This year, GC Miami will make landfall for two days on the world-renowned Cococay and Nassau ports. The first stop on the oceanic expedition, will be on Cococay’s 140 acre private island beach party experience - with a main and underground stage. GCFam can find themselves snorkeling, scuba diving, racing WaveRunners, hiking breathtaking nature trails, or simply indulging in the local cuisine, bars, and shops.

GC will also dock on the largest city and capital of the Bahamas, Nassau. Attendees will be greeted by a historical party experience at Fort Charlotte. Just a quick stroll from the port, Groove Cruisers have the chance to discover the Fort’s hidden tunnels, secret dungeons, and 42 massive cannons. There will also be a 19th century military reenactment and cannon firing demonstration by the Bahamas Defense Force - truly bringing the Fort’s history to life.

Beyond its perfectly diverse music programming, Groove Cruise’s new Royal Caribbean home will treat attendees with the finest on-board comfort and luxuries, including GC’s first all inclusive food and drink packages, high-class dining experiences, and table service accommodations, plus activities like on-board bungee trampolines, rock climbing, casinos, and more.
