The themes for October’s Groove Cruise parties are Identity, Pimps and Hoes, I Love Uniforms, Edm vs Hip Hop, Groove Cruise Derby, and last but not least, Anything But Clothes.

If you’re ever hungry on board, there’s nothing to worry about. You have access to dining 24/7, so don’t worry about last call from the kitchen.

Besides tacos, the moment you step off you see what Mexico has to offer. We will be partying at the top of the cliff at the Casa de Los Siete Patios until it’s time to head back onto the ship. This vacation paradise will host two stages, one on the main level and one underground.

What’s not to like about open bar? If you’re a drinker take advantage of the open bar packages on the ship and in Mexico. Whet Travel offers pretty sweet cheap deals for the open bar so you won’t want to miss the opportunity.

If the music is non stop than that means you can dance 24/7. Groove Cruise offers multiple dance floors for you to let loose. You can keep it chill in the lounges or head upstairs to the pool deck with your friends anytime of the day.

Because having a party on just one ship isn’t enough for Groove Cruise, they decided to throw a pre party on the legendary Queen Mary. It’s conveniently located right across the parking lot from the terminal where you sail away for the next 3 days. The Queen Mary is one of the top ten most haunted places on earth so let’s hope the bass scares away the ghosts.
