5 Crazy (Awesome) Theme Cruises You Can Actually Book Now

Party with Gene Simmons and drag queens in the salty air.

By Tamara Palmer


1. Kiss Kruise

If you’re ready to live out your '70s rock and roll fantasies with Gene Simmons and his tongue as you move from Miami to Cozumel to Grand Cayman, jump on a reservation for The Kiss Kruise VI (November 4 through 9), which is close to capacity as of this writing. You’ll see Simmons and Kiss perform alongside emerging artists including his daughter Sophie Simmons.

2. Holy Ship!

The next two sessions of the wild electronic dance music cruise Holy Ship! (January 6 through 10 and January 10 through 14) are already sold out, but the promoter advises getting on the wait list now as cabana spots do tend to open up closer to the dates. Do it now for a chance to breeze from Port Canaveral, Florida to Great Stirrup Cay and Nassau in the Bahamas to an awesome soundtrack provided by popular DJs like Fatboy Slim, A-Trak, and Claude VonStroke with colorful people from around the world.

3. Queens Overboard

The second annual Queens Overboard (February 19 through 26) is hosted by Peaches Christ and Heklina, San Francisco’s most popular and fabulous drag queens. You’ll meet them in Fort Lauderdale and from there will float to the Caribbean stops of CocoCay, Cozumel, Grand Cayman, and Falmouth, Jamaica, getting spa treatments, enjoying movie nights, and playing Drag Bingo along the way. Planning ahead has its rewards, honey: If you reserve by the end of the month you’ll get $300 in onboard credit and free unlimited drink packages.

4. Soul Train Cruise

The Soul Train Cruise (March 4 through 11) features 35 live musical performances from funk, R&B, and disco icons like Kool & The Gang, Chic featuring Nile Rodgers, Commodores, Midnight Star, and Thelma Houston. The cruise liner, which boards in Fort Lauderdale and stops in Cozumel, Belize City and Freeport, Grand Bahama Island, is currently 80 percent sold out, so it’s time to polish off those Soul Train line dance moves and book now if you’re interested.

5. Witching You Were Here

Take your interest in the paranormal to the open seas on Witching You Were Here (May 25 through June 2). You’ll start in Salem, Massachusetts, taking in paranormal lectures on board, and voyage to Bermuda, where you’ll embark on a walking ghost tour and a viewing of the Traveling Museum of the Paranormal and Occult. You’ll also have a psychic reading — and life will never be the same again.
