Whet Travel’s Fall 'Groove Cruise' Survives Hurricane Wilma While Cruisers Danced and Partied the Nights Away…

WhetTravel.com is a full service, online Travel Agency that specializes in providing young professionals with unforgettable vacations. Royal Caribbean’s enormous Explorer of the Seas® provided the perfect venue to meet and party together, while cruising to some the most exotic locations throughout the world. Unbeknownst to those on the “Groove Cruise”, this 7-day party cruise, they left port headed for the islands while the strongest hurricane recorded in Caribbean history ripped through their path.

This October, over 200 Young Professionals from all over the country gathered in Miami for the 2nd Annual Fall “Groove Cruise”. WhetTravel.com recruited 7 of the hottest DJ’s from the US and UK to keep the boat rockin’ while cruisers danced and partied night and day. Little did the cruisers know that they would be partying while their ship navigated around the most intense category 5 hurricane ever recorded in the Caribbean. As they threw their parties onboard Royal Caribbean’s Explorer of the Seas® and set up their DJ’s on white sand beaches throughout the islands of the Eastern Caribbean, Hurricane Wilma lurked close by, keeping the ship captain and all the cruisers on alert….but it didn’t stop WhetTravel.com from bringin’ the house down!    

Despite the possibility of Wilma crossing their path as they sailed over crystal aqua Caribbean waters, those aboard the Groove Cruise were distracted by spending days hanging by the pool while sipping cocktails, climbing the rock wall, playing water volleyball and exploring the islands of the Eastern Caribbean. With destinations like San Juan, Puerto Rico; St. Maarten; St. Thomas and Nassau, Bahamas, it was easy to forget about a Hurricane…unless of course that “hurricane” was a giant cocktail served with an umbrella.

At Night, Whet Travel diverted its cruisers attention from the threat of Wilma by setting up their DJ’s outside under the stars in the Solarium or inside the two story onboard club to rip up the turntables late into the nights…always commanding the audience into a dancing frenzy! The funky beats dropped by guys like Lee Burridge from London, Scooter and Lavelle from San Diego, DJ Kalendr, Greg Bauer and John Curley from Chicago and Grand Rapids Michigan’s Shannon Williams created an unreal vibe throughout the crowd and kept them dancing in the 20 person hot-tubs and on lounge chairs and begging for more until the wee hours…every night of the week!

From theme parties to pub crawls to exotic isles and live hip-hop and house music under the stars, WhetTravel.com brings its cruisers on a vacation that will not be forgotten. One week on the Groove Cruise makes the work year tolerable…it’s why you go to work. It’s the trip that leaves you with unforgettable memories, lifelong friendships and wondering if such an amazing week was ever possible. Not even a Category 5 hurricane could stop this party cruise!
