ATTENTION: This blog was recently updated with new information in August 2019.
Did you know that some cruises offer you the opportunity to get together with individuals who share similar interests as you do? CruiseExperts.com has the entire scoop on theme cruises. There are theme cruises galore and they have activities and events specific to the theme. Participation is always optional and watching can be just as fun.
Some examples of the most popular theme cruises include:
1) Culinary cruises
Bring out your inner chef as a passenger on one of these themed vacations. Celebrity Cruises is well known for offering foodies the trip of a lifetime. For example, Celebrity’s 12-night Mediterranean cruise that leaves from Barcelona brings famous chefs onboard to teach classes and talk about innovative cooking techniques and the science behind mixology. Once you learn what to do, you will be able to partake in cooking demonstrations and return home with some fabulous recipes.
2) Holistic health and wellness cruises
If you are a holistic health aficionado or want to know more about it, then you will love this theme cruise. Engage your mind, body, and spirit through meditation, tai-chi and yoga. In many cases, healthy spa foods, like salads using local produce and greens, are available so that you can return home looking and feeling better than ever! AND take advantage of nutritionist and fitness trainers on board. Contact CruiseExperts.com to help you find a wellness-themed cruise.
3) Music cruises
A music cruise is perfect for the music lover. For example, onboard Norwegian Pearl, you will be able to vacation with musicians such as Lyle Lovett, Joe Purdy, and Jim Bianco. This seven-day adventure has concerts and you can even interact with these incredibly talented songwriters!
4) Nickelodeon and Dreamworks at Sea cruises
Not just for kids, these themed cruises are just as fun for adults. Vacation onboard four Norwegian Cruise Line ships that let children interact with the stars of Nickelodeon shows. Imagine how much your kids will enjoy getting to hang out with characters like Dora the Explorer and SpongeBob SquarePants. You can attend the Nickelodeon game shows where your kids can participate in messy but fun-filled events like pie-throwing contests and green slime mobs!
On six Royal Caribbean ships, sail with the Dreamworks characters from Madagascar, Shrek, Kung Fu Panda and more. Shows, meals, and movies give you a complete Dreamworks experience. They also offer a Barbie cruise!
5) Wine cruises
Some cruise lines such as Celebrity sail to famous wine-producing regions of the world like France, Spain and Portugal. During these trips, local guest vintners will come on the ship and tell their story of what goes into producing that incredible bottle of Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon. If you miss one gathering, don’t worry! There are usually plenty of lectures and classes offered on wine-themed cruises ranging from “Wine Appreciation 101” to “Wine and Food Pairing.”
