Swifties are taking their love for Taylor Swift to the high seas in an exciting new trend of themed cruises. Joining Royal Caribbean’s Allure of the Seas-themed sailing, two more Swift fan cruises have now been announced aboard the Navigator of the Seas.
From Miami to Los Angeles, these cruises promise to be a haven for fans, offering unique activities and celebrations of their favorite artist.
Taylor Swift fan cruise on Allure of the Seas
The 4-night cruise is organized by Taylor Swift fans and travel agents Shelby Reyes, Nicole Rivera, and Jessica Malerman. Its stops include Royal’s private island Perfect Day at Coco Cay and Nassau in the Bahamas.
Though events and activities are stll being fine-tuned, the website for the voyage called In My Cruise Era so far lists a welcome cocktail party, the swapping of friendship bracelets, a themed dance party, themed karaoke, a Taylor Trivia event, and (of course) nightly costume parties based on Taylor’s outfits.
The copy on the website specifically says, “Join us as we celebrate all things Taylor, make new friends, dress up in our favorite eras, trade friendship bracelets, and enjoy everything this amazing ship has to offer!”
Second cruise added on Navigator
Adding to the Swiftie excitement, Royal Caribbean’s Navigator of the Seas will host two additional Taylor Swift-themed cruises in 2024. Setting sail from Los Angeles, these four-night journeys to Catalina Island and Ensenada, Mexico, are planned for April 29 and July 22, 2024.
Organized by Fora Travel, the cruise, known as the Bestie Cruise, promises an array of fan-focused activities like dance parties and friendship bracelet making, all in tribute to Taylor Swift’s music.
While Taylor Swift doesn’t officially endorse these cruises, they will surely be a hit with fans eager to celebrate her legacy at sea.
More details can be found on the Bestie Cruise website, inviting fans to fill the ‘Blank Spaces’ with their own Swiftie stories.
Taylor will not be making an appearance
The organizers stress that the cruise is not an official Taylor Swift event. It is neither endorsed nor affiliated with the singer. Hence, the sailing will not feature performances or appearances by Taylor. She will also not be on the ship. Instead, it’s a gathering that allows Swifties to celebrate and share their fandom.
How much will the Swiftie-themed cruise cost?
A cabin for the In My Cruise Era starts at $1,573 based on 2 people sharing a stateroom and $1,967 for a balcony. Allure of the Seas can accommodate almost 5,500 guests. Upon booking with Marvelous Mouse, the agency will reserve a room for you so you get access to their special events which are included in the fare.
Interestingly, other Swifties are planning similar affairs. This TikTok user announced another cruise in January 2024 for a 5-day cruise on Norwegian Cruise Line’s Norwegian Gem.
