“Unlimited entertainment and food on Royal Caribbean and experts in port touring Bond locations? This will be the can’t miss week of the year!” said Matt Sherman, organizer of OO Sailin’ Two. Sherman, who has led dozens of Bond and spy fan events, promises great fun on tap for the agents descending on the Caribbean from around the world.
Fans will receive a guided locations tour in New Orleans, Louisiana from Live and Let Die on Saturday, March 8, 2014 before sailing aboard Royal Caribbean’s Serenade of the Seas to Key West to celebrate on location for Licence to Kill’s 25th Anniversary.
The cruise continues to Royal Caribbean’s private island, Coco Cay, and to Nassau in The Bahamas where Sherman and other experts will lead two more guided tours to locations from more Bond books and films, 15 in all during the week, including fan favorites Casino Royale, Thunderball and The Spy Who Loved Me.
“Fans will have their photos taken in the exact steps of Sean Connery, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig, five Bonds in all,” said Sherman. Must do locations like The One & Only Ocean Club and The British Colonial Hotel will be visited plus dozens more unique OO7 book and film locations, along with ample free time in Key West, New Orleans and The Bahamas.
At sea, fans will play unique and fun trivia challenges from “Worst Agent?” to “Subtext That Film!” to “The World’s Biggest Bond Bash”, and dine (and dine, and dine!) and do shows including the high-flying Royal Caribbean Aerial Acrobatics. Daily themed fun includes sipping potables at the 1960s-themed R Bar and the Serenade’s British pub at CBN meet ups, free lessons on a unique gyroscopic table in the Bombay Billiards Club and playing the night away with the gang at the Serenade’s Casino Royale. First time cruisers are welcomed and will be in the party atmosphere straight away.
Sherman has hosted previous Bond locales tours and fan meets in New Orleans, Key West and The Bahamas, and in Chicago, Jamaica, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, New Orleans, New York and San Francisco, which have featured on TV and in print internationally. His Bond collectibles have appeared in Ripley’s Believe It or Not! and on HGTV and VH-1.
