themed cruises is becoming ever-more popular.
For the first time, Chris King who promotes the ever-popular Festival of Legends (which Euro Weekly News is delighted to support) arranged a Festival of Legends cruise which welcomed no less than 230 dedicated music fans on board the Zenith for an eight-day journey around the Mediterranean.
The vessel left Malaga en route to Alicante, Rome, Livorno, Monaco and back with a large number of incredibly popular and versatile tribute acts including (in no particular order), Elton John, Michael Jackson, Frank Sinatra, Freddie Mercury, Elvis Presley, Michael Bublé, Robbie Williams and Rod Stewart.
Music and the Mediterranean make fine partners but it wasn’t just about the cruise, there was plenty of sightseeing and as can be seen from the pictures, whilst it wasn’t possible for EWN to be present, we were certainly there in spirit and it is fair to say that Euro Weekly News is THE newspaper that reaches areas no other paper can reach!
On the return to Malaga, Chris King said “We have had a spectacular cruise Festival of Legends and already 40 rooms have been booked for our next cruise!”
So successful was this first cruise that three more are being planned for 2017, with one honouring the Beatles as it is the 50th anniversary of Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, one celebrating Elvis on the 40th anniversary of his death and a third which will bring together another group of Legends of all types on a journey that leaves from Malaga and heads for Italy with some new ports of call.
Further details will be announced on www.thefestivaloflegends.com but once again, EWN will be supporting not just the cruises but all of the concerts which are planned on dry land for the coming year.
