Game of Thrones: Visit Westeros with Royal Caribbean cruises

Emmy Griffiths

Game of Thrones fans were disappointed to hear that the hit fantasy show, which usually premieres around late March, won't air until 16 July. So hey, if Westeros will not come to us, we guess we should go to Westeros! Fortunately, Royal Caribbean's Rhapsody of the Seas cruise can help fans of the show visit one of the most iconic filming locations: Dubrovnik, Croatia. So what are the top picks for this stunning city? Check out the best things to do while visiting King's Landing – ahem - Dubrovnik!

You might not be able to spot Stannis' fleet (let's face it, there's wasn't much left of it by the season two finale anyway!) but the Adriatic coastal scenery from a cable car is one of the most picturesque ways to explore the city. You gave even pretend you're getting a dragon's perspective if you so wish!
