Magic Johnson likes his vacation time, and he likes to do it with his family and buddies. However, the Lakers legend is kicking it up a notch this year. The star is vacationing with his wife, Cookie, and buddy LL Cool J on a massive super yacht for an insane amount of money.

The 62-year-old and Cookie went to see the remnants of Ancient Greece, and toured the citadel called Acropolis of Athens. They apparently had a great time, as Cool J and Magic both armed themselves with a sword and shield. They even posed with a man wearing full ancient Greek warrior attire.

Johnson has been going on the boat-trip vacation ever since 2017. The star dropped an insane $680,000 on booking the yacht for a week. He’s been revisiting it every year, and kept going even when the global pandemic was wreaking havoc.

Other celebrities such as Samuel L. Jackson, Rodney and Holly Robinson Peete were some of the names who were present on the trip in 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021. The Pulp Fiction might be vacationing this year as well.

The yacht is named Solandge, and it’s a total spectacle. While it costs a million dollars a week to rent out, it has every facility you can want, ranging from a jacuzzi to a helipad. The ship is 85-meter long, hosts 8 staterooms for 12 guests, and operates with a crew of 34 members. Looks like Johnson had a lot of fun on this trip, and will likely keep the tradition going.
