Themed Cruise Deals

If you're looking for something unconventional for your next holiday, why not hop on a themed cruise? Australians are in love with themed cruises, and cruise lines have taken notice. Companies are now offering themed cruises that cover a wide range of topics and interests.

Themed cruises are the perfect opportunity for first-time cruisers and well-seasoned passengers to meet new people while enjoying their favourite hobby. A leisurely cruise is an ideal place for you and like-minded people to throw yourselves into your shared beloved pastime, recreational activity, or entertainment. Whether you’re a jazz lover or a fan of 90s music, a golf enthusiast or a self-proclaimed foodie, an enthusiastic dancer or a devoted yogi, there’s a theme cruise for you!

Three Categories of Themed Cruises

Full-Ship Themed Cruise

Choose wisely because the theme will set the mood for the entirety of your cruise holiday. Full-ship themed cruises appeal to a wider audience, and all passengers can take part in themed activities and entertainment. From the pool deck to the main dining room, every onboard venue will be utilised to reflect the theme. Themed cruises can either be offered by a cruise line or fully chartered by an independent company.

Partial-Ship Themed Cruise

Unlike full-ship themed cruises, partial-ship themed cruises don’t take up the entire cruise ship. Special interest groups can draw in people with similar interests by booking several staterooms across various categories. These interests can range from stand-up comedy shows to golf. These groups usually don’t interfere with the rest of the holiday activity on board; however, there may be certain times when the group has booked out public spaces.

Theme-Inspired Cruise

Cruise lines usually offer themed sailings. What makes these cruises special is that they tend to be normal sailings with a bonus added to the standard itinerary, such as special interest activities or talks from guest speakers. When you're on a theme-inspired cruises, be prepared for an extraordinary experience whether it is a wine tasting with locally sourced vino or a special musical performance.
