The ship itself that has been outfitted in the "medieval fantasy style of the Game of Thrones aesthetic" and customers are "invited to dress up as their favorite characters".

The cruises are being run by Dalmatian Travel & Events and use Celebrity X vessels, with as-yet unnamed celebrity guests promised.

As well as the usual onboard cruise ship attractions, Cruise of Thrones offers many Game of Thrones-themed activities including panels, discussions, podcasts, a Cosplay parade, fan art auctions and a tourney.

The Cruise of Thrones sets sail in September, 2021.
