Groove Cruise Miami Returns For Their 15th Anniversary

Mere weeks after docking a successful expedition to the Bahamas, the world’s largest floating dance party, Groove Cruise Miami announces the booking window for their 15th anniversary. Groove Cruise Miami returns next year, and will set sail January 10-14, 2019, departing from Miami and will travel through Key West and Cozumel, Mexico. 

The ultimate party cruise will offer up an epic nautical adventure to whet the palates of bold partiers from across the globe. Over 50 artists are expected to board the new luxury ship called the Celebrity Infinity, which will provide a new experience in anticipation of the annual charter, introducing central theme for 2019 as The Compass. Whether fulfilling relationships or exotic destinations, this beacon will leave the ship seared into the hearts of every last captain that disembarks.

Known for its clear, turquoise waters, vibrant snorkeling, and culinary delights, Cozumel will add an extra layer of travel and culture to Groove Cruise’s famously impressive itinerary. The Groove Cruise family will also be making a stop in Key West, an intimate island hub. Rolling out further initiatives to heighten the peak experience Groove Cruise Miami delivers, the ship will now depart from the port of Ft. Lauderdale. What was once an arduous cab ride from airport to port is now direct; GC Fam will be able to travel from plane to boat in a matter of minutes.

Groove Cruise’s policy of an all-inclusive vibe invites revelers of all ages, cultures, and backgrounds to come aboard for 96 hours of nonstop music, dancing and exploration on the tropical high seas of the Mayan Riviera. Set aside quick judgements and assumptions, to live fully and love wholly, and to party your aft off. Tickets go on sale to the general public on  March 15 at 2 P.M. EST.
