If you were on last year's Cruise to Hawaii with Reiner Kirsten or you missed it and want to go this year, here are all the details for the Oktoberfest Cruise that has been planned for 2009 by Ted Hierl. This year's cruise is definitely a don't miss event. Ted Hierl, the top German Radio Show Host on the East Coast, has organized these cruises for over 20 years and this cruise promises to be another great vacation. This year the popular German group, the Original Naabtal Duo, will be featured. It has been 20 years since they won the Grand Prix der Volksmusik with the now famous volksmusik hit, Patrona Bavariae, which was written by Gunther Behrle. But they have many more hits, and if you click the links on the sidebar you can go to YouTube to see and hear them perform those hits. You will have the opportunity to speak personally to Wolfgang Edenharder & Willi Seitz after the show, or if you are lucky enough to see them on board the ship, they would love to talk to their fans.

The cruise runs 10 nights starting on October 25, 2009 leaving Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on the Ruby Princess. You will visit ports like: Bonaire, Netherlands Antilles, Grenada, Dominica, St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands, and the Princess Cays. Bahamas. Prices start at $1,074 per person.

Your cruise package includes 4 shows. For the Welcome Party the Elstertaler Musikanten will again be playing for your dancing pleasure. Andre has become very popular with past cruisers and always gets the Stimmung going. The 2nd & 3rd shows feature the Naabtal Duo performing their present & past hits.
