Blackwood, Goodman and Hunter will host retro parties and neon-filled events throughout the totally excellent week long adventure. “This cruise is an awesome experience,” says Nina Blackwood. “From the moment the sun rises until way past midnight, the fun never, ever stops. It packs in everything that we love about the 80s – the music, the fashion, the hair, the dance moves, the movies, classic arcade games, aerobics - and the people who love them!”

The cruise features concerts by mega artists every day and night, “Let’s Get Physical” aerobics workouts, 80s karaoke contests, iconic 80s movies shown under the stars, a live 80s Game Show, totally tubular theme night parties and vintage Donkey Kong, Mario Bros and Pac Man video games all brought on board for guests to play.
