Calling all Usher, Hip Hop, NSYNC Fanatics & more!

Strut your stuff in our Summer Dance Cruise Series!

We’ve curated 4 fabulous evenings for diehard fans to learn the classic choreo from your favorite star’s videos and live performances.

Our 2024 Lineup includes:

  • June 27th - NSYNC!: A Y2K Boybands Inspired Dance Cruise
  • July 11th - Janet to MJ: A Janet & Michael Jackson Inspired Dance Cruise
  • August 7th - Hip Hop Divas: The Women in Hip Hop Inspired Dance Cruise
  • September 5th - Yeah! Cruise: The Usher Inspired Dance Cruise

What happens on board?

You'll learn a dance routine made famous by the star we're celebrating, lead by our Pop Choreography Expert, Byron Freeman from B. Free Dance. Once you slayed that routine, let loose during the free-for-all final hour while we dance the rest of the night away while sailing alongside the best city views at sunset!

That's not all... we pack the night with costume contests, themed signature cocktails inspired by your favorite star, free onboard photobooth & incredible photo ops!

What if I don't dance?

The dance class is optional, so if it's not your thing, just sit back, relax & hype up the participants on board! But we know if Bey can do it, we can do it! These sessions are meant to be fun and geared towards beginners and for all ages! Plus, when in doubt, just twerk it out.
