HERE IS A SMALL SAMPLE WHAT YOU MISSED IN PREVIOUS YEARS
The Festival At Sea is the longest running African-American Themed Charter Cruise in the World!
Festival At Sea’s African American Cultural Cruise is a celebration of family, music, dance, religion, comedy, family structure, literature, art and so much more. It is about our individual and wonderful differences, families, and our community. African American minorities are the second largest minority group, and we are traveling and exploring the world.
We hope you are too. Festival At Sea has cruised for THIRTY years. Many of our guests have traveled numerous years with us. We have generations of cruisers; grandmothers, moms, and dads, and children are cruising with us. This cultural cruise places you in a different mindset.
We are family, and when first-time cruisers come on board, they are amazed at how thousands of people can cruise together, have fun, and get along.
Yes, we can cruise together, and yes, we have for over 30 years now. First-time cruisers also wonder why no one told them about the Festival At Sea Cruise.
African American themed cruise. Entering our 32nd year of Cruising with an African-American Twist, we've set the bar high and 2024 reaches that mark as we set sail on the beautiful Celebrity Reflection.
The Reflection captures the very essence of premium cruising and luxury. With new amenities not available on any other Celebrity ship, prepare to have your expectations exceeded as soon as you step on board.
This is “Modern Luxury” and in 2024, you will be the Celebrity!
On Festival at Sea we bring top-name entertainment to perform for you in our venues. DJ's spin music in our onboard clubs and our White Night and Costume Theme Nights are off the hook. The days are filled with dozens of activities, shows and classes that will keep you moving throughout the week. That’s why so many people make it their annual Family Reunion at Sea.
Some of our exclusive events include:
Speed Dating, Gospel Brunch, Worship Service, Bible Study, Bid Whist, Dominoes, Aqua Zumba, Steppin' Classes, Urban Line Dancing, UNCF Bachelor Auction, Boot Camp Workout, African-American Idol, Urban Ballroom Dancing, Family Feud, Jewelry Raffle Giveaway, Stomp The Deck Frat and Sorority Step Competition, 2 on 2 Basketball Tournament, Gospelcise, African Attire Evening & Fashion Show, Renewal of Wedding Vows & Beach Parties.
All of this is wrapped up in 8 days of excitement and celebration ... including 5 fun filled ports in the beautiful Caribbean!
Once on the ship, you'll notice there’s fun everywhere you look ... the dance clubs are delicious, the show lounges spectacular, and each bar makes even a simple drink a chance to chill in a setting less ordinary.
Our Festival at Sea staff plans events for cruisers young and old alike, including our top name entertainment ... old school and new school clubs (with the music you wanna listen to) ... family friendly activities ... games for singles and couples ... theme nights ... costume parties ... there's a reason we call it FESTIVAL at SEA!
"The camaraderie of cruising with over 2000 other black folks from all around the country is what truly makes Festival at Sea the special event that it is."
There's also Love Connection and Speed Dating games for singles, plus Funk Aerobics and African Dance Aerobics classes. Join the Ahneva Ahneva Fashion Show, the Spoken Word Poetry Cafe or participate in a Bid Whist, Dominoes, Golf or Tennis tournament. And that's just the beginning.
Festival at Sea brings it's own DJ teams to rock the clubs on board all week long. Our professional MC's and DJ's play the music you wanna hear whether you're Old School, New School or anywhere in between.
And with several clubs to choose from each night, you can change it up
Perhaps the best thing about a Festival at Sea cruise however, is YOU. You make the experience possible. The camaraderie of cruising with over 2000 other black folks from all around the country is what truly makes Festival at Sea the special event that it is.
