Dance can express many human emotions: grief, fear, longing, and undeserved pride in your passable imitation of a swan. Take yourself for a spin with this Groupon.

Held on The Queen Mary from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. on Saturday, May 18, the Poseidon Dance Party celebrates Long Beach’s Pride Weekend with an open-air dance floor serenaded by international DJs and producers Manny Lehman and Ryan Kenney, lit by a laser show, and heated up by a Hunky Sailor contest.
Though this merchant sometimes offers a discounted price online, this Groupon is still the best deal available.
Since its maiden voyage in 1936, The Queen Mary has cultivated a colorful history: she transported iconic figures from Winston Churchill to Fred Astaire across the ocean blue, and even served as the world's fanciest troop transport during World War II. However, her historical exploits are more than matched by her modern-day splendor. Now at home in the Port of Long Beach, the venerable ship pairs her art deco trappings with stunning views of the Pacific Ocean and nearby city. Guests at the onboard hotel recreate timeless transoceanic luxury during stays in her 346 staterooms (which include nine full suites). Their stays often include multiple trips to onboard restaurants such as the award-winning Sir Winston’s and Chelsea Chowder House & Bar, as well as appearances at the weekly Champagne Sunday Brunch served in the ship’s Grand Salon.
Of course, history remains an important draw for this singular ship. An onboard museum recounts the facts and figures of the ship's glory days, and tours touch upon some of her notable ghostly inhabitants and haunted areas amidships. This combination of contemporary amenities and historical charm make The Queen Mary an in-demand venue for conferences and events; fortunately, the ship boasts 80,000 square feet of event space spread across 17 sumptuous salons, as well as a trilevel, 45,000-square-foot Exhibit Hall.
