The Furry Cruise is an event involving furries booking as a group on a cruise ship. It takes place on an annual basis, and started in 2005. Many take fursuits and entertain themselves and the other cruise members. It is the only furry conventions/meet where most (if not all) of the activities take place in a sailing ship rather than on land (the other being the former RBW, partially succeeded by the LondonFurs Summer Boat Party).
