Oakland Raiders Cruise to Tackle the High Seas
Some of the rowdiest Raiders fans might soon be ditching their silver and black face paint for some sunscreen.
The Oakland Raiders just announced their first ever cruise for fans, a seven-day sailing through the Mexican Riviera onboard Royal Caribbean's Mariner of the Seas.
According to a press release posted February 22nd on the team's website, "Raider Legends" will be the highlight of the cruise, hosting meet and greets and other activities throughout the excursion. Famous Raiders scheduled to attend include Greg Townsend, Fred Biletnikoff, Jack Tatum, Cliff Branch, Kenny Stabler, Tim Brown, and Jeff Barnes. The Raiderettes will also be on board for a photo session.
The tailgate party on the seas will make stops in Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan, and Puerto Vallarta. Proceeds from the cruise will benefit the Fred and Angela Biletnikoff Foundation, a non-profit offering support to women coping with domestic violence and substance abuse.
Mariner of the Seas has a capacity of 3,114 passengers. The ship includes an ice-skating rink, 9-hole miniature golf course, full-size basketball court, rock climbing wall, and casino. The ship also includes multiple dining options, including Johnny Rockets, Ben & Jerry's, Portofino Italian Restaurant, and Vintages wine bar.
