Picture, this, Miami 2020, you and your best friend are boarding a Golden Girls-themed cruise ship, ready for one of the best weeks of your life. This actually could be you! Next year, a cruise based on the popular ’80s TV show will set sail from Miami, Florida and you can book your trip right now.

Flip Phone Events is hosting Golden Girls At Sea: A Golden Girls Fan Cruise, a 5-night Western Caribbean cruise that leaves on February 24, 2020. The ship will travel to Key West and Cozumel, all before heading back to the home of the Golden Girls, Miami. You’re going to want to pack up your purse and grab a slice of cheesecake before boarding this ship! Though, we hope they’ll also supply the cheesecake while onboard.

Included in the cost of the trip is a huge range of suites and balcony rooms to choose from. There will be a nightly changing menu, as well as cafes, buffets, and specialty dining. The ship will have spas, pools, jacuzzis, solarium, and a gym with high-tech equipment. As far as entertainment goes, there will be Broadway-style theater, circus shows, comedians, magicians, dancers, and live music. The real selling point of the cruise is all of the activities that center around our favorite girls, Dorothy, Sophia, Blanche, and Rose!

The current list of Golden Girls-themed activities are:

  • Caftan Sail Away Party with Cheesecake
  • The Rusty Anchor Karaoke Party
  • Golden Girls Trivia
  • Shady Pines Craft Corner
  • Key West Golden Girls Bar Crawl
  • Golden Girls Costume Contest and Fancy Dinner
  • One Night in St. Olaf Dance Party (Including a game of Ugel and Flugel)
  • Dorothy’s Bingo
  • Plus much, much more!

Prices start out at $986.89 per person for an ocean view cabin and go up to $1,181.69 for an Aqua Class deluxe oceanview balcony room. These prices include all port charges and all taxes, but do not include travel protection and gratuities. Prices are based on double occupancy per cabin and each cabin requires a $250 non-refundable deposit. A $500 payment will be due on June 15, 2019, towards your cruise and then another $500.00 payment due by September 1, 2019.
