What to expect on the
"Sing at Sea" Cruise Event
Get ready for a fun vacation and singing
Start planning now for a fun-filled vacation and cruising experience on the "Sing at Sea" cruise event.
Your group cruise
price includes the standard cruise amenities of onboard gourmet meals,
outstanding service, a wide variety of entertainment & activities ...
PLUS ... Dr. Lynne Morrow presents her "Wade in the
Water" African American Spirituals Workshop. Sing, rehearse and learn
about the African American Spirituals singing form and history along
gatherings for our group only. Must be booked with our group,
"Sing at Sea" via Paradise Travel Service, to
participate. (workshop schedule to follow)
The Sing at Sea cruise format is very "relaxed" where the days are
yours to go ashore and explore the amazing Pacific Northwest ports of
call or simply remain onboard and enjoy the ship. This cruise is not
just for singers - we welcome and encourage friends and family to
join our fun group as we dine together, gather for group parties and
experience a wonderful, musical and singing cruise vacation. Our group
focus is to experience the cruise and the majestic Alaska destinations
with singing as a bonus! The onboard workshops, conducted by Dr. Lynne
Morrow, will be presented in the morning and afternoon on the four sea
days (as the ship schedule and space allows). American Spirituals Chorus
rehersals and performance schedule TBA. We will have a "Meet &
Greet" group gathering on embakation day plus other special gatherings
for “our group only”. Private lessons with Dr. Lynne Morrow are
available (additional fee applys) as the schedule permits. Remember, it
is your vacation and it is your choice to do as much or as little as you
wish! Our actual group schedule and meeting times are 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 singing
Dining options are on a first come, first booked basis so register
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
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. Please note that choosing dining options other
than the Traditional 2nd Seating may cause you to miss some of the Sing
at Sea activities.
There are many activity and entertainment choices available
onboard the ship. You can enjoy 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 singers -- so, go ahead and bring your family and friends
along as there is something for everyone on a cruise!
