A Golden Girls themed cruise will set sail next year for a five-night journey.

Setting sail on 24 February 2020, destinations include the Mexican island of Cozumel and gay host-spot Key West.

Other than being surrounded by a thousands of fans of the show, there’s an itinerary of activities based around the sitcom. Expect a themed bar crawl, a fancy dress dinner party, ‘Dorothy’s bingo’, and a karaoke party at the Rusty Anchor. You’ll recognize that as Blanche’s favorite place to pick up men.

Prices range from approximately $1000 (884.56EUR) for a standard cabin to around $1200 (1061.47EUR) for a deluxe cabin with a balcony – all based on double occupancy. Each ticket includes an unlimited drinks package.

The event is hosted on cruise ship Celebrity Infinity, which has a 2170 person occupancy.

Thank you for being a friend

The Golden Girls starred Betty White (Rose), Rue McClanahan (Blanche), Estelle Getty (Sophia) and Beatrice Arthur (Dorothy). The sitcom followed the lives of four older women who were friends and lived in Florida.

It enjoyed seven seasons, from 1985 to May 1992.

The show amassed a large LGBTI following, especially from gay men. The raunchy humor, savage wit, and themes of friendship were especially popular – and there are still drag versions of the character today.
