(12:15 p.m. EST) -- The ultimate girlfriends' getaway will kick off in February 2020, when "The Golden Girls" cruise departs from Miami (of course) for the Caribbean -- complete with a cheesecake sailaway party.
For five nights, fans of the timeless TV sitcom can channel their inner Rose, Blanche, Dorothy and Sophia through an array of themed activities, such as a One Night in St. Olaf dance party, Dorothy's Bingo, The Rusty Anchor karaoke party, trivia and a costume contest. The cruise onboard Celebrity Infinity will visit Cozumel and Key West, where fans also can partake in a "Golden Girls" bar crawl.
Although Betty White won't be onboard (as far as we know), fans will be joined by acclaimed entertainment journalist and author of "Golden Girls Forever," Jim Colucci. Colucci will host his own event onboard; other activities include a costume dinner, "Golden Girls"-themed production shows and drag shows. Further event details have yet to be revealed.
Fares for "Golden Girls at Sea: A Golden Girls Fan Cruise," as it's dubbed, start at $986.69 per person (including taxes and port fees) for an ocean-view cabin, based on double occupancy. A nonrefundable deposit of $250 is required to book a cabin.
