Noel McKee

Owner/Managing Director

Noel McKee is the current OWNER/MANAGING DIRECTOR of DANCIN’ AT SEA®. She and her husband reside in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida with their son and two dogs. Noel and her family enjoy boating, traveling and working out. When not booking cruises, Noel teaches group fitness classes and is a licensed cosmetologist.

Noel grew up in her mom’s dance studio, Germantown Studio of Dance, and has been dancing since the age of 2. She performed on the second DANCIN’ AT SEA® cruise when she was only 8 years old. Noel started working with DANCIN’ AT SEA® in 2013, accompanying dance groups. In 2018, she began working very closely with Robin Smith in preparation for the acquisition of DANCIN’ AT SEA®.

Being a dancer, growing up in a dance studio and working as a DANCIN’ AT SEA® representative have been very beneficial to ensure a smooth transition in continuing the legacy of DANCIN’ AT SEA. Noel is looking forward to working with former and new dance studios and a future filled with cruising!
