Are you a fan of caviar, Frank Sinatra, knitting, or Elvis? If you answered “yes,” you aren’t alone. There are millions of you out there—enough for cruise companies to form special packages so that you can mingle with your fellow fans. In a previous blog I listed some of the hottest theme cruises on the water. Here now is another list featuring more specialty cruises, which seemingly cater to every passion under the sun.
If you are a fan of the TV series “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Angel” this is your ultimate fantasy come true. For seven days you will take over the ship with the shows’ stars. Dine and take photos with your favorite cast members while cruising the Alaskan coastline. For more information click here.
“Girls Get-A-Way Cruise”
Ladies… Mother’s Day is just around the corner and if you are looking for the perfect escape this may be it. The cruise’s motto is “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.” And according to the cruise’s website, “Mothers and daughters,” “friends from way back” and “women in your church circle,” will receive a pampering package they won’t soon forget. The four-night inspirational retreat sets sail this November. For more information click here.
“Murder Mystery Cruise”
It’s a trip “to die for” (okay, indulge me here). This cruise will delight your inner Sherlock Holmes with a tour around England. The trip features an expert on ghosts and the supernatural who will take you on the trail of Jack the Ripper and other haunted European locations. For more information click here.
“The Rock Boat”
It’s billed as the “world’s greatest floating music festival,” and it’s easy to see why. The cruise features Sister Hazel and Toad the Wet Sprocket (among others) who promise to “rock the waters” of Miami, Grand Cayman and Jamaica. For more information click here.
Does your love for the game of chess have you holed up indoors for hours? Are you constantly being badgered by people who tell you to get out more? Well, here’s a solution–set sail to the eastern Caribbean, in a floating game room where you can learn new moves and then try them out on fellow passengers. For more information click here.
“Love Me Tender Cruise”
It’s like a floating Vegas. Join the King (or at least many versions of his likeness) to Bermuda. The cruise includes performances that span Elvis’s career, from gospel to rock, and it even gives Elvis look-alike passengers the chance to perform themselves. For more information click here.
