    Legendary singer Frankie Avalon will return to the Malt Shop Memories cruise for his second voyage when the ship sets sail on Oct. 27. The luxury liner will travel from Fort Lauderdale to Turks & Caicos, San Juan, St. Thomas and Half Moon Cay before it returns on Nov. 3. What a fun way to spend the fall on the high seas.

    Avalon, along with many other icons from the '50s and '60s, will perform and make special appearances throughout the journey. Special early reservation rates are now available through April 30.

    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 some of Avalon's longtime friends such as Dion (who will be making a special appearance in concert on the cruise), Bobby Rydell, Ronnie Spector, Darlene Love, The Original Drifters, The Duprees, Sonny Turner (former lead singer of the Platters), Carl Gardner's Coasters, Kenny Vance & the Planotones, The Chiffons, The Tymes, The Marvelettes, Al "Lil Fats" Jackson, John Kuse and the Excellents, The Dedications, The Encounters, The Acchords, Gino Monopoli/Dwight Icenhower and, returning as the cruise host, the wildly popular oldies DJ Jerry "The Geator with the Heater" Blavat.

    In addition to the incredible line-up of concerts, The Malt Shop Memories cruise will offer non-stop events, parties and '50s and '60s-themed activities throughout the ship and the entire length of the cruise. Be there or be square, sock hoppers!

    If you miss this era of music and of idyllic life, then hop on board and set sail.

    Tickets for the cruise are available now. Visit www.MaltShopCruise.com or call (877) 700-6258 (MALT). Cabin prices start at $1550 per person including all meals, entertainment and onboard activities.

    Are you a fan of the Malt Shop era? Do you like cruises? So what's stopping ya?
