It might not be The Black Pearl from Pirates of the Caribbean, but there will still be plenty of zombies. The Norwegian Pearl is hosting a four-day Walking Dead-themed cruise in February 2019, sailing from Tampa, Florida to Nassau, Bahamas. The cruise is the fourth and final voyage of the Walker Stalker Cruise series, and will be the last opportunity for 2,500 fans to mingle with their favorite Walking Dead celebrities.

Modeled after the popular AMC TV show, which portrays life following a zombie apocalypse, the 2019 Walking Dead cruise will feature stars from the show such as Norman Reedus (Daryl), Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Negan), Ross Marquand (Aaron), Tom Payne (Jesus), Chandler Riggs (Carl), Laurie Holden (Andrea), Cooper Andrews (Jerry), and Michael Traynor (Nicholas). In addition to rubbing shoulders with celebrities, fans will enjoy photo ops, costume contests, live music, and scary theme nights.

While you might be mingling with zombies, you’ll still be living like a well-fed human with the ship’s 16 dining options, 15 bars and lounges, bowling alley, casino, spa, video arcade, pool, and hot tubs. And once you arrive in the Bahamas, you can relax on one of the island’s famous white-sand beaches.

Since this is the last cruise in the series, tickets are likely to go fast. Tickets for the February 21st-25th cruise go on sale July 13th to the general public.
