Sail back to the 80’s with music legends & Royal Caribbean

If you have the cruising bug and loved the sounds of the 80’s this is the perfect cruise for you.  You are invited to pack your brightest leg warmers and biggest shoulder pads to sail to Spain and Portugal onboard Royal Caribbean’s luxury cruise ship, Navigator Of The Seas.  The week-long inaugural ‘Back to the 80’s’ themed cruise will be the largest retro music cruise at sea with more than 100 performances by some of the 80’s greatest legends.  (Including my personal favourite, Belinda Carlisle!)  **Please note the giveaway for this cruise ended on the 16th February**

The cost of this one week cruise is from £649* per person based on an inside cabin with four people sharing (less than £100 per person per night which is an absolutely brilliant price!), or £999 pp for two people sharing.  These prices include food, all onboard entertainment and gratuities.  Click here for more price details. 

Quick video recap… What’s included in the ‘Back to the 80’s Cruise 2018’?

Sea days and evenings will be spent reliving the 80’s with live performances by Tony Hadley, ABC, Kim Wilde, Belinda Carlisle, Go West and other popular 80’s artists.  Disco queen DJ Sara Cox from Radio Two will take to the decks (literally!) and Mike Read will host his chat show – ‘In Conversation With’.

Of course it wouldn’t be the 80’s without spandex and fluorescent lights.  Whilst cruising you can expect neon/glow parties, 80s-style poolside workouts on deck and opportunities to meet the 80’s stars. You may even find yourself sitting at the dinner table with one of your idols!

When not grooving along to 80’s music you can check out the 19 restaurants onboard, watch an outdoor movie or be wowed by the west end style shows.  Whether you fancy relaxing in a spa, riding waves on a 40-foot-long surf simulator, or climbing to dizzy heights on the rock climbing wall the Navigator of the Seas has it all. (Some of these facilities cost extra check here for more details).  

Navigator of the Seas

Opportunity to explore three exciting ports of call – Bilbao and Vigo in Spain and Lisbon in Portugal.  You will be free to disembark the ship and explore independently or if you wish you can book a shore excursion and explore with a local guide.  The choice is yours!

    I honestly cant decide if I would love this or not I think its because I love 70s music so much more, But it still looks like to much fun a great prize x

  6. 7th February 2018 / 12:08 pm

    This is genius! Being in the 80s 24/7 would be rather trippy, and so much fun, I’ll bet. Sounds a very reasonable price too, particularly since all food etc is included!!

    This would be brilliant to go on with a few friends wouldn’t it? Plus the stop offs sound like beautiful places too. I have been on a couple in the past, and they were far too serious for my liking! 😀

    Oh my goodness this sounds like great fun! I had no idea that cruises had got so much fun. Definitely not the stereotypical one I had pictured. This may make Hubby consider it.

  17. 2nd February 2018 / 8:04 pm
