Can’t believe you left this one out, don’t you have a love of NYC?

What started as a group of 125 friends going on a cruise in 2004 has erupted in to the world’s largest fully charted dance music cruise experience. The Groove Cruise is geared towards those who love dance music and who live by the mantra to ‘Work Hard and Play Harder’. Join the world’s best dance music artists on massive amenity jammed cruise ships as we sail to exotic destinations. Enthusiasts come from all over the world for the music and to escape reality, and they return to reconnect with the amazing friends they have met from previous years.

Depending on which cruise you attend, The Groove Cruise includes beach parties, pool parties, theme parties, shore excursions, crazy sporting competitions, sexy on-board fashion shows, and other events to enhance the Groove Cruise experience to a level unreachable by any dance party or cruise alone. The Groove Cruise is the only event in the dance music industry where there is artist-fan interaction.
