Just when we thought cruising couldn’t get any more fun. Going on a theme cruise is one of the top trends in travel right now! And if you’re too busy to enjoy your passion on land, having time to embrace it while cruising is the perfect combination! Plus, the big bonus is that you only have to unpack once to see popular destinations.
Photographing the world is one of the best ways to remember your vacation and on Cunard, guests can learn expert photography skills from professionals onboard while exploring scenic destinations around the world.
Or if you’re a book lover, you could open up a new chapter with Cunard on the Queen Mary 2’s Literature Festival at Sea, an exclusive transatlantic voyage with some of the best-loved authors and thinkers from both sides of the pond. Through a partnership with O, The Oprah Magazine, Holland America Line ships provide engaging wellness and personal growth activities including book clubs.
I know there are lots of sport enthusiasts out there so P&O Cruises Australia is the one for you! Tennis fans can tune into the Australian Open on the ship’s giant poolside screen on a five-night cruise in January 2019. Guests can also participate in Q&As and photo opportunities with tennis pros! Similarly, they offer viewings of the Melbourne Cup for horse racing fans and the Australian Rugby League’s State of Origin match.
Now, we can’t talk about cruising and not talk about food! P&O Cruises UK offers award-winning wine expert and foodie Olly Smith, who created The Glass House wine bar on P&O Cruises UK ships, to share his expertise on board. Smith has also created an excursion in Madeira that includes an exclusive wine lodge and vineyard tour at Blandy's.
If you have a taste for barbecue and beer, hop on board Carnival Cruise Line’s newest ship Carnival Horizon! Food Network star and famed restaurateur Guy Fieri brings his rockin’ taste to the first-ever Guy's Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que Smokehouse Brewhouse, a full-service restaurant with a menu of BBQ favorites and craft beer brewed right on board.
Fashion on the high seas is at its best with styles from around the world. Cunard offers the second annual Transatlantic Fashion Week on the luxurious flagship Queen Mary 2 in September. During the one-week sailing from the U.K. to New York, guests will experience a glamorous array of catwalk shows, fashion presentations, photography exhibitions, and more.
Costa Cruises also joins the fashion train with supermodel and fashion show producer Jessica Minh Anh. She transforms select Costa Cruises into an ocean runway to premier seasonal haute couture collections featuring picturesque city skylines around the world.
And if you’re in to live performances, music and Broadway shows, start with AIDA Cruises to showcase your singing talents on “The Voice of the Ocean” competition series, or enjoy the sounds and sights of Broadway on Seabourn with “An Evening with Tim Rice,” which highlights some of his most loved work from – "Jesus Christ Superstar" to "The Lion King."
