Phil & Mel In The Afternoon

Weekdays 8:30AM-10:00AM; 3:00PM-7:00PM

If the “Friends” reunion special left you wanting more, you’re in luck because you can now book a cruise dedicated to the show. Grab YOUR friends and make plans to set sail in 2022!

The Cruise with Friends is happening on the Celebrity Equinox ship and will be stopping in Key West, Grand Cayman and Cozumel, Mexico. The seven-day voyage will set sail from Fort Lauderdale, Florida in May 2022.

The destinations on this cruise will be secondary to all the experiences on the boat. There’s gonna be a  “Dress as your favorite Friend” costume party, a trivia contest, a chocolate-making demo and other “Friends”-inspired activities. The cruise’s website says, “Get ready to eat like Joey, joke like Chandler, cook like Monica, shop like Rachel, yoga like Phoebe, and dig like Ross.”You can now book your slot for the cruise and prices start at $1,648 for an inside stateroom. If you want to sail in luxury, the most expensive room with a balcony goes for $3,048. While no “Friends” cast members will be on the ship, the travel company behind the trip says the cruise is meant to unite fans of the show.

I’ll admit that “Friends” isn’t my all time favorite show. I’m more of a “Seinfeld” fan but this does sound like a fun trip!  I can tell you from experience that themed cruises are a blast! I’ve never been on a T.V. sitcom themed show, but I have been on a few rock cruises.

Years ago I went on the “Monsters of Rock Cruise” which is a 80’s rock themed cruise. SO much fun! The bands walk around and you’re able to get pics and bond with other old school 80’s rockers. I’m planning to go on the same cruise in 2022 with a group of girls.  I’ve also been on two Motorhead cruises. That cruise was for more heavy metal fans (which I am) and it was awesome!

Although these themed cruises are pricey, it’s a great bonding experience with a group of friends. There are so many activities, it’s hard to see/do them all.

I have no doubt that this cruise will sell out fast. Start practicing “Smelly Cat” and saying “How YOU doin'”
