January 15th-22nd 2012, the 2012 Sea Swing Sensation, a 7-day Caribbean swing-dance cruise, sails out of Tampa with stops in Grand Cayman, Cozumel, Belize, & Isla Roatan! Join 100+ swing dancers from California, Florida, and elsewhere for the cruising and dancing experience of a lifetime! We (Sam & Carleene) will be teaching daily classes on the cruise, as will top instructors from CA. Check out the cruise and sign up at www.SeaSwingSensation.net.
WHAT's THE COST & DEADLINE? For current rates and registration, call or email Brenda, our swing-dancing travel agent & organizer, at BookWithBrenda@aol.com or 562-217-1371. If you're looking for a cabin mate to save $, just let Brenda know and she'll match you up with another dancer. The entire ship will likely sell out soon, so we recommend booking the sooner the better.
Last time Swing Time participated in a cruise (happens about once a decade) was seven years ago on an equally worthy embarkation, for Frankie Manning's 89th Birthday party ...and that one was a blast! We hope you'll join us for the Sea Swing Sensation!
