Shimmy & Sail!

We loved the views!

Um, dois, três, quatro…dança! Last Sunday, INY attended one of Allen Batista Travel’s themed cruises.  This summer, we’ve been to secret dinners, twelve course pasta tastings, burlesque school, gay dance parties, and so much more, but this was probably the most unique!

After leaving from the New York Skyport Marina, the three hour cruise featured a Zumba class (with a fantastic playlist!), followed by a healthy and tasty lunch, live Brazilian music by Dende & Hahahaes (they’re awesome- get their CD!), a belly dance performance, a back massage, and group samba lessons.


We recommend wearing workout clothes and sneakers for the Zumba class and then changing into something cute and boat-like to enjoy the rest of the afternoon. Also, don’t forget a cold bottle of water and perhaps some snacks to munch on as you soak in the East River breeze and gorgeous views of Manhattan’s skyline. Bring your ID- a cash bar (with reasonably priced drinks!) is also available.  We had a fabulous, fabulous afternoon.

Sounds too good to be true, right?  While it may cost a little more than you’d spend for an afternoon, it’s certainly worth it.

This week, NY Daily News’ Deal of the Day program is having a #CruiseWeek extravaganza!  We’re so excited that we can go on another cruise (Zumba, salsa, comedy, samba, or belly dance) for more than 50% off!  Click here to get the amazing deal!  Grab your friends and sail away for an experience unlike any other.
