These are some of the comments
from our happy cruisers!
love Sundancer Cruises! I'm not just saying it - I can prove
it! - I've cruised with Sundancer since 2006, for 9 amazing
adventures so far. Brent and Cathy have a system, and I mean
that in the best possible way. They know all the in's and
out's of managing every aspect of a successful cruise
vacation, and a productive series of dance workshops, and an
exciting list of theme dance parties! Until you've been on a
dance cruise, it's hard to understand how many details are
involved... and even then, it's difficult to fully
appreciate all the things that Sundancer handles behind the
scenes! For instance, they charter their own buses to get us
around before and after the cruise, and often schedule their
own fun excursions in various ports (at a much better value
than the ships provide) so we can have even more fun with
our dance friends. They don't miss a trick! Sundancer is
smart, too - careful to select ships with facilities
appropriate to ballroom dancing at sea, and being sure they
don't overbook each trip for the floor space available.
Cathy and Brent know how to make every day, every event,
enjoyable... and that's why they have so many repeat
travelers like me! These days, each Sundancer dance cruise
feels a little like a class reunion, as friends from past
cruises get together for another spectacular getaway. I am
always looking forward to my next Sundancer cruise! Who's
coming along next time?? See you at sea!!
ask me all the time why would I teach on a dance cruise being as
I teach dance every day for a living.
Great question, only one answer "Sundancer
know each time I sign on for one of these cruises as a guest
instructor that they will be professionally managed so that
while the guests (and often my own students) are enjoying
quality dance time, private dance parties, great music, we are
all assured of great ships, wonderful excursions and attention
to the details that make a great vacation -- dancing or not.
If you love to dance and love to travel this is the only
way to go!

have sailed six times between January 2008 and October 2011 on
various cruise lines with varied itineraries (Mexican
). Each cruise has
been exceptional. I
have made lifetime friends from these cruises. Cathy & Brent
are wonderful, organized, thorough, and plan the cruises well.
Love our first day gathering and always a joy to see
fellow past cruisers. It's like a reunion. I highly
recommend joining her cruises.

has the best dance cruises for the cost. This is the most fun
way to have a dance experience while visiting foreign shores. My
husband Craig and I had the best time ever teaching and dancing
with willing students between ports. This is the best vacation
of Adventures in Dance
have worked as a dance host for Sundancer Cruises for several
years and I was always impressed how Cathy and Brent always made
sure that each person was having a good time and that everything
was running smoothly. I have made many friends that I still see
and keep in touch with long after our cruise ended. Sundancer
does it right!
just like to say that I MISS MY DANCE CRUISE FAMILY! I haven't
been able to join you for a while, but that doesn't mean I don't
intend to catch up with you in the near future and add more
beautiful moments to my dance cruise memory file! Thanks for
being a wonderful part of my life.
were reluctant first time cruisers several years ago when we
signed on with Cathy and Brent for a
Sundancer Cruise - a 3 day/4 night itinerary.
We had such a blast that we've returned to go on a number
of their cruises. Each
one has been marked by Cathy and Brent's warmth, care and
possible detail of the travel experience is attended to and the
dance opportunities are numerous, well organized and FUN!
The guest instructors make the workshops worthwhile for
dancers at any level and the social dancing is plentiful.
Sharing the travel and the dancing with other people who
have those passions is exhilarating.
There are many "repeat customers" which makes
each cruise like a family reunion.
We'd go anywhere with the Paxtons and Sundancer Cruisers!

wife and I have cruised with Sundancer Cruises on several
totally enjoyed the camaraderie with the other cruisers and the
social dance parties. Everything
was well organized and the cruise locations and itineraries were
wonderful. For a
dancer, it doesn’t get any better than cruising with a
Sundancer group! They’re

(dance) cruises ago, I ran across Sundancer Cruises while
cruising with another group. They were clearly having so much
fun that I determined to join them on my next vacation. One of
my better decisions; I've cruised with Sundancer perhaps a half
dozen times since and had a great time on every cruise. Kathy
& Brent make cruising as pleasant and painless as is humanly
possible. Maggie and the other guest instructors are each
excellent instructors and fun fellow cruisers. The group is big
enough to allow plenty of variety in partners, but not too big
for the dance facilities on board. Come cruising!
went on my first cruise ever in February, 2016. I would have
been up a creek without a paddle if I had not gone on a
Sundancer cruise. Cathy walked me through everything I needed to
do and sent out reminders to get things done. She even set up
two private excursions, exclusively for our group, that we could
sign up for. We had dance workshops all day, even on port days.
We had an extra five hours of flash mob instruction and
practice, and did a flash mob performance for the entire ship.
We had a social dance every day, including the welcome dance on
the day of boarding. We could purchase DVDs of the workshops and
our dances through Sundancer, and we had a special rate on the
Cathy even set up a shared photo website link with free
download of any photos that Sundancer and the fellow cruisers
had provided. In 2017, the Sundancer cruise will be in the
summer. Because I can only go in the
winter, and wanted to go on another dance cruise, I started
looking around for another dance cruise. None of the dance
cruises offered as much as the Sundancer cruises. I believe the
Sundancer cruise offered a lot of extras that you may not find
on another dance cruise. I would highly recommend Sundancer.
met my husband in Sept 2014 on what turned out to be a fabulous
'love boat' Sundancer cruise from Vancouver to LA! John was/is
an American seasoned ballroom dancer and I was a Canadian novice
dancer, both of us
looking for an opportunity to dance and an interesting cruise
itinerary. The itinerary that attracted each of us was,
ironically, the Canadian/USA west coast! Though we had both
cruised before, this was our first with Sundancer. The dance and
travel aspects of this cruise were so enjoyable that we hope to
do another with the Paxtons, whose superb planning and
organization helped make our first cruise experience with them a
resounding success ߇?߇?߇?߇?
