Calling All KISS Fans and Cat Fanciers: Finds a Cruise for Every Interest

Take Your Passion to the High Seas With These 8 Top Themed Cruises

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Apr 19, 2016) - Tired of plain vanilla cruises, where shipboard activities begin at bingo and end at karaoke? Well you're in luck: cruise companies now offer dozens of specialty cruises catering to virtually every hobby and special interest. There's a voyage for everyone, from golf fanatics and feline fanciers to Sunday painters and poker players. The experts at, the online leader in finding and publishing travel deals, have come up with Passion Afloat: 8 Cruises Where You Can Explore Your Hobbies at Sea. Grab your like-minded friends or make some on board: either way it will be a trip filled with your favorite things.

Here are four of our cruise picks for connecting with kindred spirits:

  • For the golfer: Canadian Maritimes Golf Cruise - There are golf cruises that take you all over the world, but Canadian Maritimes Golf Cruise, which focuses on the rugged yet beautiful Maritime regions of Canada, is a particularly unique option. The area also happens to be home to many renowned, but remote, golf courses. From Sept. 19 to 30, crisscross the Maritime provinces and visit Newfoundland and Labrador, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, cruising by golf courses like Highland Links, Crowbush Cove and Cabot Links & Cabot Cliffs.

  • For the "Walking Dead" fan: Z-Cruise or Walker Stalker Cruise - It's never too early to start prepping for a zombie apocalypse. Why not do it aboard a cruise ship where you can also enjoy a smooth ride from Port Canaveral, Florida, to CocoCay, Bahamas? This zombie-themed cruise sails Oct. 21 to 23 and features stars of the Syfy television series "Z Nation." Get your fill with Q&A sessions with the stars, movie screenings, self-defense classes (to help ward off a zombie attack) and other activities aimed at keeping the undead at bay. If you can wait until the New Year to get your zombie fix, the Walker Stalker Cruise runs Feb. 3 to 6, 2017, and sails from Miami on Norwegian Pearl. Details so far are minimal, but expect actors from "The Walking Dead" and makeup experts who can create those nightmare-inducing zombies.

  • For the crazy cat parent: Meow Meow Cruise - You'll need to act fast if you want to nab a spot on this four-night cruise as it departs from Tampa, Florida, April 21. But, if you're OK with last-minute cruising and love cats, it might be worth your while to book right meow. There won't be any actual pets onboard, but there will be a plethora of cat-themed activities and crafts available as well as the chance to bond with fellow feline-lovers.

  • For members of the KISS Army: KISS Kruise VI - Whether you love KISS or just feel like listening to some good old fashioned head-banging rock and roll music while you cruise from Miami to Cozumel and Grand Cayman, the KISS Kruise could be the one for you. Sailing Nov. 4 to 9, the cruise features KISS as well as soon-to-be-announced special guests of the group. KISS will be performing songs from their 1982 Creatures Tour, and other acts will be announced closer to the cruising date.
