Theme cruises like these offer unique opportunities to sail with fellow passengers who share your affinity for a certain activity or interest. Sometimes it is the cruise line itself that offers a specific departure date geared towards a particular cruise theme. Other times, it is UncommonCruises.com that organizes and promotes our very own cruise theme departures. Either way, you can join in the fun with other like-minded passengers who share your particular passion or pursuit – whether food and wine or any other interest or theme.
