Music Cruises 2015 dates – itineraries, schedule, information and all you need is here to compare. We offer you a list of Classical music concerts and dance cruise specials on deals to visit Caribbean, Europe and Australia on a big cruise ship vacation. Caution – music cruises are super fun, generally promoting a lot of drinking and dancing activities. The cruise drinking and dancing fun generally involves big money spending. The survey is integrated with Themed Cruises.
Very special are also all the music concert cruises on big river ships in Europe. For music and dance themed sailings, the list of best cruise ship lines to choose from includes Carnival, Royal Caribbean, NCL (Norwegian), Princess, Holland America, Avalon (European rivers), the UK’s Saga and P&O.
The “Dance-Music Cruise” experience
Themed “Music” cruises
Themed as “Music Cruises” deals are from the list of the industry’s newest inventions. They are very similar to all the music concerts arranged at land-based facilities (music halls, theaters, stadiums, etc. And since modern cruise ships can accommodate from 2500 (on average) to more than 5000 people, these so special marine vessels become the perfect place for the mixed “music concert and party” cruise vacation the world has never seen before.
From what Wikipedia have said about music – it’s the art form “whose medium is sound and silence”. However, on cruise ships there’s no such thing as silence – it’s party time all the time! The word “music” derives from Greek “mousike” meaning the “art of the Muses”. And what is better than a Muses-inspired vacation of several days at sea, right?
- Great music, dancing, food, drinks, party and fun in one cruise package?
- You want it?
- Just ask the cucaracha performers here – they know all about it.
Themed “Dance” cruises
The dance cruise experience is a major part of the “Music Cruise” specials – especially when famous bands and singers are involved in these action. And these “musical” deals suggest a hell of a lot dancing on the ship. Imagine you can enjoy (if fortunate enough) your super cool band’s performance at sea. there are some truly unique sailings, which include huge crowd dancing parties featuring NKOTB (with the “New Kids On The Block” celebrities),
Christian-themed music cruises are another unique offer in this category. On those you’ll enjoy the company of hundreds and even thousands of like-minded folks sharing your ideas of God, right and wrong. And quite often, preachers there dance and enjoy the music more than the audience itself.
Popular musical genders on the specially themed music and dance cruises are Rock, Country and Folk bands. And Classical music and Jazz themed cruises offer one truly sophisticated experience at sea. Often music-themed sailings are combined with specials from the category of Food and Wine cruises. These are usually Jazz- or Classic music themed (often river cruise) deals, offering a gourmet voyage on some of the Europe’s biggest rivers, such as Danube, or Rhone and Seine in France.
P&O Cruises UK ships offer each year several Music Cruises leaving from Southampton, and their Australia brand may offer such themed deals from Sydney, Australia. Most of them are Mediterranean cruises from Southampton, and Cruises To Nowhere from Sydney – i.e. without additional ports of call (which significantly lowers their cost by not including port charges).
How much do “Music Cruises” cost, what is included in prices?
Your dance/music cruise infrastructure is pretty much like a normal sailing – but it’s not, ok? The cruise part as always, include tanning, swimming, drinking, dining, sleeping (with the “repeat until” command) summarized as “easy big time fun”. Your “music cruise tickets” prices are inclusive of all meals on the boat, and add to that the 24-hr room service onboard. This means all main dining rooms and the buffet dining, specialty restaurants charge extra (from ~$20 to $50 per meal). Alcohol, soda and soft drinks are not in the list of inclusions.
Beware – enjoying the music cruise fun in a not healthy and not cheap combination with lots of beverages could cost you way more than the ticket itself. Virtually all music and dance cruise deals are on round-trip departures from some of the world’s biggest cruise ports – like Miami and Fort Lauderdale in Florida, NYC New York, Boston MA, Los Angeles, Southampton UK, Sydney AU.
