Not Your Typical Cruise Themes

The allure of a cruise is a popular choice for many travelers when planning a vacation. But not all cruises are alike. Some cruise lines revolve around an entire theme, some host theme nights and others cater to all types of people. Let’s explore.

Have you ever thought of going on a cruise that holds an international poker championship onboard? Well, it’s available onboard the luxury cruise liner Aegean Paradise. If ultimate leisure and gaming are your things, improve your performance and register for this year’s event, which is scheduled for December 15-17.

However, Aegean Paradise is just one of many examples of unique cruise experiences available. Theme cruises are another great way to combine your interests with a relaxing vacation, and can be a great option for first-time cruisers. Specifically, there are typically three types of theme cruises: The full-ship theme cruise, partial-ship theme cruise and theme-inspired cruise.

Full-Ship Theme Cruise – When selecting this option, be sure to select your theme wisely because it will set the tone for your entire vacation. On these cruises, everyone onboard can be a part of the themed activities and entertainment, which can include concerts, themed activities, competitions and the possibility to mingle with performers and guest celebrities. A popular choice is the “Top Chef at Sea” Cruise on the Regent Seven Seas. This cruise tends to appeal to a wider audience than some of the other ones out there.

Partial-Ship Theme Cruise – This is a great option that doesn’t overwhelm the entire ship. On these cruises, they have special interest groups that can purchase blocks of cabins, marketing to people who may be interested in an activity. These interests can range from knitting to scrapbooking to fitness to music.

Theme-Inspired Cruise – A lot of cruise lines advertise theme sailings, but in reality, these tend to be a regular offering with some extra special interest activities, guest speakers or entertainment options. On these sailings, you may be able to enjoy a regionally-inspired wine tasting, guest musical performances, fitness and wellness specialists, educational lecturers and so much more. In 2017, the Seabourn Cruise Line added a “Spa and Wellness with Dr. Andrew Weil”, which is meant to educate its passengers through classes and gatherings.

  • Music Cruises such as the New Kids on the Block theme, Beatles tribute theme, Country Cruising theme and so much more.
  • Food and Drink Cruises such as Flavors of Europe, California Beer Festival at Sea and so much more. Many of these feature craft bears, brewing demos and food pairings to die for.
  • Celebrity Cruises such as the TMC Classic cruise, National Review cruise and the Baseball Greats Cruise.
  • Health and Wellness Cruises such as Yoga, Great Alaskan Marathon, Sober and Cruise for Diabetes.
  • Hobby Cruises such as Craft, Ballroom Dancing, Alaskan Photography Adventures and so much more.
