Behind-the-Scenes Cruise Ship Tours Are The New Hot Excursion

Cruise ships today are much more than just hotels on water. They’ve got on-board waterparks, golf courses, gyms, spas, and well ... just about everything you can find on land in addition to beds for thousands.

But just how do they manage running all that stuff while the boat’s at sea? It's something we've always wondered, and fortunately cruise lines are starting to realize that we’re curious.

Last year, Princess Cruises introduced the Ultimate Ship Tour, a behind-the-scenes look at what the crew are doing while you’re spending seven days lounging by the pool and scouting out the free buffet. Now Carnival Cruises has introduced a similar tour. The $95 Behind the Fun tour is a three-and-a-half-hour look at the ship’s operations, including access to the galley, training center, and the crew’s quarters.

Behind the Fun is currently available on Carnival Valor and Carnival Conquest, and will hit the rest of the Carnival fleet by the end of September. We bet they make a pretty penny off of this tour, too.
