What to expect on a Sea Magic Cruise ...

Get ready for a fun vacation and dance experience!
Start planning now for a fun-filled vacation of cruising & dancing with friends as the Sea Magic Dance Cruises are a Total Dance Vacation Experience. Your group cruise price includes the standard cruise amenities of onboard gourmet meals, outstanding service, a wide variety of entertainment & activities "PLUS" dance classes, group parties and social dancing for our group only - must be booked with our group (Sea Magic via Paradise Travel Service) to participate. The emphasis of our group is on enjoying a relaxed and fun cruise vacation with friends and family with dancing as a bonus!

Our Sea Magic cruise format is very "relaxed" where the days are yours to go ashore and explore the ports of call or simply remain onboard and enjoy the ship. This cruise is not just for dancers - we welcome and encourage friends and family to join our fun group as we dine together, gather for group parties and experience a wonderful cruise vacation. Our group focus is to experience the cruise and our fabulous destinations with dancing as a bonus! Our on board classes, taught by Michelle Kinkaid, will be presented as the ship schedule and space allows ... typically on the days at sea. The actual dances taught will be decided by those that are sailing on this voyage via the "Dance Survey" that is distributed prior to sailing (dances with the most votes in the past have been west coast swing and night club two step with country two step, salsa, cha cha, waltz, rumba and others also rating). We will have special gatherings, parties, and dances for “our group only” in addition to the general pre-dinner and after-dinner dancing available in the open ship lounges. Remember, It is your vacation and it is your choice to do as much or as little as you wish! Our actual group schedule is finalized by the ship just prior to sailing and the schedule is subject to change.

Our group evening dining is typically the Traditional-2nd seating @ approx 8pm due to the late port departure times and our dance schedule. Dining options are on a first come, first booked basis so register early to get your preference. You may also choose other dining options outside the group such as: Traditional 1st Seating (space permitting), the Anytime Dining Room (walk in basis from 5:30-9:30pm, this option may have a waiting list just like in a restaurant), casual dining in the Horizon Court Buffet, Poolside Grill, Poolside Princess Pizzaria and 24-hr room service. There are also two "Specialty" Restaurants available: The Steakhouse/Crown Grille and Sabatini's which charge an additional fee and require reservations.

There are many activity and entertainment choices available onboard the ship. You can dance to the live bands in the lounges, see a variety of shows, relax in a lounge, stroll on the deck, see a movie, read a book or enjoy the many other options the ship has to offer. Reminder: This cruise is not just for dancers -- so, go ahead and bring your family and friends along as there is something for everyone on a cruise!

All cabins have two twin beds (most convert to queen), TV, bathroom w/shower (tub/shower in suites), hair dryer, thermostat controlled heat/air conditioning, safe, direct dial telephone w/voice mail, desk/vanity, plentiful closet space, and complimentary 24-hr room service.

1. Your Own Air
If you are making airline reservations on your own, give yourself plenty of time to get to and from the ship.
If you are travelling from a different time zone or great distance, you will definitely want to arrive a day or
so early to allow for any unexpected travel delays and travel fatigue. You will want to be fresh so that you
can fully enjoy your cruise vacation.

Return flight- check with Michelle or the cruise line for guidelines.
Ships generally disembark in the morning however it takes several hours to complete
the process, go through customs and travel to the airport.

Envelopes are also typically available for you to personally deliver the gratuities to dining and stateroom personnel. (subject to change)

You should dress for cruising the same way you would for a land based resort.

You may want to bring a hat, jacket and sweater as well as swim suit, shorts, visor and sunglasses.
