Friends fans, we've got great news. Right off the back of the special HBO Max Friends reunion, it has been announced that a special Friends-themed cruise is being launched and by the sounds of things, it's set to be a super fans' dream! 

Travel agency Fana World Travel announced earlier this month that they'd been working on Cruise with "Friends"—a seven-day cruise inspired by the hit sitcom onboard the Celebrity Equinox ship, which will set sail on May 15, 2022.

Departing from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, the cruise will be making stops in Key West, Florida, Grand Cayman, and Cozumel, Mexico throughout the week, returning to its first departing destination on May 21, 2022. Let's just hope the humidity isn't too much... 

It will house up to five hundred guests and according to the travel agency's website, there are plenty of fun activities and experiences onboard, all of which include Friends references, of course. 

We're talking trivia games, costumes, food and drink, all based on the lives of Rachel, Ross, Monica, Chandler, Phoebe, and Joey. "Get ready to eat like Joey, joke like Chandler, cook like Monica, shop like Rachel, yoga like Phoebe, and dig like Ross," the travel company says.

Bookings are now officially open but as you've probably guessed, it's not exactly the most purse-friendly trip. Prices start at $1,648.66, which will get you an inside stateroom. Meanwhile, the most expensive room, which includes a balcony, is listed for $3,048.66.

As stated on the website, each room includes complimentary WiFi, a premium beverage package, a $150 shore excursion credit per person, gratuities, taxes, and fees. However, you'll have to sort out your own travel insurance and anything additional. 

Spring 2022 may sound far away right now but as we've seen before, the new year will come around in no time. So if this sounds like a trip for you or the Friends obsessed loved one in your life, get your booking secured while you can!
