While the hit television show “Dancing with the Stars” is in full swing right now on ABC, the “Dancing with the Stars: At Sea” theme cruises are getting ready to cha cha their way into the Alaska cruise season.
The first of the six theme cruises in 2014 sets sail June 14 aboard ms Zuiderdam on a roundtrip Vancouver voyage to Tracy Arm, Juneau, Skagway and Ketchikan, with scenic cruising along the Inside Passage. Personalities from “Dancing with the Stars” sailing with the ship will be professional dancers Tristan MacManus and Kym Johnson, television personality Carson Kressley and actress Sabrina Bryan. Events on the theme cruises include dance lessons with the ship’s professional dancers, a special fashion show featuring glamorous “Dancing with the Stars” show costumes and a chance to meet the dance pros and celebrities, ask questions and take photos with them.
Scenic beauty takes center stage on the “Dancing with the Stars: At Sea” theme cruises this season, with additional theme sailings departing for Alaska June 21 on Zuiderdam, and July 26 and Aug. 2 on Westerdam. The dancers head to warmer waters for the Nov. 29 theme cruise aboard Westerdam in the eastern Caribbean, and the season culminates with the 2014 Champions Cruise aboard Westerdam’s Dec. 6 Caribbean sailing.
While not every cruise is a theme cruise, “Dancing with the Stars: at Sea” experiences are on all cruises and include complimentary dance lessons led by the ship’s resident professionals that were developed in collaboration with the show’s dancers and choreographers. Guests from all skill levels of dance who choose to take their lessons to the next step can enter a guest dance-off competition to win a chance to compete on the 2014 Champions Cruise.
The guests in the photos below made it all the way to the final competition on their particular cruise, and some were even crowed the winner! One of these talented guests might even be chosen to compete in the Champions Cruise at the end of the year.
