Before the 2016 Backstreet Boys Euro Cruise, we presented new potential cruise themes that we’d love to see in the future. Unfortunately, none of our suggestions were actual chosen themes, but we can always dream!
With the cruise next year already being sold out (WHAT?!) and being the 25th anniversary, there’s no option but for it to be the best yet. We’ve come up with 10 more ideas for themes in hopes that if the Boys are lacking ideas, they’ll stumble upon this little post. Cross your fingers!
1. 90s Night
This really doesn’t need an explanation as 95% of us were there for the 90s. We know the style, we know the music, we know the 90s was the best decade ever and we want the excuse to relive it any chance we get. Grab your scrunchies. your daisy dresses, your Friends dvds and let’s do this!
2. Make Believe Night
A play on the BSB song of the same name, here’s your chance to play make believe like you did as a child. Princes and princesses, aliens and unicorns – let your imagination run!
We really just wanted an excuse to infuse some aliens into the cruise, honestly.
3. FantaSea Night
Get your minds out of the gutter unless you find pirates sexy – we won’t judge! We propose that FantaSea Night consist of all things sea-related – pirates, wenches, and mermaids, oh my. We’re dying to see the BSB Pirates Of The Carribean style and a mermaids-allowed theme is the perfect excuse to buy the rainbow highlighter we’ve been eyeing!
4. Heroes and Villains
Not all heroes wear capes – but they probably will on the cruise! For those who aren’t into the superhero lifestyle, pick the villain of your choice and play it up. It’ll be even more fun if one of the Boys just happens to be your arch nemesis for the night – we smell an awesome photo op!
This is also a good one for planning with a group of your friends and being creative by making your own superhero!
5. Royal Ball
If a formal night is what you’re looking for, this theme is for you! “We could be kings and queens” ring a bell? Grab your crowns, tiaras, and glass slippers (except don’t) and get on board for this theme. What’s better than Prince Charming? Five of them in the form of Nick, Brian, AJ, Kevin and Howie. No one can resist a suave looking Backstreet Boy (or finding another use for that formal dress you purchased years ago).
Think you can’t get drunk in a ball gown? Whatever. Cinderella was obvious drunk to leave that shoe behind.
6. Hoedown Showdown
C’mon y’all! Everyone loves a good Southern night (or at least love Kevin and Brian) and it’s a pretty simple theme. Grab your jeans, your plaid, your boots, cowboy hats and git it!
Are you REALLY going to turn down a cowboy-themed-Backstreet Boy? Really?
Disclaimer: This is NOT because I’m from Nashville (or I’d call it honky tonk night).
7. Backstreet Festival
Couldn’t make it to a summer music festival and wear all those trendy festival clothes? Into the Woodstock look? Literally just want to wear a bikini top (uhh..with bottoms) and be in theme? This one is for you. Imagine a Coachella vibe where it’s strictly Backstreet. We haven’t decided how the Boys would dress for this one, but we promise it’ll be better than Fyre Fest! (Look it up.)
8. Fiesta En Fuego
It’s not lost on anyone that we will be on the boat on May 5th AKA Cinco De Mayo. To avoid the risk of potentially being offensive yada, yada, yada…we present Fiesta En Fuego! Literally, a party on fire. We’re thinking fiery colors (red, orange, etc.), a little “Hot, Hot, Hot”, and a whole lot of margaritas. Also, can someone come around passing out tacos or…?
9. Gatsby Night
A little party never killed nobody, says a song from the Great Gatsby remake. Anyone that has read or watched Gatsby knows that Jay Gatsby was known for his lavish parties and we can perfectly envision such a party on the cruise. Grab your 1920s garb (flapper dresses, beads, feathers, etc.) and look for the green light across the water!
Falling down the rabbit hole will never be as fun as it will be when your friends AND the Backstreet Boys are involved. We love the idea of replicating a wacky Wonderland on the cruise and painting the roses red! There’s plenty of wild characters and costuming to choose from.
Oh, and we’d like to petition to see Kevin as the Queen of Hearts and Nick as Alice, of course.
Or maybe Kevin should be the caterpillar? OK. We really need this theme.
Which theme suggestion is your favorite? Have one of your own? We want to hear it all!
