Tango Ecstasy Cruise to the Bahamas - Feb. 20 to Feb 25, 2019

Only $150 Deposit to Lock in your Price!!! Deadline July 31st, 2018!

Join us for a fun 5 day Tango Cruise from Charleston, SC to the Bahamas hosted by tango instructors, Clint Rasucher of Atlanta and Mauro Marcone of Houston! We had a group of 47 people go last year, and expect to have many more this year!

We will have workshops on the days that we are at sea and milongas each night. We need at least 20 people to book, before we can negotiate times with the cruise ship. But this year, we are going plan on doing some earlier milongas on the deck. We will bring plenty of dance wax to allow for better pivoting. Right now the tentative schedule is:

Wednesday - February 20th
Evening: Welcome Milonga

Thursday - February 21st
Daytime: Workshop and Practice
Evening: Milonga

Friday - February 22nd
Daytime: Docked at Princess Cays (Carnival's Private Beach)

And email me your:

  • Full name as it is on your Passport
  • Date of Birth
  • Phone
  • The name of the person that you will share your room with and their email and phone number OR if you would like me to help find you a roommate
  • The group/organizer code, if you are registering with any local group that is joining us on the cruise.

Other fees you can expect to encounter:

  • Travel to and from Charleston. We recommend that you arrive at least a day early to avoid travel delays and missing the departure time. We might can help you find a place to stay the night before, but can't promise that.
  • Gratuities. Just like with any hotel or resort, gratuities are expected. The easiest way to handle this is through to pay Carnival's built in gratuity of $64.75. They will then take that and divide it up between all those that provided you services. Click here to learn more.
  • Drink packages. Food and regular drinks such as water, tea, and lemonade are free, but alcoholic beverages and sodas are extra. You can pay for them individually or with special drink packages.
  • Excursions. When docked at a port, you can exit the ship and wonder the city on your own, or pay for guided excursions such as snorkeling, sailing, tours, etc.
     

Group/Organizer Discounts
If you would like to organize a group from your area to join us, email me for details. If you can organize a group of 4 or more, not including yourself, you can get a reduction in your room rate. Sorry, but this will exclude the areas of Atlanta, Charleston, and Houston.

Also, join the discussion and let everyone know when you are registered on the Official Facebook Event Page.
