Groove Cruise, the original electronic music cruise ship festival, approaches an exciting milestone this year. The event brand's organizers have announced the 2020 California sailing will run from October 15th-18th, revealing that it will take place on The Norwegian Bliss - the largest ship in the history of the series.

Not only is it the 20-story vessel twice the size of any in Groove Cruise's 16-year history, it is the biggest that has ever been to California according to a Whet Travel statement. Atop The Norwegian Bliss will be a water park, go-kart track, and laser tag in addition to 30 restaurants and bars on a boardwalk.

Of course, that's not even mentioning the core entertainment offerings of the time-tested cruise ship festival. More than 60 artists representing every shade of the electronic music spectrum will provide 72 hours of nonstop music for revelers fortunate enough to attend.
