Setting sail in September 2021, Cruise of Thrones will take fans of HBO’s Game of Thrones to the hit show's most notable filming locations.
“A lot of people are making money on the Game of Thrones franchise,” Dalmatian Travel and Events’ Lynette Durovic told FOX Business’ Stuart Varney. She explained that her company's cruises have sparked a lot of interest and that customers have already made down payments on reservations.
Fans are putting down $1,000 per person to save their place on one of the journies.
Each lasting eight days, the cruises will set out, one going to locations in Northern Europe and the other heading to sites along the Dalmatian coast in Croatia and the Mediterranean.
In the North, cruise-goers will visit Castle Black, Winterfell, the King’s Road, and other notable sites before traveling to filming locations “beyond the wall” in Iceland, according to the cruise line.
Durovic, however, argued that the most iconic destination for their guests will be the city of Dubrovnik on the Southern cruise. Dubrovnik is a city on the Dalmatian coast in Croatia and is the filming location for King's Landing, the capital of the fictional kingdom Westeros in the Game of Thrones series.
The franchise is responsible for bringing an estimated 350,000 visitors to Northern Ireland each year and has generated over $318 million worth of business to the region since production of the show began in 2010, BBC reported.
