4th Annual floating with friends dance cruise

March 8-15, 2020

Join fellow dancers for a ballroom and swing dance cruise on board Holland America’s newest ship, the Nieuw Statendam, as we escape Winter and embark on a 7 night cruise to the Bahamas and the Caribbean from March 8-15, 2020! Make new friends, improve your dancing and create memories that will last a lifetime!

Whether you are a competitive ballroom dancer or a social dancer, there will be dance classes tailored to your level taught by our award-winning dance professionals. We will have 12 group classes in a variety of ballroom and swing dance styles, 6 hours of supervised dance practice (including the opportunity to dance with the instructors if you don’t have a partner), plus optional private lessons. This is YOUR dance vacation, so attend as many (or as few) of the classes and practices as you want.

All of our classes and practice sessions will take place in the amazing Queen’s Lounge, one of the largest dance floors at sea. Take a look at the gorgeous ballroom:

For our ports, we will stop in:

  • Half Moon Cay in the Bahamas, for a fantastic beach day,

  • Grand Turk, home to terrific snorkeling and scuba diving at one of the largest coral reefs in the world,

  • Amber Cove, a dedicated private cruise resort area in the Caribbean, which also has a variety of cultural and outdoor activities, and

  • Key West, home to Hemingway and the southernmost point of the continental US.

On sea days, when you aren’t dancing, take advantage of the wide variety of activities aboard the Nieuw Statendam including the spa, fitness facilities, indoor and outdoor pools and enrichment offerings. Every evening join your new friends and dance partners as we explore the multiple music venues on the ship and dance the night away. The Nieuw Statendam features the B.B. King’s Blues Club with an incredible live band, the Rolling Stone Rock Room for rock and roll music, Billboard Onboard for sing-along dueling pianos, and classical and ballroom music courtesy of a partnership with Lincoln Center. Plus, there are nightly shows with an incredibly talented cast of singers and dancers, ranging from small cabaret-style performances, to full-scale multi-media productions. Learn more about our dance program, cruise ports and daily itinerary.

For those of you who compete and want to continue to prepare for upcoming dance competitions while you enjoy some hard-earned relaxation, there will be open floor time available most days.  And if you are someone who plans to compete every year at the New York Dance Festival, don’t worry - we don’t leave until the weekend AFTER - so work hard, burn the floor at NYDF, and then come cruise with us!

In addition to the full dance program included in the price, guests of the 4th Annual Floating With Friends Dance Cruise will enjoy a welcome cocktail party, complimentary beverage card, access to a private villa in the Bahamas, complimentary pre-paid gratuities, plus many other exclusive amenities and surprises.

We look forward to dancing with you on board!
