Attention Game of Thrones lovers, your dream vacation is coming.
Fans of the hit HBO series, Game of Thrones, should mark their calendars for this truly unique cruise experience that will set sail in Europe in 2021.
Dalmatian Travel & Events has created the ultimate experience for people who can’t get enough of George R. R. Martin’s fantasy novels and corresponding hit TV series. Starting in September 2021, the company’s "Cruise of Thrones" excursions will bring diehard fans on amazing adventures to Game of Thrones filming locations throughout Europe.
Guests can choose from multiple itineraries that include two eight-day excursions that either sail towards the north or towards the south or real super fans can enjoy a 16-day journey that lets you sail both cruises back to back.
The ports of call in the eight-day northern cruise include filming locations in Iceland, Ireland and Northern Ireland. While in Iceland, guests will visit familiar locales such as the Fist of the First Men, the Bloody Gate, and Jon & Ygritte’s cave. And in Ireland, they will be able to get a glimpse of The Wall, Castle Black, Hardhome, Winterfell, Pyke, the King’s Road and more.
On the eight-day southern cruise, guests will be able to enjoy the sights, sounds, and warm weather of Spain, Malta, and Croatia, otherwise known as Dorne, Essos and King’s Landing. In Spain, travelers can see the Sunspear and the Water Gardens, the Tower of Joy, the Citadel and the Long Bridge of Volantis. In Malta, fans will visit the original filming home of King’s Landing as well as a trip to Mdina to see more of the seat of Aegon the Conquerer. Lastly, in Dubrovnik, guests will be able to explore the main filming location for Kings Landing. Who knows, maybe some die-hard Cersei fans will be able to make that walk of shame.
The 16-day itinerary includes all of the features of the shorter cruises.
Packages for the cruises begin at $5,130 per person. A deposit of $1000 per person is due at the time of reservation.
“We imagined and developed an experience like nothing you’ve ever seen before,” said Lynette Durovic, owner of Dalmatian Travel & Events.
In addition to the fantastical locations that they’ll visit, guests will also be able to spend their entire journey on a luxury passenger ship that has been outfitted in the medieval fantasy style of the Game of Thrones aesthetic. Guests are, of course, invited to dress up as their favorite characters. Onboard activities include panels, discussions, podcasts, lectures, wine tasting, fan art auction, performances, storytelling, shopping, a spa, excursions, gaming room, Cosplay parade, scavenger hunt, and game shows.
The Cruise of Thrones website also teases that there will be special guests (presumably people who have worked on the show) on the cruise as well, though specific names have not yet been announced.
