And if you threw a party and invited everyone you knew...It might just be on board the Celebrity Infinity.

That’s right. A Western Caribbean cruise celebrating the legendary sitcom Golden Girls is confirmed for next winter.

The Golden Girls At Sea experience departs from Miami, Florida – where main characters Rose, Blanche, Dorothy and Sophia lived -- on February 24, 2020, with stopovers at Key West and Cozumel, Mexico.

Produced by Flip Phone Events, the themed cruise incorporates elements synonymous with the much-loved television show starring Bea Arthur, Betty White, Rue McClanahan and Estelle Getty that ran from 1985 to 1992.

Included in the itinerary is a Key West Golden Girls bar crawl, a fancy dress party and dinner, Dorothy’s bingo night and a karaoke party at Rusty Anchor (Blanche's go-to spot for meeting gentlemen).

The gathering also includes a Golden Girls costume contest and a One Night in St. Olaf Dance Party (Including a game of Ugel and Flugel).

Golden Girls at Sea is one of many TV and film-themed cruises to hit the high seas in recent years.

Zombie apocalypse survivors are celebrating fandom on board the Norwegian Pearl this month as part of a cruise devoted to all things related to AMC’s The Walking Dead.

Star Trek fans can also cruise the Caribbean, and boldly go where no one has gone before, as part of an immersive fan experience on board Royal Caribbean’s Explorer of the Seas coming this March 2020.
