Eagles fans rightfully have a bit of a reputation, both around the city of Philadelphia and around the country, for being some of the most “enthusiastic” football fans, full stop. For those who wish they could party like its game day seven days a week, here's your chance.
The Eagles announced the first-ever "Philadelphia Eagles and First Class Cruise," a partnership with Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines designed specifically for Birds fans. The inaugural seven-day cruise will set sail March 21, 2021, according to the team, on a ship called the 'Anthem of the Seas', from Cape Liberty, New Jersey.
As you can see from the video below, The Anthem of the Seas is a huge ship, and according to a promo video from former Eagles linebacker Ike Reese, roughly 4,000 Eagles fans will be aboard.
Also aboard the ship will be Eagles legends including Reese, David Akers, Harold Carmichael, Vince Papale, Mike Quick, Merrill Reese, and Jeremiah Trotter. The team promises "up to 20 current players and Eagles legends."
"This is the ultimate experience for any Eagles fan," Catherine Carlson, Philadelphia Eagles Senior Vice President of Revenue and Strategy, said in a release. "We are always searching for new and innovative ways to bring our fans closer to the team, so we are excited to announce that this new partnership with First Class Cruises enables us to do that. Sailing on the Anthem of the Seas, one of the world’s most exclusive and premier cruise ships, will offer that once-in-a-lifetime opportunity every Eagles fan has dreamed of."
