Thus leading me to seriously contemplating spending $1000+ to go on their cruise next June. While my recent fixation for the New Kids doesn't even come close to my love for the Backstreet Boys, I thought I would still have a great time going to their events, deck parties, concerts, and meeting new friends. Plus my whole inspiration for this blog came largely in part from Katie's NKOTB Cruise Blog. I learned so much from her about theme cruising, and in turn got to know the New Kids a lot better in the process. In fact, I would probably be a lot more relaxed on a NK cruise since I wouldn't be constantly worried about running into Howie, Brian, Nick or AJ.
In the end I decided not to book it (at least for now). Though if it was just a smidge cheaper, I'd probably be one of the lucky owners of an interior cabin on deck 1 of the NKOTB cruise. But this got me thinking...what other themed cruises would I consider doing if money wasn't an issue?
I am a big TV watcher. I would probably consider going on a theme cruise if one of of my favorite shows did one. For example I would love to do a cruise for Friends or How I Met Your Mother. Heck, maybe I'd run into AJ on the Friends cruise ;) And I love How I Met Your Mother! They make several references to the Backstreet Boys throughout the series as well which just makes it all the more funny. Here is one my favorite scenes where one of the main characters gets his hair done before his wedding:
"...The Good Backstreet Boys?"
Another theme cruise I want to try that actually kind of exists is a Biggest Loser Cruise. It seems like an oxymoron to have a weight loss themed cruise, but nonetheless, I think it would be a really positive and beneficial experience. Plus I would love to meet Bob, one of the trainers from the show.
So what other theme cruises would you consider doing if money wasn't an issue?
PS- This is very loosely related, but my friend Cory passed along an NKOTB Cruise blog entry about booking the cruise that I found absolutely hilarious and completely relatable. Definitely worth a read if you have some extra time.
