Poll Position: Could Theme Cruising be your Style?

June 17, 2013 | By | 1 Comment

Theme Cruise Spice Market
Soaking up the sun, umbrella drink in hand … this conjures up the image of a postcard-perfect cruise. But if you could sail to the sounds of your favorite musician or throughout your country of heritage, sampling authentic dishes along the way, would you be interested in spicing up your routine with a theme cruise?
More cruisers are testing the waters (pun intended) by cruising up a notch, whether it involves an onboard cooking class, tai chi lessons or a few bucket-list excursions. So, we wanted to get an idea of which themes our members would be most interested in. Who knows, maybe your next cruise will include dance lessons from Dancing with the Stars professionals or a fundraiser for your favorite cause.
What we asked: If you were to take a theme cruise, which one would it be?
What they said: Neck-and-neck for first place, favorite musicians and foodie themes snagged the majority of votes. Trailing behind were TV series and sports-related themes. Lucky for you, most of our featured theme cruises are focused on food or music — sometimes both.
Our current selection of foodie themed cruises includes onboard classes, tastings and pairings with Michelin Star chefs; escorted trips to local wineries; and tours of exotic markets throughout Finland, Turkey and Vietnam. Musical themed cruises offer passengers exclusive concerts and meet and greets with performers such as Lynyrd Skynyrd, Trace Adkins, Weezer and The Platters.
Torn between tunes and Top Chef dishes? Check out the Wine, Dine and Music cruise with singer and songwriter Kenny Loggins, renowned chef John Ash and more famous faces aboard Royal Caribbean’s Brilliance of the Seas this fall.

      What time zone is your Cruise Clock set to? I am leaving on a cruise November 1st at 4:00PM from Miami. My cruise clock says 123 days, which is correct, and I would have sailed an hour and a half ago. The clock says it’s 7 hours, 47 minutes from now. I’m confused!
