101 Reasons to go on a Backstreet Boy Cruise

It never occurred to me to do a post on this because all I needed to hear was 3 words- Backstreet Boys Cruise. I whipped my credit card out so fast before I even finished reading the sentence. But I guess some folks out there need a little bit more convincing than I did because there are still cabins available. So for those fans who need a few more reasons, here we go!

101 Reasons to go on a Backstreet Boy Cruise

  1. Chance to visit Nassau and the beautiful Atlantis resort. Even if you’ve already been, its worth another trip back.
  2. It’s all your favorite BSB events combined into 1 uber Backstreet extravaganza. Q&A + Meet & Greet + Photo Session + Concert + Game shows + Deck Parties + so much more!
  3. You’ll be in the middle of the ocean “stuck” with the Backstreet Boys. I cant think of any one I’d rather be “stuck” with.
  4. It’s so peaceful in the middle of the ocean. No pollution, stress, traffic, alarm clocks, telephones. Just the roar of the ocean… and the roar of BSB fans of course.
  5. Opportunity to be pampered at the spa.
  6. You get the chance to experience new exotic places and excursions in the Caribbean.
  7. You can be one of the elite few who can say they’ve been on a cruise with the Backstreet Boys.
  8. No matter how many times you’ve seen them in concert or at other events, NOTHING compares to seeing them on a cruise.
  9. That exhilarating feeling of first stepping onto the ship.
  10. It sure as heck beats going to work/school instead.
  11. The quickest and best way to make new friends.
  12. You can bring your bf/husband and not feel guilty because there will be plenty for him to do outside of the Backstreet Boys events.
  13. Great way to celebrate a special event, whether it’s a birthday, graduation, reunion, anniversary, etc
  14. Cruising is quite safe compared to other vacations and we’ll be extra safe because we know there won’t be a shortage of security guards around on the BSB cruise ;)
  15. It’s a fabulous value for the money. You get all the wonderful things a cruise has to offer and tons of amazing Backstreet events, that would normally cost a fortune if you had to pay for everything individually.
  16. First access to exclusive BSB cruise merchandise.
  17. You know ahead of time exactly how much you will be spending. Since you pay up front for the cruise, there aren’t too many additional unforeseen costs, unless you go overboard on the mojitos.
  18. Don’t have to worry about drinking too much at the events because you can walk back to your room afterward.
  19. Because you deserve it! You work hard all year, time to take a vacation and relax with BSB.
  20. You get to spend 72 straight hours with the Backstreet Boys.
  21. Bring out that inner arts and crafts side of you with the door decoration contest (which hopefully will be announced soon)
  22. No one will judge you for being a “super fan” because we all feel the way.
  23. Ain’t no party like a Backstreet party.
  24. Get a vacation away from your friends and family back home. No matter how much you love them, its always nice to get away.
  25. Don’t have to worry about planning anything because it’s all done for you.
  26. Who needs sleep anyway?
  27. Gives you something to look forward to every morning when you wake up.
  28. Think of all the points you’ll accumulate on your credit card by paying for the cruise.
  29. Towel animals.
  30. Chance to meet and possibly hang out with the Backstreet Boys’ families.
  31. Meet fans from all over the world. Plus then you’ll have friends in different cities that you can stay with next time BSB goes on tour.
  32. No chores for 3 days. Don’t even have to make your bed.
  33. Escape the cold December weather (depending where you’re coming from).
  34. There is the possibility that the Backstreet Boys will come knocking on your cabin door in the middle of the night.
  35. Hear new BSB songs that haven’t been released to the public yet.
  36. Help all your relatives out because they won’t have to worry about getting you a holiday present…for the next 5 years. They can just contribute to the BSB cruise fund instead.
  37. Excuse to shop for new clothes.
  38. For repeat cruisers, you get the opportunity to see your friends from last year.
  39. Opportunity to wear your Wylee gear with pride.
  40. People won’t judge you for your I Want it That Way ring tone. They will actually start singing along.
