Backstreet Boys Cruise with Live Concerts, Parties, and Games
Since the appearance of their debut album in 1996, the Backstreet Boys have become one of the best-selling boy bands of all time, racking up album sales of more than 100 million. Aboard this three-night Carnival Imagination cruise from Miami to the Bahamas (sponsored by Rose Tours), fans get a chance to hang out with Nick, Howie, AJ, and Brian at special events and to revel in their infectious pop hooks during poolside performances. The cruise departs Miami on December 2 and returns on December 5.
Interactive events include game shows during which band members summon fans to the stage to sing impromptu solos and answer multiple-choice questions about the Battle of Hastings. Bartenders mix colorful cocktails and DJs spin sprightly dance tracks during evening deck parties with themes such as Prom Night and Pajama Jams. The next day, guests flock to one of three resort-style pools or retreat to a spa for seaweed massages and rejuvenating facials (at an additional cost) to ready visages for group photos with the Backstreet Boys. At the end of the day, passengers return to their ocean view staterooms, which are equipped with twin beds sporting luxury linens and nautical-striped duvets. Double-paneled windows reveal resplendent views of the glittering sea.
Nassau: Underwater Adventures and Rich Cultural History
As the ship pulls into Nassau, white-sand beaches, coconut palm trees, and colorful island buildings come into view. Former Backstreet Boy Kevin Richardson joins his former bandmates to host a private party for passengers on beautiful Cable Beach. During the one-night stopover in Nassau, travelers can peruse the historical town's duty-free shops and examine artifacts of the island's rich pirate culture at the Bahamas Historical Society. Scuba-diving tours and snorkeling expeditions explore nearby coral reefs and shipwrecks, and walking tours showcase majestic Victorian homes.
