About Gentlemen Hosts®


Gentlemen Hosts aboard the QE2

A remarkable program, The Gentlemen Host ® Program exists within the cruise line industry. With a growing number of women traveling independently, prominent cruise lines and river boat companies make it possible for interesting, sociable and admirable men to serve as dance hosts aboard their vessels. Our charming Gentlemen Hosts® accompany all guests as invited goodwill ambassadors, dance partners and public relations representatives.

Single men, 40 to 70 years old, who are still young at heart.
Very sociable gentlemen with excellent manners. Good minglers who enjoy dining, dancing, games, shipboard activities, and touring ashore with all guests.
Always dancers! Especially men who have taken social ballroom dance classes.
Kind, honorable and smiling community-minded volunteers.

Round-trip airfare for some cruises
Often inclusion in shore excursions
A gratuities allowance from most cruise lines
A 20% discount from Jos. A. Bank men's clothier

The Gentlemen Host ® Program has become a successful and highly respected part of the cruise line industry. Many of our Hosts have backgrounds in the areas of business, law, finance, travel, medicine, education and military. Most of our Hosts are retired or semi-retired. We do not recognize or require a specific dance "certificate" nor do we require attendance at any school for dance hosts. We ensure that our Hosts meet the highest standards through referral interviews, personal meetings, and Dance Reviews with professional Dancer Instructors. This level of quality and integrity allows us to provide the cruise lines with our Hosts who are caring, outgoing, and excellent social dancers. We continue to raise the dance host standards within the cruise industry.
