Niche Cruises...yes, it's a thing!

Updated: Feb 24, 2021

Sometime in the last couple decades- cruises got a bad wrap. And I’m going to be real honest with you… it’s just NOT FAIR! To date I have been on over 25 cruises from all different lines and stayed in every type of room possible; from an interior room without so much as a porthole, to an owner’s suite with butler and private hot tub… and loved every minute of it!

A concept I have seen really take off over the last few years is “common interest” cruises. This takes an entire cruise ship and packs it with people with something in common, all looking to have the same type of cruise experience. From star chef enhanced gourmet cruises to pop star concert extravaganzas, these cruises are blowing up in a big way.

Interested? Here’s what I’ve found coming up:

  • November 3-7 2021 Norwegian Jewel is hosting pop singer Ke$ha out of Miami. Think non stop glitter party meets tropical vacation. You MIGHT find me on this one… if my boyfriend allows it.

  • January 20-24 2022 the Royal Caribbean Mariner of the Seas is hosting a Electronic Dance Groove Cruise. DJ Lineup is yet to be announced, but let’s be honest, it’s going to be incredible.

For my LGBTQ travelers, there are SEVERAL companies that offer all-gay charters on ships all over the world. I myself have traveled on Atlantic Cruises a handful of times and enjoyed pretty much the entire experience from the incredible shows to the off the chart theme parties.

While not a charter per say, there is something to be said about a Disney Cruise. I know what you’re thinking, but trust me, these are just as fun for adults… if not more so. On select nights during your trip you can dress, talk and act like a PIRATE followed by a dazzling firework show.

If food is your love language, several cruise companies have exclusive partnerships with shows like Top Chef and America’s Test Kitchen where you can participate while on board with cooking demonstrations and competitions.

Whether you want to party the night away on a common interest cruise, let your inner child sail the Caribbean or indulge your palate in luxury, there’s a cruise for you!
