Golden Girls cruise planned for 2020

Fans of the Golden Girls better start saving - a special cruise themed on the cult TV sitcom will set sail in 2020.

The five night cruise will leave Miami, Florida and make a return trip to Mexico next February.

While Rose Nylund's hometown of St Olaf has been left off the itinerary, the ship will stop at Key West on its way south.

The cruise will take place on the Celebrity Infinity millennium class cruise ship, which has room for 2170 passengers and nearly 1000 crew.

While Blanche Devereaux would probably be making her own, less than savoury plans at the captain's table, events onboard include Golden Girls trivia quiz, a Key West Golden Girls bar crawl, a fancy dress contest and a special 'One Night in St Olaf' dance party.

The cruise leaves Miami on February 24 next year, with single fares beginning at around NZ$1440.
