Default Hosts for dancing

Love to dance and wondering if anyone knows of ships that have dance hosts and also dance lessons. Now that Dancing with the Stars is so popular it would enhance the cruises.................

HAL (Holland America) has both. But, keep in mind that the hosts are expected to dance with all the ladies without partners, and there are usually a lot more ladies than dance hosts. So, you may not get to dance quite as much as you would like. Better than no dancing, though!

Unfortunately, most of the major cruise lines eliminated dance hosts in recent years to cut costs. I believe that Holland America Lines and perhaps Celebrity Cruises still have them on longer voyages. Also, some of the "luxury" lines still have them.

No dance hosts that I know of, but Princess offered ballroom and line dance lessons on my last cruise.

Our Radiance cruise had dance instructors onboard who taught 3 ballroom dance classes in addition to what the stage crew teaches, usually a couple of line dance classes and swing or salsa. My wife and I dance ballroom every night in the Centrum or clubs, depending on which ship we're on.
