"Explore the Taylor Swift cruise designed by Swifties"
Taylor Swift fans can now join a themed cruise to celebrate the singer's "eras" and make new friends in 2024.
Taylor Swift fans will soon have the opportunity to experience her "cruise era" if they missed out on seeing her Eras Tour in person or on the big screen.
A trio of Swifties has come together to organize a cruise specifically for the singer's fan base, setting sail from Miami, Florida on October 21, 2024, just one day after Swift's final show of her three-day stint in the city.
The cruise will make stops at Coco Cay, Royal Caribbean's Private Island, and Nassau, Bahamas, before returning to Miami on day five. In addition to being Swifties, the three women who organized the cruise, Jessica Malerman, Nicole Rivera, and Shelby Reyes, are all travel agents for Marvelous Mouse Travels. They made sure to include a disclaimer on the cruise's website, noting that they are not endorsed or affiliated with TAS Rights Management or Taylor Swift.
The cruise's website promises a celebration of all things Taylor, with opportunities to make new friends, dress up in favorite eras, trade friendship bracelets, and enjoy all the amenities the ship has to offer. The hosts have planned a variety of Taylor Swift-themed events, including a welcome cocktail party, nightly era outfit themes, Taylor Trivia, themed dance parties, and friendship bracelet swapping.
The tradition of friendship bracelets dates back to the beginning of the Eras Tour and ties back to the Swift song "You're On Your Own, Kid" from her 2022 album, Midnights. Fans have taken the Grammy Award winner's advice to heart, with friendship bracelets becoming a staple of the Eras Tour.
Fans who choose to book the cruise have the option of three stateroom layouts: interior, boardwalk balcony, or oceanview balcony. Prices range from $1,573 for an interior room to $2,109 for an oceanview balcony room. Each room holds two guests, but accommodations for three or four people can be arranged at the time of booking.
The cruise's website states that all three room layouts currently have a waitlist and require a $100 deposit per person. A group rate is available until the allotted number of rooms for each category is booked, or until the Group Final Payment date, with a $100 onboard credit offered for select double occupancy rooms.
In summary, Taylor Swift fans have an exciting opportunity to embark on a cruise dedicated to celebrating the singer's music and connecting with fellow Swifties. With themed events, friendship bracelet swapping, and the chance to visit beautiful destinations, the Taylor Swift Fan Cruise promises to be an unforgettable experience for fans of all ages.
