Dancing With The Stars Celebrity Dance Pro and Season 13 Champion Karina Smirnoff has a new gig – Cruising With The Stars ™, a new dance-focused fan cruise that launches June 3-10, 2012 from Los Angeles for a 7-day excursion to the Mexican Riviera, aboard Carnival Cruise Line’s ship The Splendor.  Ports of call are Cabo San Lucas and Puerto Vallarta.

It’s truly a red carpet affair for this inaugural cruise from Cruising With The Stars ™ which headlines Karina, who, to the thrill of her fans, will be offering all levels of dance and fitness classes on board the ship and inviting both dancers and fans to join her for a full week of celebration following the upcoming DWTS Season 14 – including nightly CWTS cocktail and dance parties, personal Q&A and celeb photo sessions, excursions on shore, all culminating with a spectacular professional dance show.

On Cruising With The Stars, Karina joins six of America’s champion professional dance instructors and performers -- Sharon Savoy and Mike Tuttle, Jamie Bayard and Bonnie Marie, and Enio Cordoba and Terryl Jones.

“Cruising With The Stars will set a new standard in dance cruise excursions.  Add the rare opportunity to join one of America’s hottest dance celebrities – DWTS’s Karina Smirnoff -- for a full week of unmatched dance instruction and exhilarating performances, and it’s a formula for success,” stated Event Organizer and Hosts Sharon Savoy and Mike Tuttle.     

Karina is especially looking forward to the time off to meet fans personally and work with dancers.  In addition to the unprecedented nearly 60 hours of dance instruction offered on board ship, there will be a limited opportunity to take private lessons with Karina, as well as the other master level instructors.
