Game of Thrones-inspired Cruise of Thrones is coming in 2021

Travel has an enigmatic quality of bringing us closer to the world as well as ourselves. For many people, it has become a passion-filled-career, where they travel to different parts of the world and describe their experiences to other people in detail. However, for most it is still a pursuit of pleasure. We saw a lot of travelling-around in Game of Thrones. The scenic views that were offered throughout the show were breath-taking. But what if the luxurious pleasure of travel and the picturesque locations of Westeros came together in a package? The product is Cruise of Thrones, an exclusive luxury cruise that will visit the filming locations of Game of Thrones all over Europe. Read on!

Brought to life by Dalmatian Travel & Events, the cruise will take the travelers through Iceland, Northern Ireland, Spain, Malta, and Croatia with two unique itineraries. Lynette Durovic, the owner of the company, is a huge fan of A Song of Ice and Fire books by George R.R. Martin and the HBO show and that’s where the inspiration for the ambitious cruise is rooted. She revealed the details surrounding the experience while talking to Express.co.uk.

The idea for the cruise came to her on a Game of Thrones tour where the excitement and the thirst for more compelled her to take on this seafaring initiative. Recreating the complete environs of such a giant fantasy world needs a lot of planning, hard work, and innovation. Her company has managed different projects such as weddings, conventions, relief project, conferences, reunion cruises. But the daunting international scale of Cruise of Thrones is a first.

Cruise of Thrones offers an 8-day Northern Cruise, an 8-day Southern Cruise, and a 16-day Known World Cruise (sailing you back-to-back on the Northern and Southern Cruises). There’s also an add-on side trip to view the steps of Dragonstone in Bilbao, Spain.

The Northern ride takes you to The Wall and beyond. The actual locations of Iceland, Northern Ireland, and Ireland will show you the Fist of the First Men and the grounds of Winterfell. Meanwhile, the Southern trip goes to the Mediterranean. Through ports in Spain, Malta and Croatia, one could visit Dorne, Essos and King’s Landing respectively. The Known World Cruise will consist of both the Northern and the Southern cruises and give a full tour around the filming sites of Game of Thrones. Moreover, the side trip of Dragonstone comes free if you purchase both.

If you think it seems like an adventure on land, there’s much more on the deck. The cruise promises endless activities and surprises for the people. Celebrities, panels, lectures, musicians, dance performances, storytelling, top notch dining experiences, cosplay, fan art, specialty drinks, games, casino, spa, wine tasting, ice carving. The list goes on and on. With exquisite service and indulgences for all the senses, it looks like one would get every possible treat. “What they will not get is boredom. I can guarantee that one,” Ms. Durovic assured.

She describes the cruise as “for fans, from a fan.” A premium offering no doubt! Cruise of Thrones will start sailing in September 2021. For more details, visit cruiseofthrones.com.

After Game of Thrones Studio Tour, this is another exciting development for the fans to glimpse the world of Westeros. However, unlike the studio tour, Cruise of Thrones is not endorsed by HBO or any Game of Thrones related entity. It is a private enterprise that seeks to bring the mythology of ice and fire to the shores of its believers. What are your thoughts? Does it excite you? Tell us in the comments.

Emilia Clarke greets Game of Thrones co-star Iain Glen with throwback pics as he joins Instagram

Game of Thrones star Iain Glen has finally decided to join the social media platform Instagram. Guess who is the first one to welcome him? His Game of Thrones co-star Emilia Clarke! Fans of the highly popular TV series know Iain’s character Jorah Mormont shared an unrequited love for Emilia’s character Daenerys Targaryen. Though his feelings were never reciprocated, Daenerys did respect and care for him. On Monday, Emilia welcomed the veteran actor with some rare behind-the-scenes photos on Instagram.

Glen recently made his Instagram debut and an elated Clarke shared the news with her 26.9 million followers. The actress posted a series of pictures with Glen from the sets of Game of Thrones and mentioned in the caption, “The man. The myth. The Legend @iainglen60 has joined Instagram. “Khaleeessi” My hero and my guide for over a decade. Please insta world show this man the lovin he deserves.”

Netizens were quick to respond to Clarke’s Instagram post that reminded them of the Game of Thrones and the relationship that the two characters shared on-screen. Many netizens termed it as the “friendzone” relationship. Commenting on Clarke’s latest post, Joey Santos wrote, “Friendzone re-established.” Another user remembered Glen as, “He was the hope for all those of us who were friendzoned.”

A few months ago, Game of Thrones alum Maisie Williams joined TikTok with a secret account. How do you feel about Iain Glen joining Instagram? Tell us in the comments below!

Age of Darkness: A survival RTS game inspired by Game of Thrones’ The Long Night

Video games and TV shows/movies have often worked hand-in-hand to help promote each other. They also provide the ultimate user experience, where players can live through their favourite films or series. Game of Thrones’ The Long Night was one of the most horrific and stressful episodes of the series. One game developer PlaySide recently released Age of Darkness, a horror survival video game heavily inspired by the Game of Thrones episode.

When starting development we were inspired by the Game of Thrones episode ‘The Long Night’,” explains James Berkelmans in an interview with PCGamesN, one of the game’s designers. “The whole idea being that when night came you had to hold your ground against a large horde of enemies, that’s where the idea of our death nights started.”

“We’ve created this system to give us the flexibility to create some amazing game moments,” says Mario Barone, another designer. “It goes without saying that the sheer amount of units our engine can allow is very impressive. Not only can we do this – but we can do so with many 3D effects and a highly detailed world.”

As the guardian of the last city, you go through an intense day/night cycle where you must balance building up your settlement and exploring the wilderness around you to hunt for valuable resources during the day. As night descends, there’s a brief window of time where enemies are tougher, but the rewards get better. When the ‘death night’ starts for real you’ll want to be behind your walls.

It’s been 10 years since ‘A Dance with Dragons’ was published

Published

on

Author George R. R. Martin’s most recent Game of Thrones novel, ‘A Dance with Dragons’ came out about a decade ago in July.

Game of Thrones wrapped up filming nearly two years ago, but it has been a decade since the most recent book in the series came out. Fans have been waiting for the next book Winds of Winter for forever now. George R. R. Martin keeps promising he is working on the novel, and this time he has promised he will complete it in early 2022. He said in an interview with WTTW recently that he thinks that his first priority, House of the Dragon, will “probably be on next spring” — and the next, long-awaited book in this series, The Winds of Winter.

Author George R. R. Martin’s most recent Game of Thrones novel, ‘A Dance with Dragons’ came out about a decade ago in July.

The last book to be published in the Game of Thrones series was A Dance with Dragons on July 12, 2011, almost 10 years ago. It had a lot of shocking and exciting stories, such as Jon Snow beheading Janos Slynt in the courtyard at Castle Black, Daenerys Targaryen mounting Drogon for the first time in Daznak’s Pit. There’s Cersei Lannister’s harrowing walk of shame, and there’s the Night’s Watch rebelling against Jon Snow.

However, Martin’s inability to write at a faster speed has deeply frustrated the fans. His long list of admirers has mostly turned into critics, which also includes famous literary figures such as horror icon Stephen King. Whether Martin likes it or not, it has been a lot of time since he last wrote a Game of Thrones book.
