What to expect on the
"Sing at Sea" Cruise Event

Get ready for a fun vacation and singing experience!
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 with group 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) 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 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. 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!
