Our pick for best dancing cruises

dance cruisesDance Cruises : If dancing puts you in your happy place, then dancing on a cruise can be a quick step to bliss. Why? Cruise ships offer dance aficionados a wide variety of enticing venues. From trendy nightclubs playing the latest club music to posh, outdoor dancing under the stars, elegant ballrooms and many dance lounge in between. Plus, themed dance cruises can be a great place to find dance hosts and instructors and improve your dancing skills while meeting others who love to dance. (Look to charter companies like Dancing at Sea and Dancers at Sea for upcoming sailings.)
Whether your idea of dancing is to shimmy, shake, sway, rock, cut a rug or shake your bum, you’re sure to have fun on one of our favorite cruise lines for dancing at sea.


The Trophy Goes to: Norwegian Cruise Line’s Norwegian Escape, Norwegian Getaway, Norwegian Breakaway, Norwegian Pearl, Norwegian Gem and Norwegian Epic
Why: It’s hard to beat Norwegian when it comes to nightlife, and its Bliss Ultra Lounge, a decadent Vegas-like club, is a winner. Don’t miss Broadway dance show “Burn the Floor” on Norwegian Epic, Breakaway and Getaway for inspiration.
Norwegian’s newest and biggest ships (Breakaway, Getaway, Escape) feature the Glow Party. It typically takes place in Spice H2O, the adults-only sun deck, though it’s often a family-friendly event. Come early to get your face decorated with paint that glows under the black lights. Be sure to wear white or fluorescent clothing so you’ll glow, too. Entertainment staffers will hand out a limited supply of glow sticks, but it’s best to bring your own.
