Harry Potter cruise could be magical

Harry Potter cruise could be magical

A new wizard-themed ocean offering is on its way

As if by magic, a new Harry Potter cruise package designed for fans of all things Hogwarts will soon be hitting US shores.

It may have been well over a year since the final film in the Harry Potter series hit cinema screens and even longer since the last book was published, but it would appear that the marketing machine behind everyone's favourite wizard is showing little signs of slowing down.

The latest addition to the ever-expanding range of Harry Potter-themed experiences is a new five-night cruise aboard the Golden Princess liner.

Setting off from Los Angeles on November 27th, the package is currently priced at £415 per person, with the deal including food, accommodation and on-board entertainment.

Whimsic Alley is organising the cruise trip, with company founder Stan Goldin promising that fans will be left spellbound…so to speak.

"For the entire time they’re with us, they become students at a wizarding academy, subject to the challenges and ordeals inherent in that experience," he said.

The cruise is the latest movie-themed voyage to hit the high seas, following in the footsteps of such bizarre additions as the recent Saw film franchise cruise.
