Pre-Cruise Plans:

See below for initial details of the pre-cruise parties/events and hotel information…..

On the evening of Friday, February 3, 2017, we are planning a polka get together at one of the local bars on Fort Lauderdale Beach (More details to follow within the next few weeks!) We’re planning live music with a polka jam band, which will include some of the musicians from the bands going on the Polka Brews Cruise.

On the evening of Saturday, February 4, 2017 we will have a Pre-Cruise Party at the fabulous Sea Club Resort. Located at 619 Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd., this hotel is literally steps away from Fort Lauderdale Beach! The hotel has been gracious enough to give us use of their facility to hold our Pre-Cruise party with live polka music by the Polka Country Musicians.

The Sea Club Resort is offering a minimum 2-night room special for those arriving 2 or more days prior to the cruise. The hotel is offering a special rate of $188+tax per night with a 2 night stay, $174+tax for 3 nights…group rates are in effect for a limited time at the Sea Club Resort. This hotel offers complimentary WIFI, beach chairs & towels, Continental Breakfast, and a welcome cocktail. A full service restaurant/bar is onsite.

To reserve your room at the Sea Club Resort for 2 or more nights….
1–Email Maryrose at polkabrewscruise@aol.com and choose room with 2 double beds or 1 king. Reservation is guaranteed with a credit card, however, the credit card will not be charged until check out.
2–You may book on your own by using the hotel’s official website www.seaclubresort.com  Click on their reservation page, complete the required information, and enter “Polka Cruise Group” in the box labeled *Company* and in the *Notes* section.
