Taylor Swift fans have taken their love of the singer to stadiums, aeroplanes and cinemas – and now they’re setting sail.

A four-night Swift-themed cruise will set out from Miami in October 2024, organised by three travel agents and self-professed Swift fans (Swifties).

Although Swift and her record label are not affiliated with the event, organisers have timed it so the ship will set off a day after the singer’s final Miami Eras Tour performance.

Aboard popular cruise line Royal Caribbean’s vessel Allure of the Seas, which can carry almost 7000 guests, Swifties will travel all the way to the Bahamas before returning to Miami.

On-board activities are yet to be finalised, but diehard fans can expect to take part in Swift-themed trivia, karaoke, a dance party and a friendship bracelet exchange (the latter has become a tradition at the singer’s concerts).

But the experience won’t come cheap; the cost of a room for two guests range from $US1573 ($2430) to $US2109 ($3259).

“This cruise is for all fans, so bring your besties, your mums and dads, your baby fans, and if you need someone to room with, post on our page and ask!” the cruise website proclaims.

The cruise itinerary includes:

  • Day 1: Depart from Miami
  • Day 2: CocoCay (a Bahamas island owned by Royal Caribbean)
  • Day 3: Nassau, Bahamas
  • Day 4: Day at sea
  • Day 5: Arrive at Miami

Unfortunately, tickets for the cruise may be even harder to get your hands on than tickets for one of Swift’s concerts.

Waitlists are open for all three room options, and tickets must be booked through one of the three cruise organisers.

Despite the high cost and difficulty getting tickets, keen Swifties are likely to lap up the opportunity to spend days surrounded by all things Swift if their recent behaviour is anything to go by.

Some of the singer’s concerts have sold out within minutes; Swifties have been known to host impromptu singalongs to the star’s tunes on board planes; and fans treated cinema screenings of Swift’s recently released concert film as live concerts, complete with dancing, screaming and friendship bracelet swaps.
