Themed Cruises for 2019

Themed Cruises for 2019

Calling all sea lovers! Think of a celebrity you’ve always wanted to meet, a hobby you really enjoy, or something new and exciting that you’ve always wanted to try. Now picture yourself doing all these things on a cruise ship. That’s right. A themed cruise. The number of themed cruises is rapidly increasing and with such a wide variety, how will you ever decide which themed cruise is the right one for you? To help you out, we’ve put together a list of themed cruises for 2019. Before booking a themed cruise, let’s talk about the different types of themed cruises that are available.

According to the Cruise Critic, themed cruises are categorized into three separate groups. 

Full-Ship Theme Cruise:Choose your theme wisely because it will set the tone for your sailing. Everyone onboard can participate in the themed activities and entertainment, and every onboard venue is in use, from the pool-deck for concerts to the dining room, where special menus might be featured. Full-ship theme cruises can be either fully chartered by an independent company or offered by the cruise line itself. 

Partial-Ship Theme Cruise:Not all theme cruises engulf the entire ship. Special interest groups can purchase a number of cabins in different categories and market to people who would be interested in the activity, which can range from scrapbooking to baseball. These groups usually have little impact on the other vacationers onboard, although some of the public spaces may be taken over by the group.

Theme-Inspired Cruise:Cruise lines commonly advertise themed sailings, but these tend to be regular sailings with some extra special-interest activities or guest speakers added to the usual programming. On these sailings, you might have a regionally inspired wine tasting or guest musical performer onboard.

Now that we understand the different types of themed cruises available, let’s combine what you love to do with a much-needed vacation with one of these themed cruises. 

  • Motorcycle Cruise – The world’s only biker rally on a cruise ship. The dress code on this ship is casual, although bikers will have to bring along leather attire for a couple of the ‘leather required’ dinners. The entertainment ranges from comedians to treasure chest contests to pirate biker bingo and so much more.
