You’d be forgiven for thinking “Hmm, Events at Sea, what does that cover?” I mean, you can hold an event around almost any theme.
As such, let’s go on a whistle-stop tour and get an overview of all of the headliners in the Events at Sea world. We’re not lying when we say, whatever you’re into, there’s an event for you.
With floating festivals and soirees, you can quite literally explore the world sailing on the notes of a tune. From the metal-lovers’ Monsters of Rock cruise across Central America to the London Festival Opera travelling the shores of Russia, we cover every musical genre and every corner of the globe. In the words of Billy Joel, “No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music.”
Health and Well-being
Most of us want to come home from our holidays feeling well-rested, rejuvenated and freshly ready to take the reins of everyday life. The growing trend of personal development and wellness has reached the world of cruise too.
For a restful and unique cruise, step aboard Starclippers’ tall ships to try daily yoga and meditation classes in an intimate setting that feels more like a private yacht.
Food and Wine
Tour the world’s supreme wine-making regions, learn from Michelin star chefs or simply sit back and tantalise your tastebuds. If next year includes a special birthday or milestone anniversary, what says love and romance better than an elegant meal accompanied by fine wine?
Join Marco Pierre White, Olly Smith and Eric Lanyard aboard P&O’s Food Heroes cruise for interactive cookery shows, masterclasses and private hosted dinners.
It might come as a surprise to know that one of the interesting ways of growing your business is at sea. Not only does it facilitate particularly fruitful working relationships, it is cost effective too.
The Nomad’s Cruise sailing from Portugal to Brazil in November is inspiring, connecting, enriching and incredibly productive.
History and Culture
Head off to explore the famous Rio de Janeiro carnival, cruise renaissance Italy, get lost in the pages of a floating literature festival, dust off your binoculars for a wildlife-spotting cruise in Africa or take a journey through the French Impressionists.
In association with the Cheltenham Literature Festival, The Times and The Sunday Times, step aboard the QE2 for a 7 day transatlantic Literature Festival at Sea in December 2020.
Brush up on technique, enjoy meet-and-greets with sporting legends, watch classic games and sports movies, and hear behind-the-scenes accounts from the superstars who were there. These sailings are often scheduled around major sporting events. It might be a lively showing onboard or a trip to enjoy the best seats in the house at the likes of the Monaco Grand Prix or a game of world-class cricket in the West Indies.
How about 6 rounds of golf, tickets to the 149th Open at Royal St. George’s, sailing the British Isles from Dublin to Southampton and 2 weeks of luxury? Azamara, July 2020
