Cruise website targets Strictly Come Dancing fans

Having already announced four dance cruises for 2012, sailing with Royal Caribbean and MSC Cruises, will also be selling the two new ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ cruises on P&O this summer.

The two new cruises, sailing on P&O’s recently refurbished Oriana will see the ship sailing two summer cruises to either the Norwegian Fjords or the Baltic accompanied by Strictly judge, Craig Revel-Horwood and four of the Strictly professionals. Passengers will be able to attend classes and talks on dance and the show.

The other four cruises, part of a new series of 2012 themed voyages organised by all include dance as key element and will be suitable for social dancers through to the more experienced. The cruises will be hosted on four ships throughout the coming year, with each voyage between three and 12 nights, including Zumba the new dance-workout phenomena in May, and more traditional styles on the three other cruises. Each cruise will be hosted by expert dance instructors, Warren Bullock and Jane Phillips, World Professional 10 Dance Finalists who also specialize in choreographing show dance routines. The pair have have been choreographers and consultants on various projects including ‘Strictly Come Dancing’, plus they were trained by none other than head judge of ‘Strictly ’ Len Goodman.

“It’s great that P&O have announced these two new cruises which will suit many of our existing customers and those who love the TV show. We have been organising dance cruises for a number of years and know how successful they have become. Whilst P&O are looking at the adult market, we know that these other cruises may appeal to younger passengers especially the Zumba cruise.”

Commenting on the Royal Caribbean and MSC voyages, Warren Bullock said: ”Our cruises include a series of dance workshops run by Jane and myself where we teach guests a short routine in the various Ballroom, Zumba and Latin dances. You can choose either the easy social level or the more experienced level of workshops to suit your dancing ability - all free for guests to attend whenever they want to. What better way to see the world than on a luxury cruise ship while dancing the night away -pure heaven!”
