Following on from the trend of themed cruises enrichment cruises are becoming every bit as popular. The difference with enrichment cruises are that they focus on educational topics. 'Floating universities' as they have be coined offer hugely diverse subject matter to travellers. Programmes range from personal finance and history to learning piano and ecological studies.
The programmes are available to give you a deeper understanding about a chosen subject. Well established institutions are the backbone for these courses with many of the liners offering enrichment courses from the Creative Learning Institute, Yamaha and the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts, to name but a few.
Many of the cruise lines offer free enrichment programmes on every cruise giving anyone who is interested the opportunity to participate. As with themed cruises, enrichment cruises are attended by guest, professional and celebrity speakers to offer first hand expert guidance and opinion. Overall enrichment cruises offer an amazing opportunity to gain knowledge or even a new skill in true comfort, all wrapped up in tremendous scenery.
