Professional dancers Tony Dovolani, Chelsie Hightower, and Elena Grinenko, from the hit show Dancing with the Stars, have partnered with The Cruise Authority to create the ultimate dance fan experience – Cruise with the Dance Stars. This dance festival at sea will take place on Royal Caribbean International’s Freedom of the Seas from January 15 - 22, 2012. Tony, Chelsie and Elena will dance with guests throughout the Caribbean, from Port Canaveral, Fla., to CocoCay, Bahamas; St. Thomas, U.S.V.I.; and Philipsburg, St. Maarten.

Guests aboard Cruise with the Dance Stars have the chance to take dance lessons from Tony, Chelsie and Elena, joined by Royal Caribbean’s own professional show dancers; an exclusive dance performance by Chelsie and Tony; private Q&A sessions; photo and autograph sessions; private welcome and farewell receptions; and CWDS goodies. Guests must book via the Cruise with the Dance Stars web site in order to enjoy exclusive dance events.

One lucky cruise guest will win a 1-hour private dance lesson from Chelsie and Tony.

“The chance to bring Tony, Chelsie and Elena onboard this cruise is a great honor for The Cruise Authority,” said co-owner of The Cruise Authority, David Bittner. “We believe we are offering fans unprecedented access and an amazing experience aboard this cruise.”
