There’s a Game of Thrones cruise coming in 2021

Nobody panic, but there’s a Game of Thrones-themed cruise kicking off in 2021!

If you or your clients are fans of the hit HBO series, mark your calendars and get ready for the ultimate mega-fan experience.

Hosted by Dalmation Travel and Events, the ‘Cruise of Thrones’ will take travellers to major filming locations from the TV show across Europe spread out on two eight-day itineraries that take fans either north or south or, if you’re a diehard GoT fan, you can take both back to back.

Ports of call include Iceland, Ireland and Northern Ireland on the northern cruise, where guests can check out the Fist of the First Men, the Bloody Gate, Jon and Ygritte’s cave, the Wall, Castle Black, Hardhome, Winterfell, Pyke and the King’s Road, just to name a few.

The southern cruise will take travellers to Spain, Malta, Croatia, Essos and Kings Landing, where they will see the Sunspear, the Water Gardens, the Tower of Joy, the Citadel, the Long Bridge of Volantis, King’s Landing and the seat of Aegon the Conquerer.

Not only will fans get to see the filming locations from their favourite scenes, but the luxury passenger ship they travel in will also be decked out in the medieval style of the series and, of course, guests are invited to dress up as their favourite characters.

There will also be a range of onboard activities including panel 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 will set sail in September 2021 and you can go here to see pricing.
