This world is full of crazy people. People who leave their cushy jobs to become mountaineers. People who invent special scissors to cut pizza. People who understand that ‘crazy’ is a way of life. 

Whoever came up with the idea of a cruise must have been a little mad. The concept of a miniature pseudo town floating from place to place is anyway fantastical, but some crazy people go overboard with ideas! . TS Intern Avyashree Singh tips you off on five theme-based crazy-cruises that’ll set your mind adrift:

Takes you to  the end of the World, literally. Take a trip through Antarctica and watch the penguins waddle and preen in their natural habitat. Or, just sit back and observe the ginormous glaciers. Feel the exhilaration of experiencing nature in its harsh, raw form.
