There's been a lot of talk about what's going to happen now that Winter Music Conference and Ultra Music Festival are taking place on two different weekends in March. When will all the good DJs be here? When will all of the amazing after parties happen? Well, you don't need to stress anymore, because you can just go on a cruise with a bunch of DJs instead.

Yeah, you read that right. From January 21 to 24, 2011, The Miami Groove Cruise will be setting sail for the Bahamas, and starting at $459 (for inside Quad occupancy), you can party with 46 DJs on the slate so far, among them Oscar G, Boris, Darude, and MindControl. There will be pool parties, pre-parties, after parties, and beach parties -- and everything's included.

The whole thing starts on January 20, with a TBA South Beach "Pre-Party." You'll leave the Port of Miami at 4 p.m. the next day, and head for Nassau and Great Stirrup Cay, all the while listening to some amazing sets, hanging poolside with the talented artists, and avoiding calypso bands at all costs, as this is strictly a dance party.

Meals are obviously included, and you'll get to board the Norwegian Sky, which boasts 10 bars and lounges. And maybe it'll all help you forget about the big decision you have ahead of you: WMC or UMF?

See below for a teaser video.
