After editing this supplement there’s no doubt in my mind that stepping inside a cruise ship offers a similar element of surprise.
Hop onboard to learn circus skills? No problem. Listen to a live TED talk at sea? Simple. Have a cocktail made for you by a robot? Of course! Gone are the days of deck games and mediocre entertainment – we’ve entered a new phase, and “enrichment” is the buzzword. Cruise lines are continuously coming up with new ways to enhance their holiday experiences, so we thought it time to bring these to your attention.
In this guide you’ll find the latest trends and developments, so you can be up-to-date on the craziest futuristic technology and most sought-after celebrity performances in the cruise industry. If you’re looking for a way to entice new cruise customers, try suggesting one of these 20 things you didn’t know you could do on a cruise ship. I would certainly be making a beeline for the “make your own wine” masterclass…
We’ve also asked cruise lines to showcase their best enrichment activities, and entertainment experts to share the best bits of the programmes. So whether your clients like chocolate chips, Smarties, or layers of jam inside their cakes, you can guarantee you’ll find the perfect recipe for their cruise holiday.
