Royal Caribbean

A murder mystery cruise is scheduled to set sail on the world's largest cruise ship next spring.

Organizer Whodunit Productions has included a cruise aboard the 5,400-passenger Oasis of the Seas in their upcoming roster of live mystery cruises. The mystery begins on the first night of the cruise, when participants board the ship and are given a role to play and meet the rest of the characters. At some point a crime occurs, and a detective appears on the scene to help solve the case. Throughout the rest of the cruise clues are slipped under cabin doors, secret meeting or calls with the cast are planned, and actors tip-off passengers while they are dining together.

Billed as the "Diamond Mob Family Getaway," participants are encouraged to play along and dress up in mob wear such as black suits and fedoras for the voyage. Those who do not want to wear costumes can still participate in the mystery, and Whodunit assures those who are shy "lookcan just sit back and watch the plot unfold."

The week-long cruise will set sail from Fort Lauderdale on April 2nd and make stops in Falmouth, Jamaica; Cozumel, Mexico; and Labadee, Royal Caribbean's private beach in Haiti.

USA Today reported Whodunit Prouctions has been working with Royal Caribbean to offer mystery cruises since 1991. To date, they have featured comedic murder mysteries on more than 100 sailings. A normal-sized murder mystery cruise group ranges anywhere from 70 to 300 people, and each cruise has its own mysterious theme.

The cost to participate in the mystery is $129 per person in addition to the cost of the cabin. Currently, cabins for this cruise are starting at $890 per person. The fee for the murder mystery can be paid directly to Royal Caribbean along with the final cabin payment. Only those who sign up can become involved in the mystery.
