It’s been more than a decade since the iconic NBC TV show “Friends” ended, but for many, a love for the sitcom still rings true today – and soon, fans can get a chance to book a cruise trip dedicated to the show.

On June 2, travel agency Fana World Travel announced it will be launching a “Friends”-themed cruise that will set sail from May 15 to May 21, 2022. Five hundred people will get to share their laughter, love, and favorite moments of the ’90s TV series on a 317.30m-long cruise ship.

Passengers on the Cruise with “Friends” will board the Celebrity Equinox ship, which will depart from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, according to the travel agency’s website.

The seven-day cruise will make stops in Key West, Florida, Grand Cayman, and Cozumel, Mexico, the website says.

The ship and its experiences will be filled with “Friends” references. There will be a “Dress as your Favorite Friend” party, trivia contest, a chocolate-making demo, and other “Friends” activities, a spokesperson for the travel agency told Insider.

“Get ready to eat like Joey, joke like Chandler, cook like Monica, shop like Rachel, yoga like Phoebe, and dig like Ross,” the website says.

Bookings are currently open for the cruise getaway. Prices start at $1,648.66 for an inside stateroom. The most expensive room, which includes a balcony, is listed for $3,048.66.

Each room includes complimentary WiFi, a premium beverage package, a $150 shore excursion credit per person, gratuities, taxes, and fees. Travel insurance is not included, the website says.

The Celebrity Equinox ship has 10 dining venues, 13 decks, free WiFi, multiple pools, and a grass lawn.

Farah Samoo, the co-founder of Fana World Travel, told Insider in an email that the cruise is meant to unite fans of the show.

“We love the ‘Friends’ TV show and wanted to give fans an opportunity to connect and make new friends with like-minded people,” Samoo told Insider. “The ‘Friends’ reunion just made us more determined to make this happen.”

According to the cruise’s website, fans won’t be seeing any of the “Friends” cast members on the ship.

The “Friends” actors recently appeared in the show’s reunion, which aired in May.

In the unscripted reunion special on HBO Max, the cast, which included Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer, reminisced on their time on the show.

The reunion show made waves as millions of viewers tuned in to watch the cast in the Manhattan apartment set for the last time.
