This year for the first time, Groove Cruise will take over the iconic Queen Mary in Long Beach to kick off the nautical adventure on Oct 5. The Bon Voyage party will be a late night excursion like no other, Groove Cruise will deliver a devilishly themed Halloween party on the famously haunted Queen Mary. Groove Cruise Founder and CEO of Whet Travel Jason Beukema stated ‘Everyone is fascinated by the Queen Mary and its history. It’s going to be a once in a lifetime experience to have the GCFam stay on the ship, party onboard and take part in all the Dark Harbor freaky festivities the night before we set sail to Mexico. And it’s conveniently across the parking lot from the cruise terminal we sail from the next day’.
Rightfully crowned as the original electronic music festival cruise, Groove Cruise has successfully sailed 23 voyages since 2004 and is the only musical cruise to sail from both East and West Coasts. After 13 years sailing far and wide, Groove Cruise knows how to deliver a dance music adventure like no other.
