GCMIA 2017 Pre-Sailing Updates

Just 7 days to go before Groove Cruise Miami 2017 sets sail out of Miami and heads to the exotic destination of the Turks and Caicos Islands.

I’ve got a lot of updates for the #GCFAM before we sail, so by the time you finish this post, you’ll be all caught up.

If you’re short on time, here’s what’s covered:

  • Limited cabins remain (all suites/portholes sold out – just 2 balconies left)
  • Specialty brunches and dinners are being offered
  • Beach party lineup and open bar offer announced
  • Loyalty gift details and merch store hours
  • Official GCCABO 4K extended cut video released to get you hyped for GCMIA
  • Deep House Yoga is being offered both sea days
  • Ping Pong and Mini Golf featuring GC headliners
  • Incorrect Afterhours party lineup is stacked
  • Carnival online check in is now available

Here we go.

Very Limited Cabins Remain

Check out the latest price grid below. When you go to book your cabin, the reservation system will show you real time availability.

If you’re booking late and grabbing one of the last remaining cabins, use the discount code GrooveCruiseChris (How do I use this code?) to save $50 per person (up to $200/cabin).

Bonus: This is on top of the $50/person onboard credit that Groove Cruise is giving to anyone booking right now.

Specialty Dining Available

Specialty dining was a big hit on GCCABO, so it’s back for GCMIA. All food in the main buffet and dining room is free and included with every cabin booking. This is just a little upgrade for those looking for an even more unique experience.

Here’s the prices:

  • Specialty Dinners: $30 pre-sale, $35 onboard
  • Specialty Brunches: $30 pre-sale, $35 onboard

You can make reservations in your Whet Account (if you booked a cabin, then you know where to go to purchase this add-on).

Also, artists (TBA) will be performing exclusive sets during the brunches.

Here’s what on the menu:

 

Grand Turk Beach Party Details

It’s Groove Cruise, so you know there’s going to be an epic beach party. Naturally, this is included in the cabin cost, but there’s an optional open bar package available for just $75/person. In your Whet Account, choose the ‘Grand Turk Beach Party Drinks Package’ add-on if you want in on it.

Loyalty Gear and Merch Store Hours

Did you know Groove Cruise has 4 tiers of loyalty giveaways? Called Veterans, Officers, Legends, and Admirals, you earn bragging rights and some exclusive gear for attending multiple Groove Cruise sailings.

Deep House Yoga Both Sea Days

Deep House Yoga is an awesome way to start your day. It’s really cool to listen to some good music while stretching out your muscles from dancing all night. Groove Cruise Miami 2017 will feature deep house yoga on both sea days.

There will also be Ping Pong and Mini Golf events featuring Groove Cruise headliners. This is a cool way to kick back and hang out with your favorite artists off the dance floor.

Incorrect Afterhours

The Incorrect afterhours parties are a highlight of any Groove Cruise sailing. If you don’t plan on staying up late every night, definitely make sure to catch this party.

Online Check In

For the #GCFAM who have already booked, be sure to check your email. You should have received online check in instructions.

At this time, you can set up your onboard account and print your boarding docs and luggage tags. Be sure to look over any required documentation to make sure you’re good to go when you show up at the port.

See You on the Ship

I’ve got set times coming up, so keep an eye out for that post. Less than a week to go! See you on the ship.

Uber or Lyft to/from the Port

I’m a big proponent of ride sharing services like Uber and Lyft. They’re cheaper, easier, and nicer than taking a taxi. The Port of Miami is separated from public transit by a bridge which is walkable, but you really are better off just calling a car.

If you’re not already set up with these services, here’s some free ride credit when signing up:

  • Uber – use code chrisp336
  • Lyft – use code RIDETORAVE
