In the old days, going on a cruise with a celebrity meant sailing with a former cast member from The Love Boat or an extra from Star Trek. But these days some cruises can get you face time with some pretty big names in American culture.
Ever though you’d be on the Lido deck with Karl Rove? Well Holland America is setting sail for the Mediterranean this summer with a cruise that’s all about conservative politics.
How about sailing around the Baltics with John Lithgow? He’ll be onboard a Silverseas cruise from Stockholm to Copenhagen.
The same cruise line recently had Ted Koppel on board a cruise through Asia. Guests can not only attend presentations and seminars, but also have the opportunity to interact with the celebrities throughout the cruise because well, let’s face it, they’re on vacation too.
Want to get an inside scoop on American politics?
How about Howard Fineman, the chief political correspondent for Newsweek?
He’ll be on Crystal.
And geeks – have no fear.
Star Trek cruises are coming up on both Royal Caribbean and Carnival.
And if you’re lucky, you’ll be karaoke-ing next to a Vulcan before you know it .
