Do you have a hobby you love, or an interest you want to explore? Ask your professional travel advisor about themed cruises that can immerse you in activities you enjoy, with the added attraction of visiting an exotic port or two. There are themed cruises on topics as diverse as dance, motorcycles, scrapbooking, holistic therapies, food and wine, sports, cats – and many more.
Lots of themed cruises focus on music. There’s a week-long Jazz Cruise on the Celebrity Summit, scheduled to depart Miami in January with more than 100 jazz musicians on board and ready to perform. The ship will call on the beautiful islands of Curacao and Aruba, too. And that’s just one example; other music-themed cruises will surround you with the sounds of rock, country, hip-hop, soul, classical, disco, and other genres.
Some themed cruises are based on popular television shows and movies, like Star Wars, Top Chef or The Golden Girls. For fans of Star Trek, the mission to explore strange new worlds will continue aboard Royal Caribbean’s Mariner of the Seas, departing in February from Port Canaveral. The cruise will include themed events, activities, and parties, with Star Trek actors and personalities onboard to join the fun.Cunard Line has announced a series of themed cruises for 2022 that will celebrate culture, literature, symphony music, theater and design; these include the line’s first-ever Art & Design Week voyage, launching in August on the Queen Mary 2. As the ship crosses the Atlantic from Southampton to New York, guests will enjoy master classes and onboard exhibitions that celebrate the best of design from the past, present, and future.
Bridge enthusiasts can sharpen their game aboard the elegant ships of Silversea, which has a Bridge at Sea program available on a variety of ships during 2021 and 2022. Participants can take daily lessons and play under the supervision of expert teachers certified by the American Contract Bridge League.
Before you book your themed cruise, find out if it’s a full-ship, partial ship or theme-inspired cruise. On a full-ship themed cruise, the entire ship is devoted to the theme, making it an immersive experience. On a partial-ship themed cruise, you’ll be part of a special-interest group on board, with themed spaces and activities just for your group. And, a theme-inspired cruise welcomes a small group of passengers who are interested in the theme, with special activities for you. To learn more, talk with Anita, your professional travel advisor.
