“The Golden Girls” aired on NBC from 1985-92.

Gather your pals and confidants, a “Golden Girls” cruise is sailing in 2020.

Seems Flip Phone Events is throwing a party and inviting everyone they know — and it’s a “Golden Girls” fan’s dream.

The five-night Western Caribbean cruise — aboard the Celebrity Infinity — will set sail from — where else? — Miami. To kick it all off, there will be a Caftan Sail Away Party (with cheesecake!)

Other events on the itinerary will be the Rusty Anchor Karaoke Party, Golden Girls Trivia, Shady Pines Craft Corner, Key West Golden Girls Bar Crawl, a “Golden Girls” costume contest, One Night in St. Olaf Dance Party (which features a game of Ugel and Flugel), and Dorothy’s Bingo.

It launches at 4 p.m. Feb. 24, 2020. From Miami, the party sails to Key West, then Cozumel, then back to Miami.

The show, which aired on NBC from 1985 through 1992, starred Bea Arthur, Rue McClanahan, Betty White, and Estelle Getty as Dorothy, Blanche, Rose, and Sophia.

While the cruise is listed on Celebrity’s website for as low as $379, the “Golden Girls” package is only available through Flip Phone’s events site and ranges from $986.69 for an oceanview cabin to $1,181.69 for a deluxe oceanview balcony room.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
