Ballroom dance cruise

Ten years ago when I first discovered dance cruising I went a bit crazy. Ballroom dancing is partner dancing, and as many dancers may agree, without a regular partner, opportunities for social dancing can be limited.

 I was casually surfing the web, looking for dance camps and other opportunities for dance, when  I came across Dancers at Sea, who were advertising a cruise from Los Angeles to Vancouver. With some trepidation I joined the group for this West Coast Cruise -Dancing and Wine, enjoyed dancing every night, made some new friends ... and was hooked on dance cruising.

It’s been two years since I sat with the Future Cruise agent on Cunard’s fabulous Queen Mary 2, figuring out that I could follow a Baltic Cruise on the Queen Elizabeth with a westbound Transatlantic cruise on the Queen Mary 2, would get me back to New York. And today we’re off to the UK to board the ship.

Travel Blogues: West Coast Dance Cruising on Ruby Princess

During the years I worked at C&W Hospital, the rainy winter months in Vancouver never bothered me. I was usually at work early and it was dark by the time I left for home. But the incessant rain and dreary greyness this November was denervating and the thought of a West Cost cruise down to sunny Mexico was appealing. I found the perfect choice  - a 7 night cruise on the Ruby Princess.
