    I have to say, although a weekend at Disney in November sounds great, the Soap Cruise has it all over any other fan event. Not only do I know first hand, several of our fellow cruisers last year confirmed it!

    I can't wait til this year's Super Soap Weekend, it was AMAZING last year and I know this year will be even better! Hoping and praying to go on the soap cruise too.

    i agree with jcrobinson, i will probably never go back to ssw again. i have done 12 of them. once you go on the cruise nothing else compares. in fact instead of during ssw we are going to savannah and hilton head. i can't wait for cruise #2.

    the person on this cruise who is knew this year is bradford. i just love his character on gh. i heard he is funny and very nice. i heard that he really loves his fans.

    Bradford is a sweet guy. I wish they would do the cruise over the summer or something. I work for the school board so I can't take off. Hopefully the next one will be at a different time where I can go.
    Hope you guys have fun. I will be at SSW again this year.

    i have done 12 ssw but i will probably not go again since the cruise is triple times better. i will go if i win. the soap opera cruise is just awesome.

    the list of people so far is great, but you get 1 or 2 minutes with them and some of them are going are the 2 different cruises where you get to spend 3 and 4 days with them. no more ssw for me. 16 of them are going on the first cruise, 23 are going on the second cruise.

    what is the soap nation going to be. i guess abc is affected by the economy. will i did at least 11 of them. i am not going this year, like i said before once you go on the soap opera cruise everything is pale compared to this. i will be curious to see what they do special.

    I can't believe this is the last one. I am 14 and have been wishing to go to it the last 3 years. I even live in Florida, but was never able to go yet. I really hope I can go this year. My dream is to meet Michael Easton. Oh my god, I would die! But I did just so happen to meet Kassie Depaiva and Trevor St. John at the mall here in south FL. Just Michael Easton, If I can meet him, I'll be totally fine!
