Q. What themed cruises do you offer?

We offer a variety of themed cruises to inspire and entertain. You can join the stars of Strictly Come Dancing, tantalise your taste buds with one of our Food Heroes or enjoy some of the world’s most talented musicians, all on-board our ships. 


Food Heroes cruises

We’re delighted to be working with some of the brightest lights of the British culinary scene to further enhance our dining experience. We call these talented individuals our Food Heroes and each brings their own brand of valuable expertise to the mix.


Our Food Heroes will be sailing with you on specially selected cruises (see below for 2018/19 dates). Packed with cooking demonstrations, masterclasses, hosted dinners, book signings and Q&A sessions, these holidays are all about food. And as if that’s not enough to tempt you, our Food Heroes will also be hosting food and wine related shore excursions in selected ports of call. Bon appétit!

Our 2020 Food Hero Cruises will be listed here once these have been confirmed.


Strictly Come Dancing themed cruises

Strictly Come Dancing is on-board for dazzling performances from your favourite professional dancers and the outspoken judges everyone loves to hate.


Sit back and enjoy the sizzling shows, or get in on the action and try the Tango, Quickstep or Salsa for yourself. Four of the show’s professional dancers will perform on each cruise and you’ll have an opportunity to meet them and see some of their amazing costumes. Then there will be Q&A sessions where you can get the inside scoop on the glittering world of Strictly.

The 2020 Strictly Come Dancing themed cruises will be N006, B014, N016 and A014

For Iona the Strictly Come Dancing themed cruises will be G009, G010, G016 and G017

Mainly of a classical nature, our guest artists include some of the world’s most talented musicians and singers performing a range of recitals, opera and operetta. There will also be fun music quizzes, interviews and much more, hosted by well-known personalities from TV, radio and stage. You can even join the guest choruses, led by some of today’s leading choral directors. There are currently no Music Festival at Sea itineraries scheduled at this time.
