If you like the idea of a cruise holiday, but are worried that you will get ‘bored onboard’, why not treat yourself to one of the many ‘themed cruises’ available, and spend your days cooking at sea, dancing to your favourite band, or enjoying food and wine from around the world.
Themed cruises may be a new travel trend, but recently released statistics confirm that they are already extremely popular with American, British, German and Australian travellers, and those holidaymakers looking for something a little bit different.
Celebrity Cruises will hold their first-ever “Top Chef: The Cruise” in April 2013, aboard the magnificent Celebrity Constellation. Fans of the popular TV show will recognise many of the celebrity chefs onboard, and will have the opportunity to watch quick-fire cooking demos, choose from Top Chef menu options, and meet their favourite chefs during a one-hour cocktail party. Stopping at Cozumel and Key West, this four-night themed cruise departs from Miami.
Beatles Fans will have the opportunity to take their own ‘Magical Mystery Tour’ in March 2013, aboard Royal Caribbean’s Allure of the Seas. The seven-night themed cruise departs from Ft. Lauderdale, and guarantees to be a weeklong floating celebration of all things John, Paul, George and Ringo.
Connoisseurs will appreciate the 12-day food and wine themed cruise offered by Crystal Cruises. Celebrating the culinary arts of Australasia and Bali, this magnificent cruise includes complimentary cooking lessons, wine tasting, cocktail mixology classes, and a whole collection of world-class chefs. The cruise will sail twice in 2013, from Brisbane to Auckland in January, and from Sydney to Bali in February.
So why not take a themed cruise in 2013, and spend your holidays sailing under the stars aboard a luxury vessel!
