Look At What's Included


Assisted By Dancing Moon Travel  Located In The Greater Atlanta Area, The Dancing Buddy Group Has Put Together An AMAZING Caribbean Cruise Vacation. We'll Sail Roundtrip on Royal Caribbean's Freedom of the Seas From Port Canaveral, Florida On Sunday, March 17th  2013 For Seven Glorious Days & Nights of two-steppin' fun!! 

Aboard the Freedom of the Seas you can enjoy an amazing array of world-class amenities...or simply relax and do nothing at all.  After all...it's YOUR vacation.  There are so many positive and wonderful things about a Caribbean cruise...even more when you sail aboard a ship in the venerated Royal Caribbean fleet!  The only negative may be that the seven days will simply pass too quickly!

On this cruise we will have seven adventure-filled days and evenings to EXPLORE, RELAX, DANCE and PLAY!

  • Enjoy delicious gourmet meals at a variety of venues.
     
  • Relax by the pool or luxuriate in a hot tub.
     
  • Enjoy old friends and new with a cocktail or glass of wine at one of the ship's many lounges.
  • Enjoy the glitter and excitement of a Las Vegas-style show.
     
  • Treat yourself to a 5-star meal at Portofino (dining so fabulous you should plan to do it twice!).
     
  • Shop duty-free stores onboard ship and at the exotic ports of call.
     
  • Try your hand at the slot machines or the blackjack table.
     
  • Dance the night away at one of the ship's many night spots.
     
  • Pamper yourself with a spa treatment...indulge in a luxurious full-body massage.
     
  • Reminisce with old associates and newfound friends about all the fun you had on the cruise during our farewell cocktail party.

 

Wait!!!...There's More!!!


Because this cruise is a Dancing Moon Travel  exclusive "Special Event At Sea", in addition to getting "best available" staterooms at outstanding pre-negotiated prices, all Cruisers will also receive private events and amenities just for you.  Here are just a few:

  • Two private Dance Parties!!
     
  • Pre-sail hotel accommodations with welcoming reception and "Hotel to Pier" transportation. (optional)
     
  • A Bon Voyage surprise gift in every stateroom
     
  • A "one-of-a-kind "Dance Buddy" t-shirt
     
  • Optional shore excursions
     
  • $75 per stateroom onboard credit

Labadee, Haiti - On the north coast of Hispaniola, surrounded by beautiful mountain slopes and exotic foliage, sits Labadee®, Royal Caribbean's private paradise. This exclusive destination offers pristine beaches, breathtaking scenery and spectacular water activities. We even have an amazing new Aqua Park for kids. Regardless of where you go, you'll find yourself embraced by the beautiful landscape. Labadee's native charm, along with its natural beauty, make this a destination not to be missed, and only Royal Caribbean can take you there. 
March average high/low temperature: 87.1/68.9° F 

Falmouth, Jamaica - Quaint Falmouth was an economic powerhouse and center for dramatic social change during the English Colonial Period. In today's Falmouth, visitors still enjoy 19th-century Georgian architecture as well as river bamboo raft rides, arts and crafts shopping, flavorful local fare and horse-and-buggy rides. Falmouth is the gateway to the best Jamaica has to offer. Just east of Falmouth is Ocho Rios, known for its spectacular Dunn’s River Falls. Travel west to reach Montego Bay and the beautiful beaches of Negril. Thanks to its central location, Falmouth gives visitors the best tour experiences of the north coast of Jamaica. 
March average high/low temperature: 85/72° F

Georgetown, Cayman Islands - Grand Cayman is one of a group of three magnificent tropical islands Christopher Columbus called "Las Tortugas" (the turtles) for the sea creatures he found in the ocean water. The designation did not endure, however, for on later maps the islands were labeled the Caimanau, the Carib Indian word for "crocodile." The name "Caimanas" refers inaccurately to the iguanas native to the islands, which were perhaps at one point mistaken for crocodiles. Among other attractions, visitors to the island will enjoy learning about the turtles, visiting the town of Hell, exploring Seven-Mile Beach and enjoying the undersea world.  
March average high/low temperature: 84/73° F

Cozumel, Mexico - The Conquistadors first saw Mexico from the shores of Cozumel while searching for gold. Today, visitors to the island continue to seek out gold and silver jewelry in the shops of San Miguel while having a great time in its many local bars and restaurants. Plus, the waters around Cozumel's sheltered coral reefs make this one of the best snorkeling areas in the world.  
March average high/low temperature: 91/67° F
