About Groove Cruise
What started in 2004, as a group of 125 thrill-seeking house-heads sailing on a cruise together, has erupted into the world’s largest floating dance music festival. Groove Cruise is the only music cruise to sail from both East and West coasts, and is a non-stop experience, comprised of four straight days of beach, pool, buffets, EDM and luxurious destination parties. In addition to the standard cruise amenities, there are also themed extravaganzas, yoga classes (often paired with deep house), costume parties, and various onboard events that rival the best dance music festivals in the world. Groove Cruise is produced by Whet Travel.
