MSC Cruises plans on toe-tapping, two-stepping, jazz-styling, and band-playing its way across the seas in 2007. Its music- and dance-related cruises will focus on such themes as Big Band sounds, dance, and classical music.
If you like the tunes of Big Band, Dixieland, rhythm and blues, jazz, and contemporary music, consider booking an 11-night sailing on the MSC Opera. The January 14, February 5 and 27, and March 21 itineraries feature performances by the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra as well as several vocalists.
Or, if you want to dance your cruise away, book a repositioning cruise on the MSC Sinfonia departing in late November. You’ll learn to samba, tango, salsa, lambada, mambo, merengue, rumba, cha cha, and more. Well-regarded dance instructors will teach guests the steps before sending them off to compete in onboard dance contests.
Classical music lovers and cruisers hoping to gain a new appreciation of music may wish to sail on the MSC Melody on November 18. The onboard schedule is chock-full of afternoon and evening concerts, and lectures on classical music and music appreciation.
If these itineraries don’t work for you, don’t worry. You’ll find plenty of music and dance on MSC Cruises’ regular sailings. Between performances in the ships’ lounges and on the pool decks, dancing in the discos, and music-and-dance numbers during evening shows, you’ll have many chances to clap those hands, stomp those feet, and whistle a happy tune.
