Special Dress Up Events

Typically, every night aboard our cruise has a different theme – from 'colors of the day' to ‘rep your city’ parties...crazy costume nights to formal evenings where you can really dress it up. We invite you to participate and be a part of the fun! Get wild, get creative and join the party along with our artists and musicians, who love to take part as well. As with all things on our cruise, all purely optional.

Cooking with Koz

GET COOKIN’ with our cruise ‘host with the most’ and favorite saxophone-playing chef--our very own Dave Koz! "Cooking with Koz" is all about fun and getting to learn a new recipe that you can take back home and share a taste of your adventure with your friends and family. Observe as an executive chef from our ship along with Dave and an artist guest prepare a unique and exciting dish right in front of your eyes...and then get the chance to sample it for yourself. Grab your apron and join the fun!

Special “Sail Away” Events and “Chill By The Pool” Parties

Poolside is the place to be when our artists hit the stage for our sail away events and super-fun parties by the pool. Enjoy a nice cocktail while kicking back, listening to some tunes and savoring the incredible vistas we’ll encounter on our journey. We kick off the entire cruise with our massive Welcome Aboard Sail Away extravaganza here…and this is one party you can NOT miss! Hosted by Dave Koz, you’ll get the chance to meet all of our artists and musicians who will be entertaining you all week long!

All Star Formal Night

Formal night is THE night we want our guests to get decked out and dress to impress! The ship will be buzzing with the All Star Show, “Gambling With The Stars” Casino night, and so much incredible music and entertainment for you to make this one and only formal night of your cruise completely unforgettable! This is of course, completely optional for our guests.
