Is the Miami Winter Music Conference too expensive in the current economy? Well your friends at Coed Magazine are here to let you in on a little known, house music secret that’s been happening twice a year, for the last half a decade. Compared to WMC it will get you some of the glam, most of the partying, and all of the excitement for less than 10% of the cost of a trip to WMC – It’s The Groove Cruise.
The house music party Cruise sets sail out of Miami in January and out of San Diego in September – sure, not the most desirable months in either local, but that’s probably how the promoters keep the cost down because for as little as $450 a person you get a major cruise line (this January it’s Norwegian Star of the Sea), all meals and snacks, and five major parties including two shore parties, and the sexy final night theme party – (This year’s theme is Naughty Nautical. All you’re left to pay for on the ship is your alcohol. . .and your mistakes.
On Board you’ll experience Norwegian’s “Freestyle Cruising”. Eat where, when and with whomever you want! Eat at a different restaurant every night of your cruise (there are six specialty restaurants and dining rooms). You can even dress how you want. NCL claims that, “You’re free to do whatever.” – Yeah, OK we’ll see about that.
The Miami headliner this year is Mr. Satisfaction himself Benni Bennassi, but the cruise also features superstars Steve Smooth, Sydney Blu and Sirius radio’s own Cato K. You could drop $300 in a few hours seeing stars like that at London’s Ministry of Sound, Mansion (Miami & NYC),Pacha or Nikki Beach. So in terms of value for your party dollar the promoter – Travel Business Whet Travel – is onto something.
But you better move if you want to groove because the dates are approaching fast!! Friday January 29th – Monday February 1st.
