Norwegian Cruise Line organises social media cruise
OSLO, July 29 — For the second time, Norwegian Cruise Line is hosting the annual #SeaTweetup from October 12 to 15. The event will take place on the Norwegian Sky, departing from Miami and sailing to the Bahamas.
The interactive three-night cruise will allow customers to participate in special networking events including group activities, social media marketing panels, discussions and cocktail parties.
Participants will be able to use an onboard internet café and Wi-Fi networks as well as attend in-port events for which invitations will be distributed through the hash tag #SeaTweetup. The boat has a capacity for 2,002 guests and offers 10 dining options, more than 10 bars and lounges, a spa, a fitness center, a casino and a duty-free retail shop.
Themed cruises have been growing in popularity in recent years, aimed at attracting a wider range of passengers. For example, Crystal Cruises is offering 12 different themed cruises in 2012, including NFL legends, floral design, golf, wine and food and ballroom dancing.
Oceania Cruises is offering this year a total of nine themed cruises including wellness, music, and food and wine, organized in partnership with food publication Bon Appétit. Regent Seven Seas Cruises is also developing themed itineraries. This year it offers a theater cruise — either a ten-day circuit sailing from Buenos Aires to Rio de Janeiro or a 32-day trip from Buenos Aires to Miami. The company is also hosting an opera cruise departing from New England later this year.
