So youâ€™ve got all these Halloween costumes based off iconic horror characters (Jason, Freddy, Candyman, etc.) and you consider yourself the biggest fan of Halloween/horror, right? Well, what if I told you that next year, in 2013, you could spend Halloween night with the actors of your favorite horror icons?
Oh sorry â€“ I forgot the best part: youâ€™d be spending this time on a cruise ship sailing from Miami, FL, on October 28 to Nassau, Half Moon Cay, and Freeport, before returning back to Miami on November 2.
Thatâ€™s right â€“ Alice Cooper is welcoming you to join him and a bunch horror icons on the Ship of Fear, the largest â€œhouse of horror on the high seas.â€ For 5 days and 5 nights, you can enjoy the luxurious amenities of a Carnival Victory cruise while enjoying the company of your favorite horror icons.
Want to soak in the sun while asking Kane Hodder what it was like to play Jason? Have a question for Mary Lambert about what it was like to bring Kingâ€™s Pet Cemetary to life? On this cruise, youâ€™ll have more than enough opportunities to do just that.
Plus, the cruise features various activities, such as live music from Cooper and Snider, in-depth Q&A panels with cast members and filmmakers, a zombie prom, and a classic horror reunion that features many of the genreâ€™s â€œbiggest names in front of and behind the camera.â€
List of expected cruise horror guests:
- Alice Cooper
- Dee Snider
- Joe Dante (Director of Gremlins)
- Don Coscarelli (Director of Phantasm series)
- Mick Garris (Director of The Stand)
