2014 DANCE CRUISES:
Join Vivian and dancers from around the country on one of our luxury cruises on the most famous ocean liners in the world and the number one river cruise line. We have chosen the Cunard Cruise Line for our ocean cruises because in our experience, it offers the best amenities for ballroom dancers: real ballrooms with the largest dance floor at sea, high-level dance teachers, dancehosts and real ballroom, swing, and Latin bands and DJs on every cruise. We chose Viking River Cruises because of the Viking way of first class luxury river cruising. Our travel club rarely goes to the same place twice. Rather than visit the Caribbean over and over again, our goal is to see the world by dancing from location to location in luxury.
Here are our best choices for 2013/2014:
1/24/14: RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL to VALPARAISO, CHILE: 16 days on Cunards Queen Victoria including Montevideo, Buenow Aires, Puerto Madryn, Cape Horn, Ushuaia, Punto Arenas, Amalia Glacier, PioX Glacier, Perto Montt. (Will sell out soon--part of the world tour!)
4/5/14: SINGAPORE to DUBAI: 14 days on Cunards Queen Elizabeth with stops in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; Penang, Malaysia; Colombo, Sri Lanka; Mumbai, India; Abu Dhabi, UAE; overnight in Dubai, UAE (Will sell out soon--part of the world tour!)
In addition to these cruises, we have arranged for group rates for the following trips. These are not official escorted dance cruises, but all the Cunard cruises will have all the great dance amenities normally provided by Cunard.
Jan.-May 2014 WORLD TOURS on one of the Cunard Queens. Call for options and rates. (World tours sell out 6-9 months in advance and many 2014 options are already wait-listed. Do not wait and be disappointed.)
1/12/2014: Ft. Lauderdale, Florida to Buenos Aires, Argentina: 16 days on Cunards Queen Victoria with stops in Bridgetown, Barbados; Fortaleza, Brazil; Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; Montevideo, Uraguay; ending in Buenos Aires. (Will sell out soon--part of the world tour!)
While we have great group rates, regional promotions and past passenger discounts, as well as occasional flash sales, may get you an even better deal. When calling, supply all passengers names, World Club ID (if you have one), and your city of departure, as well as your preferred cabin type: inside, outside, balcony, or suite. Do not forget your contact information. We will help you find a cabin mate. We currently have several men and women looking for a cabin mate on one or more ot these cruises.
