Weird and Wonderful Themed Cruises

Posted June 25th, 2016

The world of cruising has always been an exciting place. Larger-than-life amenities, outside-the-box itineraries and special experiences – while on board, passengers have the opportunities to relax, learn, dance, drink, eat, play, explore and so much more. With the introduction of themed cruises, passengers’ interests and passions were catered to even further, allowing them to indulge in unique voyages and create unforgettable memories. With an emphasis on ‘unique’, the team here at Cruiseabout have put together a list of some of the weird and wonderful themed cruises on offer in 2016 and 2017. Enjoy!

Walker Stalker Cruise

Themed around the hit TV show ‘The Walking Dead’, this weirdly wonderful cruise is all about zombies, blood and gore. While on board, passengers will get the chance to meet and greet stars from the show, watch demonstrations by first-class make-up experts and mingle with fellow zombie enthusiasts! Hugely popular on its debut, the 2016 cruise’s legacy will be continued in 2017 – sailing from Miami on the Norwegian Pearl, the Walker Stalker cruise will be in full swing from February 3-6.

Craft Beer Cruise with Un-Cruise Adventures

Possibly weird to some but a whole lot of wonderful for others, Un-Cruise Adventures’ selection of craft beer-themed cruises provides passengers with the usual highlights of an Un-Cruise voyage plus the chance to learn about, discuss and drink local craft beer. Special beer experts and brewers will join you on board and prepare fascinating presentations, tastings and tours. The next cruises depart in October 2016.
