For Art Appreciators
Attend onboard lectures and guided gallery tours as you immerse yourself in art from around the world. Art cruises are offered on many cruise destinations and across multiple arts disciplines. Meet indigenous artists in remote communities in Arnhem Land or voyage through the age-old imagery and culture of the Mediterranean. Expert guidance and onboard programs provide a deeper understanding and appreciation of the artists and their work. And, visiting the very places that inspired and nurtured the great masters is inspiration in itself.
For Artists and Learning Artists
If you know your watercolour from your gouache and you'd like some tuition from renowned artists, an art cruise is the perfect way to learn and improve your skills. Art cruise destinations are an integral part of the experience, as shore excursions include art classes and landscape painting or drawing sessions in beautiful settings picked out by the artists. Culture and sightseeing are not forgotten as onboard lectures and enlightening shore excursions provide the context for the pieces you produce throughout the trip. The fun of sharing art cruises with like-minded people and visiting places of stunning natural wonder make for a memorable cruise holiday. Art cruises for artists are either offered as dedicated art cruises or special interest cruises.
Art and Craft Cruises
Art and craft cruises provide the opportunity for passengers to acquire a number of new skills, from painting techniques and pottery to knitting, scrapbooking, crafts for kids and more. Art and craft cruises have increased in popularity in recent years, as more and more people choose to cruise. Craft cruises not only teach new skills in a fun way, but you also have souvenirs that you made yourself and the ability to make more when you get home. Craft cruises are generally offered as special interest cruises, with onboard areas (including accommodation) and activities exclusively set aside for the craft cruisers.
