This is too good to let it be lost in the archives.  How much fun is the idea of cruising Hawaii and learning to play the Ukulele while at sea?  It’s the vacation that keeps on giving after you return home.  Keep strumming through life until you can return to Hawaii.  

The original episode and show notes can be found here: https://www.travelradiopodcast.com/podcast/episode/22c394b6/ukulele-cruise-on-ruby-princess-with-hawaiian-ambassadors-brian-and-rowena-vasquez

Guests Brian and Rowena Vasquez are ambassadors of Aloha.  In pre-Covid times they lived on cruise ships half of the year teaching ukulele and hula dancing.  Rowena also give cultural lectures on the native life and heritage of the Hawaiian people and islands.  

Currently, Brian and Rowena are at home in Las Vegas. Although they are not on a boat they are still teaching both ukulele and hula.  My children start their lessons today (Dec 15th). I am participating in their lessons and ukulele play along clubs.   We have so much fun!  Join us! 

Ukulele’s can be purchased from this website also.  They are manufactured to Brian’s standards.  We have two for our family. They are gorgeous and sound amazing.  I make no money off this endorsement.  I just like high end instruments and this fit the bill!
