2015 JazzSea Caribbean Cruise - MS Ryndam, Jan. 18 - 25

After taking one year off, JazzSea cruises arranged a wonderful 7- day cruise leaving from Tampa, Florida, to the western Caribbean, including Key West, Honduras, Guatemala, and Costa Maya Mexico, aboard Holland America's MS Ryndam cruise ship.
I had many opportunities to perform, on my own and with various bands - lots of fun! The Banjos Aweigh band had 35 players, making music on their banjos,  harmonicas, drums, tuba, trombone, clarinet, ukuleles, and washboards. It was especially enjoyable for my wife and me since we had many friends on board.
 Next year's 10 - day south Caribbean cruise, Jan. 8 - 18, 2016,  aboard the Holland America MS Oosterdam should be great trip.  Check out www.jazzsea.com for further information.
