The 1st Annual Piano World Piano Lover's Cruise is under way.

We're in Labadee (in the Caribbean) at the moment.
Ship is wonderful!
Ocean has been like glass, weather perfect.

We have our own meeting room for at-sea days, 14th deck, gorgeous view, and a nice Yamaha C3 grand.
Yesterday was an at-sea day so we spent about 4 hours playing and chatting.

here is a video of one of our members on the cruise playing us some tunes (A441, aka Jeremy Gloo)...



Everyone seems to be having a great time, wish you were here :-)
(Next time?)

See Lots More Pictures Below...

Would that I could get back down to that weight :-)

It really was a great time.

Our next outing is starting to shape up (2011 European tour).
I hope to have some more information soon.

And we will certainly do another cruise.

Hi Dot,

The cruise was a lot of fun, but for Europe we are going to do a land tour first.

Working on our 2011 European Tour of Piano Makers as we speak ...
