For cat lovers

Feline like you need a quick getaway? Climb aboard the Carnival Victory on October 23rd. Purrrfect for cat lovers everywhere, this sailing (aptly dubbed the Meow Meow Cruise) allows you to get closer to other ailurophiles and participate in cat-themed activities: the Meow Meow Meet & Greet, the Meow Meow Mixer, and Meow Meow Trivia, to name a few. Sorry, no cats are allowed on the boat.

For knitters

When you’re at your knits end, there’s no better way to unwind than on a craft cruise. (And this 113-day journey aboard Holland America’s ms Amsterdam is basically the mother of them all.) The itinerary touts 25 countries on 5 continents and plenty of onboard fun. Daily sea coaching sessions and a 5-lesson “How to Knit” workshop are hosted by your personal knitting guru, Judy. You’re an advanced knitter, you say? Judy also offers seminars on specialized topics ranging from blocking to the Russian join—all included in your fare.

For stock enthusiasts

Find the stock market enthralling? Apparently, you’re not alone! On this 7-night sailing aboard the Emerald Princess, you’ll be joined by none other than Stefanie Kammerman, the legendary Stock Whisperer. Stef will hold a private two-hour Q&A session on trading, but it should be noted that this is really just “a great chance to get out of the office” while being surrounded by the natural beauty of Alaska.

For zombie fans

If you’re dead tired and in need of a vacation, a Walker Stalker cruise is probably your best bet. Touted as a way for Walking Dead fans to become “part of a greater community of zombie lovers,” this 3-day sailing is ideal for getting to know characters in the flesh. Aboard the Norwegian Pearl, you can participate in events and panels, and meet stars from the show for memories that will last a lifetime (or more if you turn).
