What theme cruise would get you to book?
 
Having just researched theme cruises for a recent podcast, I was blown away by the amount of themes.
So, what theme would get you to book? For me, it would be a couple:
1. A Disney fan gathering
2. Broadway
3. Italian cooking with Mario Batali and Anne Burrell

I've seen a lot about jazz cruises on these boards and, of course, the cruisemates cruises. What else?

A themed cruise would not persuade me regarding booking a cruise.
In fact, depending on the theme, it may cause me to not book that specific cruise at all.

I would really like to see a "DIY" themed cruise, maybe sponsored by Lowes or Home Depot. There could be "how-to" lectures & demonstrations on simple home projects and/or repairs for the do-it-yourself people (like me). Maybe there could even be drawings for prizes, like certificates or coupons for free tools or other merchandise. Bob Vila could be a guest speaker. Maybe have Tim Allen (from "Home Improvement") for entertainment. Hey, if there can be scrap-booking themed cruises and the like for the ladies, how about something for the guys? It wouldn't even have to be a seven day cruise. A four day Bahamas cruise would be okay.

Since I design jewelry, a beading cruise...would love to learn some bead weaving techiniques. I would also love to see travel celebrities.

Lot of themes cruises, I would stay away from like the plague...remember that American Girl Cruise, that effected our Eclipse cruise...ya, that's one group that would keep me away...

Woody, the promoter of the Beatles Tribute Cruise was actually our guest this week on the podcast. :) It sounds like a great cruise.

So would I . In the lare 80's ,a co-workers son portrayed Paul McCartney in the broadway show Beatlemania .

We did a Beatles cruise once (by accident, we didn't know when we booked). They had a great tribute band and a lecturer who did a nationally syndicated radio beatles show. It was fantastic; especially as there were only 144 pax onboard and the girls (ladies, women) all sat in front row and screamed.

What would interest me are some specialised food cruises; e.g., I would love to go on a cruise that was devoted to foie gras. I have been on a chocolate cruise before (with Godiva chocolatier) but I would prefer foie gras. Also, a whisky tasting cruise would be great with the ability to work through 30 or 40 different scotches over a week.

I don't think any theme cruise would interest me much, but a Cruisemates cruise is always fun and enjoyable..

If I ever do a CM cruise I will need a disguise ,perhaps a beard and mustache .

I already have a beard and a mustache; not much of a disguise. ;)

Personally...

1.) A Classic Rock Cruise (70's and SOME 80's bands and / or music)
2.) A NASCAR cruise (With some NASCAR Drivers)
3.) A Thirsty Frog Red Cruise LOL! (Wait a minute I was on that cruise 2 weeks ago :p)
