Our Favorite Floating Music Festival, Groove Cruise, Is Sailing Somewhere New In 2016

Ah, Groove Cruise.

We can still smell the booze and remember all of our shenanigans vividly from Groove Cruise Miami, which sailed this past January to a beautiful private island in Bahamas. Just as we were fully recovering from our 96-hour non-stop party adventure, Groove Cruise has announced big plans for 2016: the world-renown party Cruise will sail to a brand-new destination next year. Groove Cruise is headed to Jamaica.

For the first time, Groove Cruise will invade Ocho Rios as the ship sets sail to the Caribbean January 22-January 26th onboard the Norwegian Pearl. Whet Travel, the masterminds behind Groove Cruise, are already planning for your arrival.  This past Groove Cruise Miami featured some of the biggest names in dance music including Arty, New World Punx, Will Sparks, and many many more. Expect some of your favorite artists onboard next year, Whet Travel will not disappoint.

We know there’s other cruises out there, but plain and simple: there’s nothing like Groove Cruise. With a huge focus on house and techno artists, expect there to be major support from labels like Incorrect Music and others. Groove Cruise is not Holy Ship or Mad Decent. It’s an older crowd of professional party people that know how to party, seriously. It’s hard to explain but it’s something you need to experience. We loved it so much, we called Groove Cruise the wildest party of the year in 2014. Find out why here.

Tickets for Groove Cruise Miami go on sale March 11 at And here’s some great news: you can save on your cabin with the code EDMMANIAC upon booking.

Can’t wait till March? Groove Cruise also sails in October from Los Angeles to Mexico. Staterooms are available now, but you must hurry — Groove Cruise LA is almost sold out.

Get ready for the experience of a lifetime when Groove Cruise heads to Jamaica. You’ll thank us later.
