As the world slowly returns to normal, people have been looking towards the rest of 2022 and 2023 to make plans, including big vacations like cruises. What’s better than a normal cruise? A themed cruise based on one of the most beloved TV shows of all time. That’s right: the Golden Girls Cruise 2023 has just been announced, and we’re ecstatic! Golden Fans At Sea, a theme cruise based on the sitcom, is returning with its fourth voyage for up to 1,000 Golden Girls fans.
The Golden Girls Cruise 2023 is leaving from Miami, Florida, on April 8, 2023, on the recently refurbished Celebrity Summit. The five-night, immersive cruise includes Golden Girls themed trivia, costume contests, bar crawls, beach excursions and more, and will visit Key West, Florida and Cozumel, Mexico.
“This year we are thrilled to announce that all cruise bookings include the ‘Shady Pines Beach Excursion’ in Cozumel,” Golden Fans At Sea producer Chad Kampe tells Hornet. “We are breaking away from the ship for a day of fun in the sun. Guests will also embark on a Golden Girls themed bar crawl in Key West, Florida and have precious one on one time with Golden Girls writers, producers, and legends.
The Golden Girls Cruise 2023 also will have special guests, who will be announced soon. Past guests on Golden Fans at Sea include Melinda McLanahan (sister of Rue McLanahan, who played Blanche), Stan Zimmerman (writer of Golden Girls), Marsha Posner Williams (producer of Golden Girls), RuPaul’s Drag Race’s Tempest DuJour, Jim Colucci (author of Golden Girls Forever: An Unauthorized Look Behind the Lanai), and the Golden Gays NYC (a Golden Girls parody drag group, pictured below).
Over 1,500 Golden Girls fans joined the inaugural Golden Fans at Sea voyage in 2020. It was the first Golden Girls fan celebration in the world, and it’s such a fun way to honor a classic show. Golden Fans at Sea is definitely an outing that no Golden Girls fan is gonna want to miss. Head here for more information about the Golden Girls Cruise 2023, and to book your best vacation yet.
