How does the Best Available Cabin option work?

Guests who book into a Best Available category are guaranteed a cabin of their selected type but will not be able to select where the cabin is located.  You will select a cabin type at the time of booking, but your cabin number will be assigned prior to sailing.

NOTE: Best Available categories are limited in quantity, and are subject to price changes.  Once you are booked your price is locked in, but the price may change at any time for future Best Available reservations.

Will the artists be on board the whole time?

Our artists are excited to join you on board for the whole event. However, there may be some cases where they must join us during the trip or depart early due to schedule or family commitments.

When should I plan to arrive and depart from Miami?

When booking flights we recommend that you arrive in Miami no later than 12:00pm, or in Ft. Lauderdale no later than 11:00am on February 19th. Return flights should be arranged to leave Miami after 12:00pm on February 22th, or leave Ft Lauderdale after 1:00pm.

What gratuity charges should I expect to see on board?

A fixed service charge will be added to your onboard spending account in the amount of $12.95 per person per day for interiors, ocean views, balconies and mini-suites and $14.95 per person per day for all suites. 

The reason there's a fixed service charge is an important one: the ship crew is encouraged to work together as a team. Staff members including restaurant staff, stateroom stewards and behind-the-scenes support staff are compensated by a combination of salary and incentive programs that your service charge supports.

Additionally, an 18% auto-gratuity charge will be applied for some other onboard services and experiences. These include, but are not limited to, beverage purchases (alcohol and non-alcoholic), specialty dining packages, alcohol tastings, and spa and salon services.

While you are welcome to extend additional gratuities at your discretion, these minimum service gratuities are agreed to be paid by you upon booking your stateroom.

Am I guaranteed access to all shows onboard?

Gronk's Party Ship 2016 guests have an All Access Pass to all our Gronk programming on board.  All of our programming is general admission with your pass, so you’re welcome to come and go as you wish!

 

What is the performance schedule and how does admission work?

The exact performance schedule will be released HERE prior to the cruise, but count on each band playing multiple times with festival scheduling and multiple shows occurring on multiple stages!
