Several cruise lines offer theme cruises that focus on special interests, hobbies and special events, and I've given some examples below. You can see a complete list of theme sailings on our website by clicking here. For a list of theme cruise departures by type, click any link below.

Food & Wine cruises provide opportunities to meet talented chefs, attend culinary demonstrations and learn new techniques and recipes in hands-on classes. Examples include the America's Test Kitchen voyages aboard Holland America and the regionally focused James Beard Culinary Cruise Collection of Windstar.

Aboard Silversea, pick up some cooking skills during Relais & Chateaux L'Ecole des Chefs trips, or enjoy lectures and tastings on its Wine Series. On Crystal ships, Wine & Food Festivals share the gastronomic traditions of the sailing destination.

History & Culture departures can feature guest lecturers, performances and special events. Regent brings PBS personalities and others on board for its Spotlight on Public Broadcasting cruises, with panel discussions and presentations covering the arts, current events and more. Cunard offers the Journey of Genealogy in November, where genealogy pros will help some guests, officers and crew uncover the stories of their ancestors. Oceania has designed the Alaska Explorer Youth Program to help kids ages 5 to 12 learn about the Last Frontier on its Alaska sailings.

Hobby & Sports themes cover golf, soccer, bridge and more. We offer 2018 World Cup Cruises with Azamara and Celebrity and Monaco Grand Prix departures with Azamara and Windstar.

Music getaways will appeal to those who enjoy live performances, such as jazz aboard Crystal and opera on certain Paul Gauguin Cruises and Ponant departures. Ponant also hosts the Piano Festival at Sea. Cunard guests can attend rehearsals of Great Britain's National Symphony Orchestra as its conductor and musicians prepare for performances aboard two trans-Atlantic crossings.

Theater & the Arts trips celebrate dancing, acting, writing and other disciplines. They include the Crystal on Broadway series and Film & Theatre Festival from Crystal and performances by soloists from top dance companies on Silversea's ballet departures.
 
Special Events cruises can be centered around world-famous celebrations, historic occasions, sporting events or special guests. Join discussions and Q&A sessions with World War II veterans on The Greatest Generations Foundation cruise with Cunard in July, for example, or take in the profusion of pink blooms in Japan during Cherry Blossom Festival sailings next spring with Holland America. Also available from Holland America: Royal Ascot and Summer Solstice at Stonehenge sailings this summer.

Meanwhile, Disney offers Star Wars Day at Sea, with Star Wars-themed youth activities and screenings of the films, and Marvel Day at Sea, where The Avengers, Spider-Man and others are on hand for meet and greets.

Among our Science & the Environment sailings are whale-watching cruises in Alaska with Silversea and the Wildlife Discovery Series in French Polynesia, developed by Paul Gauguin Cruises in partnership with the Wildlife Conservation Society. World Space Week departures from Cunard introduce passengers to astronauts, scientists and new shows in the ship's planetarium.

Health & Well-Being options include Crystal's Mind, Body & Spirit voyages, focusing on strength and balance through lectures and classes in yoga, tai chi and more. Dr. Andrew Weil and a team of health and wellness experts will join Wellness with Dr. Weil sailings from Seabourn, hosting workshops and discussions.

Some ships offer themed programs that appeal particularly to families traveling with children. The DreamWorks Experience on Royal Caribbean revolves around characters from "Shrek," "Madagascar," "Kung Fu Panda" and other DreamWorks Animation films. On Carnival ships, Seuss at Sea brings the whimsical world of the Cat in the Hat to the line's youth programs, dining and entertainment.

Lastly, Vacations To Go offers cruises specially designed for solo travelers. On our Singles Cruises, we provide our own onboard hosts to organize exclusive cocktail parties, mixers, games, group excursions, single-mingle dining and more. Some of these are themed, with Halloween, New Year's Eve and Mardi Gras sailings.
