Harry Potter is all set to hit the high seas, are you ?

Say “Alohomora” and open the doors to a magical four-night Harry Potter themed cruise, complete with robes and wands, hosted by Whimsic Alley in association with Princess Cruises. The cruise, on board the Golden Princess, includes endless themed activities and events throughout the sailing, which makes stops in San Diego and Ensenada. Cruise fares start at $650 per person. This fee reportedly includes all entertainment, activities and accommodation onboard. 

Campers will be fully immersed in the ‘wizard-world’ experience. For the entire time of the cruise, they become students at a wizarding academy, subject to the challenges and ordeals inherent in that experience. “We’ve been soliciting ideas from our fans since last year and have tried incorporating as many of their suggestions as possible. We’re proud to be able to offer this trip on the Golden Princess. We consider Princess one of the world’s finest cruise lines,” said Stan Goldin, founder of Whimsic Alley.

Inspired by J.K.Rowling’s Diagon Alley, the winding lane of wizarding shops underneath London, Goldin opened Whimsic Alley eight years ago in Los Angeles. It is an avenue of intricately designed shops—featuring wands, quills, witches’ hats, curios, wizard jewelry and apparel—and a Great Hall used for hundreds of parties, teas, balls, banquets and luncheons.

Passengers are allowed to bring their children, but no one under the age of 18 may participate in group events. There is no booking deadline as of now, but it is expected to sell out before you can say wingardium leviosa!!
