Themed cruises are hugely popular, and different styles of music are often featured onboard. To be a part of one of these cruises can be a fabulous experience, as you can let loose and enjoy the music you like with other holidaymakers of the same mind. You will no doubt create all kinds of great memories, and make life-long friends.

Different cruise lines will offer various itineraries and themes, so be sure to ask what's available at the time of booking if you'd like to join a specific cruise.  

Types of Music Themed Cruises

Music Eras

Cruisers of different generations will of course get excited about the music of their youth, whether this is 60s, 70s, 80s, or even 90s music. Don your bell-bottoms, jumpsuits, leather jackets, or shoulder-padded blazers and really embrace the styles and spirit of these bygone years. Enjoy the sounds of the sixties with Motown nights, groove to 70s music with an Abba tribute act, or dance the night away on Royal Caribbean’s thrilling Back to the 80s cruise. This particular cruise features some classic acts from the era, including former member of Spandau Ballet - Tony Hadley, ABC, Kim Wilde, Belinda Carlisle, and Paul Young to name a few.

 

 

Specific Music Genres

Rather than a particular period of music, you might favour a certain genre. Take in beautiful jazz music on a blues-themed cruise, heel-toe and dosey-doe with fellow country music lovers, or be mesmerised by the incredible sounds of some world-renowned classical music artists, onboard Celebrity Cruises’ stunning Bravo cruise. This outstanding opportunity is perfect for lovers of classical music; over 20 acts will perform, including the eminent Alfie Bow and Katherine Jenkins, with the National Symphony Orchestra accompanying.

 

 

What to Pack for a Music Cruise

Whether it’s your dancing shoes, sequined trousers or comfortably chic attire, be sure to think about your evenings onboard when packing for your cruise. Some music themed cruises even encourage genre themed fancy dress to get the party started onboard. Check with your cruise line for more information and guidance about what to pack.
