SuzieCruise and Maryannb I think I can answer both questions but the answer will not be very satisfying. My daughter has danced for Carnival for 5 years and the dance classes depend on who gives the lesson. Dancers volunteer for this duty and teach whatever they know best. So while Line dancing may have been on the Holiday when Joe was cruising, if the crew changed it could be Hip Hop now.
The cruises I have been on had a couple of things, Hip hop and Line dancing for example. Only once have I found any parterning lessons and they were "sponsered" by the Stage Band. ( My daughter partnered with me, what a thrill that was)
My wife does not typically come with me and while partner dances are not common it is fun to have someone to line up with. I have never failed to make a quick aquantance just for that 30 min. Once it worked into a friendship for the week. Turns out we had a lot in common including our spouses, neither of whom would come to the dance lessons. ( and yes just friendship
if you were thinking something different)
Watch the capers to find out when, but they won't say what, just go and dance whatever they teach. You might even get one of the male dancers from time to time.
