As Fear the Walking Dead has shown us, even the open ocean is no escape from the zombie apocalypse. Maybe you’d have a better chance with the cast of the original Walking Dead by your side? Now you can do just that with a Comic Con cruise!
Officially, the new cruise is called Fan2Sea Comic Con Cruise. It’s essentially a massive pop culture convention, just like a normal Comic Con. The difference is it takes place on a world-class cruise ship sailing across the Caribbean.
The four-day adventure runs from January 19-23, 2017 with tickets starting at $997 for a single-person cabin. Royal Caribbean International’s ship, Brilliance of the Sea, will depart from Tampa, Florida, with stops in Key West and Cozumel, Mexico.
Of course, the big question you’ll have now is “which Walking Dead stars will be on board”? Believe me, it’s a pretty great line-up. And they’ll be accompanied by the cast of Stranger Things and several legendary comic book creators. Keep reading for the line-up…!
The Walking Dead, Stranger Things, and More
Walking Dead fans will find plenty to love on the Fan2Sea Comic Con cruise. The cast members that will be onboard are Sonequa Martin-Green (Sasha), Seth Gilliam (Father Gabriel), Madison Lintz (Sophia), Lew Temple (Axel), and Michael Rooker (Merle Dixon).
In addition to panels and autograph opportunities with The Walking Dead stars, the cruise is also offering an exclusive Walking Dead cocktail party. For an additional $195, you can mix and mingle with the cast and enjoy drinks and hors d’oeuvres. Plus, an autograph and photo with the cast member of your choice is included!
In addition to The Walking Dead, six stars from the smash-hit Netflix series Stranger Things will be onboard. Frank Miller, the creator of comic books such as Sin City, 300, and The Return of the Dark Knight will also be on the Fan2Sea cruise. Other comic book legends taking part include Brian Azzarello, Andy Kubert, Chris Sims, Frank Tieri, Mark Waid, Scott Snyder, Greg Capullo, and Gail Simone.
