World's Wackiest Theme Cruises
Hogs on the High Seas Western Caribbean
Description: While you can’t bring your own bike onboard this rally at sea, you can check out the latest at the high seas trade show where vendors show their wares and offer giveaways—one lucky cruiser even wins a bike. Cruisers can rent bikes at the ports (but they might miss rowdy parties at places like Sammy Hagar’s Cabo Wabo in Cabo San Lucas).
Why We Love It: With 1,000 participants, HOHS takes over a dining room and adjusts the dress code to biker casual (leather is the suggested dress for the two formal nights). Special biker activities include the Belly Wacker flop and Sexy Senorita contests, and a Topless Hombre competition judged by blindfolded ladies using their hands. Tequila flows.
Details: March 29–April 5, 2009, round-trip from Los Angeles, visiting Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan, and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, on Royal Caribbean’s Mariner of the Seas. Fare for two: $2,340 to $6,922. (Two sailings a year.)
