Fans of ‘The Walking Dead’ will be able to meet and have their photo taken with star Norman Reedus onboard the first ever Wizard World Cruise – think comic con at sea. Rose Tours, operator of entertainment theme cruises featuring the likes of New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys, will host the voyage.
The three-night cruise will embark from Miami, Florida on Norwegian Cruise Line’s Norwegian Sky, sailing Dec. 2-5, 2016 to Nassau, Bahamas.
Besides “The Walking Dead”’s Norman Reedus – fresh off the Walker Stalker Cruise from earlier this year – other special guests will include actor Ernie Hudson from “Ghostbusters,” as well as Barry Bostwick (“The Rocky Horror Picture Show,” “Spin City”), Sara Underwood (“Attack of the Show”), Billy Martin (lead guitarist/keyboardist, Good Charlotte and artist, “TMNT”), Phil Ortiz (animator, “The Simpsons,” “Muppet Babies”) and cosplayers Jackie Craft, Abby Dark Star and Zen Dragon. More featured celebrities and creators will be announced soon.
“We are excited to partner with Rose Tours for our first-ever Wizard World Cruise!,” said Randy Malinoff, Wizard World COO. “Rose Tours has the best reputation for providing the fans with a great experience on their celebrity cruises. And having Norman Reedus among our inaugural guests is the best treat we can give our loyal fans!”
Like Wizard World on land, the cruise will showcase an Artist Alley featuring comic creators, cosplay contests, exhibitors, parties, video game tournaments and more. Cruise packages begin at $749 per person, encompassing photo-ops with the celebrities, all-inclusive meals and bars, a special cruise-exclusive gift and total access to Wizard World onboard events across the three days.
