Dance the Night Away

Cruise Ship Dance Host Opportunities for Gentlemen in the UK

Gentleman dance hosts, are very popular on the Saga cruise ships. When a lady travels without a male companion, it enhances their holiday to have a friendly partner to dance and socialise with. This is where we come in, sourcing gentleman dancers who wish to become  cruise ship dance hosts.  We are looking for fit healthy gentlemen who are prepared to join in the fun of cruising. 

Your Contribution

Saga is known for creating happy ships, both for the passengers and the crew. You will play a part in this by socialising and dancing with the passengers. This is particularly important for the unaccompanied ladies onboard.


When on-Board

There are usually two hosts on-board, and the responsibilities are the same for both. You will be required to:

  • Dance and Socialise with lady passengers
  • Attend Dance Classes
  • Attend Cocktail Parties and Other Events
  • Host a Table for The Evening Meals

It is also encouraged to volunteer to go ashore with excursions as The Saga Representative. On cruises that last four weeks or more, four hosts will be on-board.

Two hosts share a twin room when on-board the cruise and  receive allowances as part of their terms and conditions. When on the Cruise hosts are answerable to the Cruise Director.

Dancing Experience

As a minimum, every gentleman that works as a dance host should be proficient in:

  • Waltz
  • Quickstep
  • Social Foxtrot
  • Rumba
  • Cha Cha
  • Jive

Health and Age Requirements

We require  gentlemen to be aged between 50 and 75, be in good health when joining our agency.
