Apologies if this question is not in the right place, I just thought that you lot would have a lot of experience!

 

I was supposed to be spending my birthday on a cruise in July this year, however it is looking likely we will be postponing this cruise until next year. Now instead I would like to throw a cruise themed party (on firm ground!) that feels like i’m on a cruise; any advice from people that have previously done this, or any fresh ideas from people? Im looking for little things that you experience on a cruise that make it feel like you’re on a cruise!

 

thanks in advance, and i hope everybody is keeping well.

Hi med_cruising.  Early happy birthday. I am sorry your plans got postponed.  

 

I am am not a good person to answer your question. Most of my cruises have been a getaway from caregiving my late Mother. I typically boarded the ship exhausted, slept the first day and a half, sat and stared at the scenery for hours, and enjoyed someone else cooking and cleaning.  Those cruises were exactly the recharge I needed but don’t translate to a party very well. 

 

I hope someone more vivacious will come by soon and give you some great ideas.  

 

Best wishes.

My sympathies on the loss of your mother.  I'm also more of a rest and recharge cruiser than party cruiser.

Hmm.. a beach theme? Or formal night? Or dress as a waiter and have couple of other members of your family do the same and just be there serving your mother? In the morning fold her towels in a shape and make her bed? Maybe get a Karaoke machine?
