FANA, a US and Singapore-based travel company, is organizing the Friends Fan cruise, nicknamed “The One When They Went On a Cruise.” The seven-day sailing will depart from and return to Fort Lauderdale, with stops in Key West, Florida; Cozumel, Mexico; and George Town, Grand Cayman.
The cruise is not affiliated with Warner Bros., which owns the rights to “Friends” and shares a parent company with CNN. In addition, there will not be any cast members appearing. But for superfans, there’s plenty to do on board, including “Friends” trivia, a come-as-your-favorite-character costume contest and cooking demos.
Shore excursion options include a visit to the Key West Tropical Forest and Botanical Gardens, a tour of the Ernest Hemingway Home, tequila and rum tastings (not at the same time), a helicopter journey over Grand Cayman’s famous Seven Mile Beach, swimming with dolphins and stingrays (definitely the one Pheebs would pick), exploring a coral reef by submarine and participating in a beach cleanup project.
As of June 2021, Celebrity Cruises requires all passengers over the age of 16 to be vaccinated against Covid-19 and provide proof of inoculation. Travelers must also fill out a mandatory health questionnaire before being permitted to board.
