    Theme Cruises - What Would You Enjoy?

    Hi A few cruises have a common theme eg gardening etc. Are you are a fan of this type of vacation and more importantly if you could select a theme for a cruise what would it be? On a personal level I would enjoy a cruise which involved heavy metal music. I know a cruise line (I can't remember which and fully booked up before I found out) had Kiss onboard, I suspect many experienced cruisers would avoid this cruise.

    Mine would be a Symphony Orchestra playing theme music from the Cinema ,preferably John Williams, but popular classics would do.
    I would quite fancy a Big Band cruise it is realy something when the Celebrity band have a big band concert ....Taffy

      I'd like to do Joco Cruise Crazy, but the cost of a 6-night Caribbean cruise is pretty huge when you factor flights for such a short trip.

      We might try and incorporate it in to a longer trip to the United States. We shall see!

        I would love live theatre a good play , and how about a nice bouncy musical which would included any guests who wanted to be in the show, I always fancied myself in the chorus line, but I don't think I could achieve the high kicks now.
        What about a show on the lines such as Britain's got talent? CG

          You know that's why I like to go to the staff show on Princess, a bit of everything would be great say:

          Big band one night
          Rock
          Cinema (for those ships without MUTS)
          Theatre
          Musicals (like excerpts from the big shows)
          Different good professional singers
          Comedy
          Variety

          And so on ....

            I'd like to go on an 'Art Deco' 1920s-1940s themed cruise probably on a Cunard ship as I believe the decor would be harmonious. They could have lectures about the origins of Art Deco and the best places to visit with the best architecture and interiors, costume balls for the ladies to dress in period costumes, bands playing music from that era, Agatha Christie's 'Poirot' plays on in the theatre, whodunnit games instead of the normal trivia. The list is endless.

            Just think this style epitomises when cruising was at its most elegant and luxurious and with not too much effort it could be turned into a proper cruise theme.

              Being a big Moody Blues fan....saw them last week at Bournemouth this would be a great cruise for me.
              Saw this on the back of a fan's t-shirt who had attended this years cruise.

                Having a love of dancing then it has to be that.

                It was very pleasing to see the 'strictly Come Dancing' team arriving with their wardrobes on Ventura Monday.

                Indeed, they got to work early and had a selection of winning ladies various dresses on display in the Atrium before we departed.

                    We went on a Really Big Chorus cruise in 2006.....there were 130 people who learnt British Folk songs and works by Elgar over the week. I think there was about 180 of us with non-singing partners. We loved it, and have thought about doing one of these again.

                      Not in a weirdo type of way
                      But wife would certainly veto that idea.

                            Hi Wilba
                            Good memory ..he was only with the band for a couple of years and before my time of following...only Hayward, Lodge and Edge left nowadays and Graham Edge just about makes it through a 2 hour gig..
                            He keeps time and they have another drummer for the more energetic stuff.
                            Still a good show though and thoroughly recommend it if anybodys a Moodies fan.

                              Laines vocal on Go Now was the best thing they done for me.

                              I used to watch Denny Laine and the Diplomats in the local pubs. Bev Bevan was their drummer in those days.........Wilba
