About the Event

Our Inspiration for Something Different

An Extraordinary Adventure

Senpai Cosplay Cruises are the product of two veteran industry insiders - Rosie Van Schoor and Christie Bianco. Rosie has been a pro-level cosplayer for 15 years,  and Christie has been a highly sought-after travel industry insider for more than a decade. These two ladies combined their professional excellence, geeky enthusiasm, and love of travel to create a totally new experience - the cosplay cruise.

Part Cosplay Adventure & Part Vacation Excursion - The not-for-profit cosplay cruise offers all of the fun of a traditional cruise, with all of the creative energy of cosplay, without the typical "convention drama." 


SCC has created a unique space just for cosplayers, designed to encourage the art form, foster the creative community, and nurture the adventurous spirit. This year, we're starting with a small but supportive group of 30 to 80 cosplayers as we "test the waters".... but who knows? Someday, we may charter the entire vessel!

We welcome you on our high seas adventure. Who knows what lies beyond the ocean's horizon? We can discover it together!
